He amassed 2,232 runs for Karnataka, but still continues to find himself away from the Indian set up. Talking to <em>Times Of India</em>, Agarwal said: "For me as a player, one of the targets would be to succeed in this year's IPL. I don't want to be called a one-season wonder. You want to get better with every season. I don't want anyone to point fingers at me and say that he didn't perform after one season." <p></p> <p></p>He went to speak about his new role for Kings XI Punjab (<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/KXIP">KXIP</a>). He said: "My aim is to add value to the side, and it doesn't only have to be as an opener. If playing in the middle-order helps the team, so be it. Cricket is not an individual sport, it is a team sport. The team management decides what the role of a player should be; and, at the end of the day, as a player you have to go out there and perform. <p></p> <p></p>Agarwal seemed excited about working with "favourite player" <a href="www.cricketcountry.com/players/virender-sehwag">Virender Sehwag</a>. He said: "He (Sehwag) is my favourite cricketer. As a kid, I was always fascinated by the way he took the attack to the opposition and the way he dominated. What I would like to learn from him (Sehwag) is his mindset while tackling various situations.
