Pankaj's candid observations certainly make him a fast bowler with brains. Pankaj is particularly excited about the talent of his fast bowling colleagues.

a) How do you asses the status of your bowling this season?
As far as status of bowling is concerned the start has been good. I am feeling really fit and enjoying the bowling.

b) You also played Duleep Trophy, did it help you?
Playing such big matches at the start of the season was a good experience, it helped in boosting confidence before the season and the performance in those matches has been a booster for the entire season. Bowling against good batsmen helped in bringing the momentum back for the season.

c) How important is this season for you because India has a big Test season?
As a player every season is important and it is very important to perform in these matches as you get recognition from these matches as selectors are their keeping an eye on every performance in each match and this is a scenario, which opens the doors for representing India as we have a long Test season for Team India.

d) How do you look at your pace bowling partners for this season?
Rajasthan Bowling attack (pace) has been very good throughout and with the partners like Aniket, Deepak and Nathu, it becomes very intresting to bowl when u get support from the other end. Nathu has been grooming, into a good partner, and Aniket has been performing very well from quite a long time. Its fun bowling with such partners and this gets the best out of you even.

e) Can Rajasthan once again win the Ranji Trophy title this season?
Very early to say. We are focussing on the one match at a time and trying to get the best out of everyone during the match. We as a unit are a group comprising of experience and enthusiasm. The younger partners are ready to deliver whenever needed and senior ones are guiding them through the situations. Young guns like Mahipal are delvering their best in the matches and seniors are also supporting them.
