Valthaty was an unknown face before IPL 4, but he became an overnight star after his heroics in the T20 league where he scored 463 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 136.9 and the 28-year-old cricketer said he will try to repeat his performance this year too.

Basically from Mumbai, Valthaty, said he wants to demonstrate his batting skills and take his team to semi finals.

“It’s not about big hitting alone. There is scope of playing good cricketing shots during IPL as well and I am capable of doing that. My focus will be to play good knocks and our first target is semifinals. After that the contest will be wide open for every team,” he said. Desperate to play for India, Valthaty also feels that IPL is a huge platform for youngsters like him to catch the attention of the selectors.
