If anyone would have told me before the game what my figures would have been I would have taken it. I am happy with the performance and the guys played really well," Morris, who picked up two wickets against Kings XI Punjab on debut on Wednesday, told <em>iplt20.com</em><br /> <br /> Morris also spoke about the packed stadium in <a href="/tags/Mohali/post" target="_blank">Mohali</a> and said, " Unbelievable! The crowds are absolutely insane and [I am] loving it. I have never waved so much at a crowd in my life"<br /> <br /> Looking back at his performance, Morris spoke about the plan he had set for the dangerous Azhar Mahmood who was his first scalp in the tournament.<br /> <br /> "It was unbelievable to get the first. I knew he was going to have a go. I thought I would take the pace off (the ball) and fortunately it worked for me and because he is quite a dangerous player. I am very happy that my plans worked," he said.<br /> <br /> About the build up to his debut, he spoke of his nervousness and excitement.<br /> <br /> "I found out on Tuesday [that I was going to play]. I had a bit of a run on with the team and Stephan Fleming came to me and said we need you in this role. Then I had a rough night’s sleep and got it together this morning. But yes very exciting. I left my bag at the hotel so quite nervy but very, very happy with the result," he said.<br /> <br /> Morris also praised the environment in the CSK dressing room and said, "Coming into the team I know the fitness trainer very well and I also know couple of other players as well. It’s quite a family environment and they are close knit. The last day and half has been unbelievable. They are very nice guys, very welcoming and have an unbelievable team spirit."<br /> <br /> "God, I am rubbing shoulders with some of the greatest players that have played the game. I am still a youngster and enjoying every second of it," he gushed.<br /> <br /> Morris also had a few words of praise for his captain <a href="/tags/MS-Dhoni/post" target="_blank">MS Dhoni</a>.<br /> <br /> "He [MS Dhoni] is very, very different. He is very calm and laid back. Unbelievable, there are some good ideas and lot of responsibility on the bowlers," he said.<br /> <br /> The youngster, who is in India for the first time vowed to get used to the conditions and get better with time.<br /> <br /> "There is not as much bounce as South Africa and that I have to get used to, but I will work in practice and every single game and I will get better."
