Not getting selected by any franchise in the IPL seemed to have boosted Mulani to execute his best in Col C.K Nayudu Trophy. Mulani shared with TOI, "It's hard, but I have to do my job. Selection is not in my control and I'm just trying to do what I can do, that is picking up wickets and scoring runs. I don't think about ifs and buts, I just want to enjoy my cricket."
