The all-rounder also revealed that two days before the IPL game against Delhi Capitals which CSK lost by 44 runs on Friday, his grandmother passed away in Australia.
"My grandma (mother of my mother) passed away on Wednesday. I want to send my love to my family back at home and I know how incredible mom was my grandmother to my mom. My heart goes out to my family at home. I'm sorry that I can't be there right now. My love goes to you," the 39-year-old said.
