Playing as a wicket-keeper in the era of Mahendra Singh Dhoni was not an easy task, but Parthiv, with his passion for the game, played a key role in making a state like Gujarat a strong domestic cricket team. He said, ‘The Indian team went on a tour of New Zealand in 2009. Before that I scored 800 runs in Ranji Trophy and scored a century in Duleep Trophy final. I did not get a place in the national team then. I thought my career was over, but then I thought of something else and it was a decision to build a team.
