India fast bowler Mohit Sharma says he has been working on his death bowling and hopes to become a cemented member of the Chennai Super Kings and India bowling attacks.

Mohit was the leading wicket taker in the Indian Premier League this year, a very effective bowler at the death, and he is keen to improve upon that at the Champions LEague T20 and beyond.

Mohit told the Times of India: "I have been working on my death bowling. It's very difficult to do well all the time especially in T20s as the format generally helps the batsmen.

"I have been given a particular role by my captain and I try to shoulder the responsibility with confidence."

Mohit played in two games on the recent tour to England, and aside from that, has been doing well with India A, and he hoped those experiences would stand him in good stead for the rest of the year, up to the World Cup.

He said: "I have been to South Africa, New Zealand, Australia (with India A) and England. It's been a great learning curve for me. I played two ODIs against England and enjoyed bowling in English conditions but was unlucky to get injured in the second match."

He continued about the upcoming event: "I don't know whether I have sealed my place in the final XI but yes, I have played all the matches last year and will be glad if I get more chances.

"It's a matter of pride for me to play for CSK and I'll be ready whenever the team management asks for it.

"I have always dreamt of playing for CSK and I am lucky to be a part of one of the best T20 sides in the world and whenever I contributed in CSK's win, it bring a lot happiness.

"I have another opportunity now to prove my ability and looking forward to have a great CLT20."
