Cape Town - Australia left-arm seamer Ben Dwarshuis admits to feeling nervous ahead of a maiden Indian Premier League campaign with the Kings XI Punjab. 

The man who made a name for himself in the Big Bash with the Sydney Sixers received the news that he had been picked up for the IPL shortly after earning his first call-up for Australia for the T20I tri-series involving England and New Zealand. 

Dwarshuis told the Kings XI Punjab's official website: “I was over the moon. 

“It all happened within one week, the call-up for Australia first, and then a couple of days later I was lucky enough to be picked up by Kings XI Punjab. 

“I was very excited, but then as time passed, I started getting a little nervous. Once I start training in India with the guys and play a few games, the nerves will settle, and hopefully I will put up a few good performances for the side.”
