This marks his first stint in the IPL, and he expressed excitement after hearing positive feedback from fellow Kiwi players about the intensity of the crowd and the overall experience.

He went on to share his enthusiasm about joining the likes of Santner, Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell, and the legendary players like Dhoni and Jadeja. The New Zealand opener expressed immense gratitude for being involved in such an amazing franchise, highlighting the Kiwi connection with CSK coach Fleming.
