Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem's dream of playing for India was fulfilled on Saturday when he made his international debut in the third Test against South Africa on his home ground.
And on Monday he made it a debut worth remembering as he finished with figures of 2/22 in South Africa's first innings at the JSCA Stadium.
Speaking after the close of the third day's play, Nadeem said that while he was bit nervous at the beginning, the nerves settled down as the game progressed.
"It feels nice that whatever hard work I put in, in the domestic circuit, paid off. Glad to make my debut at home. The Test cap has a different value for a cricketer, especially at home," he said.
Nadeem also said playing with ace spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja helped him improve his game and learn a lot.
"It is always nice to play with senior players. They (Ashwin and Jadeja) share their experience and they are the best spinners in the world. I try and learn by seeing them bowl," he said.
