The moment I cherish the most is our [Royal Challengers Bangalore] first win in Indian Premier League 2019. It took a while, of course. We didn't win the first six matches and were eagerly waiting for a victory. When it finally arrived, it felt really nice. It was a good match that we had in Punjab and a superb knock from AB de Villiers made the night all the more special.

Apart from this, I'll always remember the day when we visited Virat Kohli's house in Mumbai.

Anushka [Sharma] ma'am and he hosted us for dinner after we lost a close match against Mumbai Indians. We all were there till around 2 o'clock in the morning and ended up watching a live football game.
