Sandeep Warrier recalls how Sachin Tendulkar made him comfortable when he was injured during the 2014 IPL.
Sandeep, who hails from Thrissur, is employed with India Cements in Chennai.
The 29-year-old Sandeep, who is part of Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, said he's keeping himself fit during the forced break.
It has not been an easy track to bat on and Kerala would be hoping to stretch the lead to the 175-run mark on Monday and then put pressure on Hyderabad in the final innings.
The hosts, who lost half their side for just 44, ended the second day on 193/8 in reply to Kerala's first innings total of 164.
The Kerala pace spearhead says the team aims to qualify for the knockout phase in all three formats this season.
MI would like to carry on the winning momentum as 18 points and a better net run rate than both first-placed Chennai Super Kings and third-placed Delhi Capitals will give them two shots at qualifying for the final.
Kerala's dream run in the Ranji Trophy came to a grinding halt as they suffered an innings defeat to holders Vidarbha.
Kerala knocked off the target of 41 in 11 overs to pick up six points. Kerala, who have 13 points from three games, lead the nine-team Group B.
