The Indian Test captain landed in trouble in the past due to his on-field aggression but the Delhi dasher claims he has learnt to be honest both on and off the field.

“At first when my fans increased, I was frustrated that people think me to be a different sort of a human being. It took time but I have learnt to work hard honestly and be myself on the field.
