Chairman sir- your interview is over. Thank you. I am giving you blank cheque. Tell me if you have anything to share with us, if not, you may leave.

Me- i shared about how cricket is microcosm of my life and how being captain changed my perspective about the game.

Opinion – it was a relaxed interview. Most of the time I was smiling and they responded similarly. 2-3 times they laughed at me too Eg- how are you running non profit clinic? I said my dad funds it and i provide service.

Everyone keenly observe how to write,talk and walk.
So overall nice experience, however you never know how the marks are awarded.

Reading transcripts were extremely useful. Also i did not take any mocks.
