Diminutive Gujarat wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel found a rather funny way to troll his own height. Patel tweeted an image of Dosa and said, “even the dosa is taller than me.”
In the last Ranji match against Madhya Pradesh Parthiv Patel scored 19 and 10. Currently, he is in his home city Ahmadabad.
The wicketkeeper-batsman will play his next game for Gujarat against Tamil Nadu at Chennai.
Patel, 30, played 20 Tests and 30 ODIs for India. The baby-faced wicketkeeper burst into the Indian team at the age of 17. He made his debut against England at Nottingham.
He played as a makeshift wicketkeeper for India. At a time when India did not have any specialist wicket keeper, Parthiv Patel was the man who kept the wickets.
He last played for India in 2008 against Sri Lanka at P. Sara Oval, Colombo.
Parthiv’s highest Test score was 69 against Pakistan at Rawalpindi. Parthiv after his ODI debut in 2003 played consistently for India till 2004. His best performance was observed against Pakistan in Pakistan soil. The left-handed batsman scored 62 at Lahore, 69 at Rawalpindi in two consecutive Tests.
Parthiv made his ODI debut in New Zealand at Queenstown in 2003. But after the emergence of Dinesh Karthik Parthiv chance in the team squeezed. However, he was called back in the in 2010. His best performance came against England at Chester-le-Street where he scored 95.
The most adorable moment for cricket fans is Patel sledging Steve Waugh from behind the wicket. Waugh hit back at Parthiv by saying him to pay respect as he was in a nappy when the great Australian captain made his debut in international cricket in 1985.
