Varun Chakravarthy reveals how he celebrated getting picked up in India's T20 WC squad

“My
wife
was
really
happy.
We
had
a
nice
dinner
after
that
(the
news).
I
also
spoke
to
my
parents
and
they
were
all
happy.
It
was
all
a
small
celebration.
The
bigger
duty
is
in
front
of
us.
So,
keeping
that
in
mind,
I
am
not
celebrating
too
much
now
itself,”
the
spinner,
who
is
currently
training
with
KKR
in
Abu
Dhabi,
told
KKR.in.

“I
feel
privileged
and
honoured
to
represent
India
for
the
World
Cup
and
I
hope
to
really
make
it
count,”
added
Varun
on
the
sidelines
of
a
training
session.

Varun
felt
playing
in
the
UAE
for
IPL
would
be
a
great
boost
to
prepare
for
the
World
Cup
as
getting
used
to
the
conditions
would
mean
an
early
advantage.

“It
will
really
help
the
players
who
are
playing
here
in
UAE
(for
IPL)
because
you
can
definitely
consider
it
as
good
preparation.
Getting
to
know
how
the
climate
is
in
Dubai
and
Abu
Dhabi
and
how
the
dew
comes
in,
how
the
pitches
can
play

all
this
knowledge
is
certainly
going
to
help
us
in
the
World
Cup,”
he
said.

Team
India
will
begin
their
campaign
in
the
multi-nation
tournament
on
October
24
when
they
take
on
arch-rivals
Pakistan.
