Brainder Singh Sran may have been the biggest surprise in the India’s one-day international squad that will be touring Australia in January. The left-arm fast bowler, who has already scalped 14 wickets from his six matches in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy with Punjab, started his playing career as one of the country’s most promising boxers. And after his name was announced in the national squad the childhood coach of Brainder Singh, Jagdish Singh also a Dronacharya awardee and the first teacher of ace Indian boxer, Vijender Singh, lamented sayi8ng that he still believes Brainder Singh could have been another Vijender if he had not quit boxing and joined cricket.

Brainder Singh had joined famous Bhiwani Boxing Club under the coaching of Jagdish Singh in 2009 and he left the club next year to join a cricketing talent scout programme, organized by the Kings Eleven Punjab in Mohali. Brainder also commented on Saturday that he had left Bhiwani even without informing his Jagdish sir that he would leave boxing and join cricket.

 

And Jagdish Singh speaking on the issue on Saturday, said, “I was amazed and angry also after having found that Brainder had left BBC (Bhiwani Boxing Club) and joined the cricket camp. After that, I even did not speak to him out of frustration and anger. But, today I feel it is truly good news for Punjab and the country that this lad has made Punjab proud by getting into the Indian squad for Australia tour.” The 23-year old fast bowler has also stated that he would be going to his Jagdish sir after the end of Vijay Hazare Trophy to improve his fitness.
