Having moved states domestically from New South Wales to Tasmania, Australian fast bowler Gurinder Sandhu has called it the "toughest decision of my life" and is hoping something really fruitful will come out with his new association. Sandhu, who made his debut for NSW Blues with a list A game against Western Australia in 2013 and played for another 50 times for them, has called the move to Hobart as an "unbelievably tough" one to make. 

Talking to Cricket.com.au, Sandhu was quoted saying, "Toughest decision I've had to make so far in my life, Sydney is where I grew up and the dream growing up was obviously to represent your country but to also represent NSW. It was a dream come true when that happened six years ago."

"Being there for six, seven years and you've made a lot of friends in the squad, outside in grade cricket, your family, people that you went to school with – to leave that all behind was very tough. But sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do," he added. 

Sandhu, who has played 2 ODIs for Australia, is now looking forward to having a bright future with Tasmania and said, "I want to play as much cricket as I can for Tasmania, They had a really, really good year last year so it will be tough to crack into that (Shield) team. I'm not just going to be walking into that team."

"I'm going to have to work hard and perform in whatever cricket I play, whether it be grade cricket, 2nd XI, JLT Cup, whatever it is. I'm going to have to perform, show what I can do and put my name forward." he concluded.
