He continued: "Nish is an interesting character – slightly unconventional, and with that brings drama, and mayhem.
"I think there’s a good man under there but turmoil follows these guys [the Panesar’s] around so I'm excited to join in and set off a few more explosions and fireworks."

"He brings something to the character that none of us could’ve predicted.
