Personally, he is extremely modest and the manner in which he holds himself is truly incredible.”

Sunrisers have frequently been hounded by center request misfortunes and are searching for a flexible batsman. Throughout the long term, Tripathi has played at practically all batting positions, be it opening, center request, or as a finisher.”I track down this one of a kind quality in me that assuming the administration needs me to bat up the request, I am alright with it. Also on the off chance that they need me to bat in the center request, I am agreeable. Since now I have the experience. In KKR, I batted at the two positions, so I am truly agreeable. Presently I know how to execute my arrangements at the two positions.”
