His constant performances along with his attitude resulted in him becoming a key figure for the team and became the captain of the side in 2015 and since led this side to a world cup win in 2019 and broke several one-day records along the way with his aggressive, hard-hitting, fearsome approach, enviable depth and always attacking side.
