Ojha also thanked Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Harbhajan Singh and MS Dhoni for being supportive and backing him throughout his career.

Ojha was IPL's purple cap holder for taking highest wickets in a season. He played for Deccan Charges and Mumbai Indians. The Hyderabadi cricketer mentioned about Hyderabad Cricket Association for all the support.
