As far as his IPL career is concerned, he has played as many as 95 games in the tournament. He aggregated as much as 1236 runs at an average of 20.3 including seven half-centuries to his name.

On the contrary, he has been quite handy in terms of the ball as well. He has accounted for three dismissals in six innings in One-Day Internationals whereas he has taken five wickets in 5 innings in Twenty20 Internationals.
