Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi And Mujeeb ur Rahman’s Participation In IPL 2021 Uncertain As Taliban Takes Over Afghanistan

Rashid Khan grew up in a war-torn Afghanistan and rose through the ranks. Ever since his debut IPL season in 2017, Rashid Khan has garnered all the right eyeballs owing to his mastery with the ball. The leg-spinner turned in a few memorable match-winning efforts in Sunrisers Hyderabad’s journey to the finals of the 2018 edition.

He took 21 wickets and emerged as the second-highest wicket-taker in that edition. Over the years he has been one of the most sought-after players in global franchise T20 leagues and with a wealth of experience, he is definitely a threat to the opposition. In IPL, he has picked 85 scalps in 69 games averaging 20.1 at an economy rate of 6.23. His economy rate is the best in IPL history, even better than Anil Kumble, Glenn McGrath, and Muttiah Muralitharan.

Rashid Khan’s Participation In Remainder Of IPL 2021 Uncertain As Taliban Takes Over Afghanistan

With the political situation taking a new turn in Afghanistan, uncertainty, and unpredictability is looming around the future of their top cricketers, especially Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi, as both of whom are due to compete in the remainder of the IPL in the UAE from September 19. The Taliban is set to take over the reins of the South Asian country as President Ashraf Ghani has reportedly fled to Tajikistan.

Rashid Khan is playing for Trent Rockets and Mohammed Nabi is representing London Spirits. The duo isn’t in Afghanistan. They are in the United Kingdom, competing in the ‘Hundred’ tournament.  The BCCI is keeping an eye on the developments and is hoping to see the participation of Afghan players in the India Premier League.

“It is too early to comment but we are keeping a watch. For us, nothing changes and we expect Rashid and other Afghan players would be part of IPL,” a BCCI source told PTI.

It remains to be seen if Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi stay back in the UK after completion of ‘The Hundred’ on August 21 as they have families back home. And if they decide to stay back in the UK, it will be interesting to see if the BCCI asks them to be on the same charter flight that will take the Indian players to the UAE from Manchester on September 15. Both Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi play for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The BCCI is expected to speak with the Afghanistan Cricket Board on the situation.

Afghanistan’s all-rounder and one of their most dependable players, Mohammad Nabi has been instrumental in Afghanistan’s rise through the ranks to the 2015 Cricket World Cup and their induction into the Test club. He is a right-hand middle-order batsman and a clever off-spinner who has often chipped in with critical performances for Afghanistan and for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi, And Mujeeb ur Rahman’s Participation In IPL 2021 When It Resumes Is Doubtful

As per ICC’s FTP schedule, Afghanistan is scheduled to tour Sri Lanka for six white-ball games this month but the final schedule is still not out yet. Rashid Khan is also Afghanistan’s T20 captain.

Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi, and Mujeeb-ur Rahman are some of the Afghanistan players who are regular features in IPL teams. Rashid Khan is one of the most sought-after T20 freelancers in world cricket currently. Both Mohammed Nabi and Rashid Khan have urged the world leaders to intervene as Afghanistan faces its worst socio-political crisis in the last two decades.

“Dear World Leaders! My country is in chaos, thousand of innocent people, including children & women, get martyred everyday, houses & properties being destructed. Thousands of families displaced. Don’t leave us in chaos. Stop killing Afghans & destroying of Afghanistan. We want peace,” Rashid had tweeted a few days back.

Afghanistan’s Mujeeb-ur Rahman had taken IPL 2018 by storm on his way to picking 14 wickets in 11 matches at under 7 runs an over. He also became a part of Afghanistan’s first-ever Test match against India in 2018, following a superb season with the ball.

He didn’t have a memorable 2019 and 2020  season as he picked up only three wickets from a total of seven games in two years. After being part of Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), Mujeeb-ur Rahman would have gained some much-needed experience and will be looking to make the most of his outing in 2021 with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

India vs Sri Lanka 2021: If Top 3 Batsmen Fire, India Can Seal Win – Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra, a former opener turned commentator feels that while Sri Lanka has a definite advantage going into the deciding T20I, Team India can still triumph if the top 3 in their batting line-up rise to the occasion.

Team India and Sri Lanka will meet in the deciding T20I on Thursday after the hosts defeated a weak Indian outfit in the second game on Wednesday. The visitors were forced to play with just five batsmen, with others put in isolation after all-rounder Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday ruling 9 players out from the last 2 T20Is.

Aakash Chopra: India Is Weak In The Batting Department But Can Win If Their Top 3 Batsmen Fire

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra admitted that it will be a tough task for Team India to beat Sri Lanka considering the lack of depth in their batting.

Aakash Chopra stated: “Due to the extraordinary circumstances, Team India are weak in the batting. If you look at the batting line-up available for Team India, Shikhar Dhawan has Ruturaj Gaikwad as opening partner followed by Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson, Nitish Rana and then Bhuvneshwar Kumar.”

Speaking about the lack of genuine batsmen in the starting XI in the 2nd T20I, Aakash Chopra went on to say that this is not really a batting line-up as it’s not yet proven and cannot be expected to win matches immediately.

Aakash Chopra said; “That’s not really a batting lineup. There is no depth in it. Yes, there is quality but it is not proven. These youngsters have only just entered international cricket. You cannot expect them to win matches immediately. Of course, we need to be hopeful but Sri Lanka definitely have the edge now.”

Aakash Chopra, however, added that all is not lost for Team India. Giving the example of Sunrisers Hyderabad, he pointed out that T20 games can be won with a solid top 3.

Aakash Chopra elaborated: “I am sure what Rahul (Dravid) will be telling everyone is that in T20 matches, if the top 3 perform well, then you don’t need a lot from those batting at 5,6 and 7.”

Aakash Chopra talked about how Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, and Kane Williamson helped the Sunrisers Hyderabad win matches in the IPL in the past, despite having a fragile lower-middle order.

“Take the case of Sunrisers Hyderabad. When Dhawan was playing for them, the top three – Dhawan, David Warner and Kane Williamson – mostly did the job for them. If Team India score 150 batting first, they can still beat Sri Lanka. The visitors will bat if they win the toss. And if they lose, the Lankans are going to send Team India into bat.”

India named 4 T20I debutants in Nitish Rana, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Chetan Sakariya for the 2nd T20I match. While debutants-opener Ruturaj Gaikwad perished after making an 18-ball 21, Devdutt Padikkal, who walked in at number three, departed after making a quick-fire 29 off 23 balls as India lost the match by four wickets.

Put into bat, India was restricted to a modest 132 for 5 with skipper Shikhar Dhawan top-scoring with 40. The hosts then chased down the target with four wickets in hand and two balls to spare with Dhananjaya de Silva hitting a match-winning unbeaten 40.

Shikhar Dhawan Is Proud Of Young Squad Despite Suffering Loss

Reflecting on the loss in the 2nd T20I, Team India skipper Shikhar Dhawan admitted that the side did not put up enough runs on the board. He, however, praised the young side for putting up a tough fight and making life difficult for Sri Lanka.

Shikhar Dhawan said at the post-match conference: “The surface had turn, and it was stopping a bit. Of course, we knew one batsman was short, and we knew we had to construct the innings smartly, and we had to content ourselves at some point. We were 10-15 runs short.”

Shikhar Dhawan credited the fighting attitude of his young team.

He said: “However, I am very proud of the boys because we gave a very good fight. That never-say-die attitude is amazing. Hats off to the boys for taking the game to the last game over defending just 132. Credit to both bowlers and batters.”

Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Yuzvendra Chahal, K Gowtham, and Deepak Chahar are the eight players identified as close contacts of Krunal Pandya, who tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday. Although all eight have tested negative for the virus, they have still been ruled out of the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka vs India 2021: Manish Pandey Could Have Finished The Game Off, Says Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra has weighed in on Manish Pandey’s selection debate ahead of 2nd ODI between Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India side and hosts Sri Lanka.

Premier batsman Manish Pandey didn’t have the best of the starts in the series opener of the ongoing One Day Internationals (ODI) between India and Sri Lanka at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

Aakash Chopra: Manish Pandey Could Have Finished The 1st ODI Off But Instead He Threw It Away In The End

Manish Pandey, who has been a seasoned campaigner for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has failed to cement his place in the white-ball squad of Team India. In the Sri Lanka series, India is fielding a young promising squad, many expected Manish Pandey to showcase his talent in the absence of regular starters.

Manish Pandey made a cautious start in the 1st ODI of the three-match series against Sri Lanka but the premier batsman failed to accelerate his innings during India’s comfortable chase of 263 at the R.Premadasa Stadium. While Pandey’s critics have cast a doubt over his selection in the upcoming games, former cricketer Aakash Chopra has opted to throw his weight behind the Indian batsman.

The former Team India opener and full-time cricket pundit Aakash Chopra presented his analysis on ESPNCricinfo’s Match Day show in the build-up to the 2nd ODI. Discussing India’s possible playing combination for the series decider, Aakash Chopra highlighted the fact that Manish Pandey should have finished the run chase with Shikhar Dhawan in the 1st ODI on Sunday.

“Manish Pandey could have finished the game off. He just threw it away in the end. But you can’t penalize him for just one bad shot in a game that got over with 15 overs to spare. So, no changes for Team India,” Aakash Chopra said.

Manish Pandey struck a four and six in his sedate knock of 26 against Sri Lanka. Manish Pandey’s 40-ball 26 knock ended in the 31st over as the premier batsman was removed by Dhananjaya de Silva.

Shikhar Dhawan Hits Unbeaten 86 As India Wins The 1st ODI, While India Remain Unchanged In The 2nd ODI

Middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav then joined forces with Shikhar Dhawan to help India thrash Sri Lanka by 7 wickets. Shikhar Dhawan (86) and Suryakumar Yadav (31) remained unbeaten to make sure India enter the 2nd ODI with a 1-0 lead on Tuesday at the same venue.

A near-flawless performance in the first ODI saw the Indian cricket team kick off the tour of Sri Lanka with a 7-wicket win in the first ODI. Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav shone with the bat while Kuldeep Yadav looked in fine touch with the ball. Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey, however, couldn’t seize the opportunity.

Shikhar Dhawan scored a half-century (86 off 95) in the first ODI while Prithvi Shaw (43 off 24) gave India a blazing start at the top and earned himself the Man of the Match title. Ishan Kishan, coming in to bat at No. 3, started off his innings with a six and scored 59 off 42 before being dismissed by Lakshan Sandakan. Manish Pandey, however, left plenty to desire as he only scored 26 off 40 balls in what was otherwise a free-flowing contest.

Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka won the toss and elected to bat against India in the second ODI. India is fielding an unchanged playing XI, while pacer Kasun Rajitha comes in for fast bowler Isuru Udana in the Sri Lankan XI.

Rashid Khan Reveals That He Has Spent Just 25 Days At Home In The Last 5 Years

Rashid Khan plies his trade in several major T20 competitions worldwide. 22 years old Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan is already arguably the most sought out T20 bowler going around.

The talismanic leg-spinner has been instrumental in the rise of Afghanistan cricket. Rashid Khan just doesn’t tend to restrict the run flow but also picks up wickets at regular intervals. In fact, the leggie has shown his prowess in many prominent T20 leagues worldwide.

Rashid Khan Reveals That He Has Spent Just 25 Days At Home In The Last 5 Years Due To Commitments In The Global T20 Leagues

Although Rashid Khan is a global star now, his road to glory hasn’t been easy by any means. The star cricketer had to make tough significant sacrifices to pursue his dreams. The biggest of them is being away from his family. With Rashid Khan playing his trade in international cricket, IPL, BBL, CPL, and PSL, he hardly gets any free time. In fact, he has spent just 25 days at home in the last five years.

“In the last five years I’ve spent about 25 days at home. I didn’t have that opportunity to celebrate my achievement with the family because I was just so busy. I forgot my achievements and that hurts sometimes. I don’t get enough time to be with the family, but at the same time it is the start of my career so I have to struggle,” Rashid told Guardian.co.uk.

Rashid Khan made his One-day International debut for Afghanistan against Zimbabwe in October 2015 and has become an indispensable part of the national team. The 22-year-old leg-spinner has so far played in five Tests, picking 34 wickets, while in 74 ODIs he took 140 wickets. In the T20 Internationals, he has scalped 95 wickets from 51 outings.

It seems odd to call someone a veteran at 22 years but Rashid Khan is sort of in T20 cricket having played 266 matches in the format spread across IPL, BBL, PSL, CPL, Afghanistan, and more.

Rashid Khan Regrets Not To Play An International Match In His Country Afghanistan

It’s a known fact that Rashid Khan takes a lot of pride in representing Afghanistan. However, the youngster is yet to play an international game at home and he regrets it. The Sunrisers Hyderabad star also opined that people will come in large numbers when his country Afghanistan hosts an international game.

“Wherever I go I see international players playing at home in front of their crowds, getting the support, getting all the love; we so much want the same in our country. Our people, they love cricket, they love sport and the moment we have a series back home it will be massive. There will be no single spot to sit,” says Rashid.

Meanwhile, Rashid Khan must gear up to unleash his A-game with the ICC T20 World Cup being months away. The tournament will get underway in October in UAE. Although many are not backing Afghanistan to go far, Rashid Khan would be raring to defy the odds.

Ever since his debut IPL season in 2017, the leg spinner has garnered all the right eyeballs owing to his mastery with the ball. The leg-spinner turned in a few memorable match-winning efforts in SRH’s journey to the finals of the 2018 edition. He took 21 wickets and emerged as the second-highest wicket-taker in that edition. He has 85 scalps in 69 IPL games averaging a mere 20.1 at an economic rate of 6.24-the lowest economy rate ever in IPL history.

He has been SRH’s standout bowler over the last few seasons of the IPL. The Afghanistan leg-spinner has grabbed 10 wickets in 7 games in IPL 2021 at an impressive average of 17.20 and a splendid economy rate of 6.14.

It Will Be Beneficial For The Team If The 6 Uncapped Players Carry The Confidence Of IPL In The Sri Lanka Series, Says Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, tour vice-captain says it is not the case as the entire lot of six uncapped players in the squad make it seem that India has come with an inexperienced group for the white-ball series against Sri Lanka has the requisite confidence thanks to IPL.

With major stars like skipper Virat Kohli and his limited-overs deputy Rohit Sharma in England for an upcoming Test series, the Indian team for series against Sri Lanka is being led by opener Shikhar Dhawan and features half a dozen uncapped players.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: It Will Be Beneficial For The Team If The 6 Uncapped Players Carry The Confidence Of IPL In The Sri Lanka Series

Many of the youngsters impressed in the suspended Indian Premier League 2021 and have been rewarded with their maiden India call-up. They include opening batsman Devdutt Padikkal, pacer Chetan Sakaria, middle-order batsman Nitish Rana, all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham, opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, and spinner Varun Chakravarthy.

“We have good players and they have experience of IPL, they are young but they have experience of IPL, playing T20 for so many years and they have done well for their teams,” Bhuvneshwar Kumar said on the Star Sport show ‘Follow the Blues.’

“So, it will be beneficial for the team that they will carry the confidence of IPL and they are young and talented, there is a good mix with the experienced players and this will be a good tour. Young players who have come for their first tour and came after doing well in IPL so if they do well here then it will be great for their confidence,” Bhuvneshwar Kumar added.

Nitish Rana, Devdutt Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad, Krishnappa Gautam, Varun Chakravarthy, and Chetan Sakariya have never played for Team India before.  Out of these six, Varun Chakravarthy is the only player who has been selected in Team India before, but due to fitness issues, he could not play for Team India.

Krishnappa Gowtham, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaekwad have impressed with their performances in the last two IPL seasons, while Nitish Rana has been in great form over the years. Chetan Sakariya’s name is a bit surprising but the 23-year-old has impressed a lot with his bowling in IPL 2021.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s Focus Was To Make A Comeback By Playing Domestic Cricket Before The England Series

The senior pacer had suffered a thigh muscle injury during last year’s IPL which ruled him out of the league as well as the tour of Australia. The bowler made a return to the national squad after a long injury lay-off in the limited-overs home series against England in March. He said playing domestic cricket helped him stay motivated.

“When I was almost recovered, domestic cricket was going on as well. So my focus was to get fit and make a comeback and then I started the preparation for the match,” he said.

“Before the England series, I played domestic cricket, so that it helps me get the required match practice. One shouldn’t take things lightly while playing domestic cricket and that kept me motivated to play for India and to stay fit,” he added.

The India-Sri Lanka series, which was originally slated, to begin with, the three ODIs on July 13, had to be rescheduled after the home team’s batting coach Grant Flower and data analyst G T Niroshan tested positive for the dreaded virus on their return from the UK tour. The engagement, which comprises three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals, will now start from July 18.

Rashid Khan Expressed Desire To Bowl To Retired Sachin Tendulkar Again

Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s spin sensation has expressed his desire to bowl to the Master Blaster someday. Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar continues to be a source of inspiration for players of the present generation.

While several were lucky to share the field with the batting maestro, others who missed the privilege often wish to have that opportunity sometime in their lifetime.’

Rashid Khan: It Would Be A Huge Pleasure To Bowl To Someone Like Retired Batting Legend Sachin Tendulkar

During a recent interaction with Crickwick on YouTube, Rashid Khan was replying to a specific question about Sachin Tendulkar losing his wicket to leg-spinner just once during the last 13 years of his limited-overs career. In response, Rashid Khan said that’s the reason why he wants to bowl to him as he (Sachin Tendulkar) hardly loses his wicket to leg-spinners.

The leggie added that “more than getting him out, it would be a huge pleasure to bowl to someone like Tendulkar.”

He further reiterated that picking his wicket is a “different thing”, but it would be a “dream come true” to just bowl to the legendary cricketer. During the interview, he also spoke about his style and said, as a spinner one needs to have an idea of the kind of deliveries they need to “bowl to a particular batsman”.

Rashid Khan Will Be Seen In Action In The Pakistan Super League Next

Rashid Khan further explained that every batsman plays his “deliveries differently” and that led him to “study really hard” on how or where to bowl at them. Rashid Khan also recalled bowling to former Pakistan great Inzamam-ul-Haq and considered it to be a huge moment for him.

Rashid Khan made his One-day International debut for Afghanistan against Zimbabwe in October 2015 and has become an indispensable part of the national team. The 22-year-old leg-spinner has so far played in five Tests, picking 34 wickets, while in 74 ODIs he took 140 wickets. In the T20 Internationals, he has scalped 85 wickets from 51 outings.

The spin sensation — who is one of the most wanted players for the T20 franchises across the globe –will be next seen in action in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Rashid Khan, who plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League, is set to turn out for Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League. Ever since his debut IPL season in 2017, Rashid Khan has garnered all the right eyeballs owing to his mastery with the ball.

The leg-spinner turned in a few memorable match-winning efforts in SRH’s journey to the finals of the 2018 edition. He took 21 wickets and emerged as the second-highest wicket-taker in that edition.

Rashid Khan Declines T20I Captaincy As He Believes He Is “Better Off As A Player”

Rashid Khan has declined to captain the Afghanistan T20 side fearing it might affect his performance as a player which he feels is more crucial to the team.

Afghanistan has been changing captains frequently and earlier this week named Hashmatullah Shahidi as their Test and ODI skipper. Hashmatullah Shahidi is set to lead the team in ODI and Test cricket, with Rahmat Shah as his deputy in both formats.

Rashid Khan Is Better Off As A Player And Is Happy To Remain Vice-Captain

However, the Afghanistan Cricket Board is yet to name the T20 captain.

“I am very much clear in my mind that I am better off as a player. I am good in the role as vice-captain and help the captain wherever I am needed. It’s better for me that I stay away from this position,” Rashid told ‘ESPNcricinfo’.

“I want to do well for the team as a player and my performance is a bit more crucial for the team rather than me thinking about different things being a captain.”

Rashid Khan has captained Afghanistan in 2 Tests and under him, Afghanistan won the Test against Bangladesh. He has also captained the national team in 7 ODIs and 7 T20Is and Afghanistan won 1 ODI and 4 T20Is under his captaincy. Asghar Afghan is Afghanistan’s most successful limited-overs skipper winning 33 ODIs out of 58 and 39 T20Is out of 49. He also led in 4 Tests and Afghanistan won 2 and lost 2.

Rashid Khan Focusing On Forthcoming T20 World Cup And Is Afraid Captaincy Might Affect His Performance

With the T20 World Cup around the corner, Rashid Khan feels he is better off focussing on what he does best.

“Also, it takes time, and right now the most important thing is the World Cup which is quite near and I feel it is too much for me to have. I am afraid it might affect my performance for the team which is a key so I am very happy as a player and whatever the decision board and selection committee make I am fully behind it and will appreciate it.”

“If you have a year or two, you manage yourself and understand things only then it’s easier to deal with the role. I was the captain once and they [board] know my mindset and which is why they kept the spot empty looking for someone else while I stay as a vice-captain,” said one of the best spinners in limited-overs cricket.

Rashid Khan, who plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League, is set to turn out for Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League. Ever since his debut IPL season in 2017, Rashid Khan has garnered all the right eyeballs owing to his mastery with the ball.

The leg-spinner turned in a few memorable match-winning efforts in SRH’s journey to the finals the 2018 edition. He took 21 wickets and emerged as the second-highest wicket-taker in that edition. He has 85 scalps in 69 IPL games averaging a mere 20.1 at an economic rate of 6.23-the lowest economy rate ever in IPL history.

Afghanistan T20I vice-captain Rashid Khan said that it was Asghar Afghan’s captaincy that has led Afghanistan to where it is today. Rashid Khan’s comment comes just one day after Asghar Afghan was removed as Afghanistan’s ODI and Test skipper.

However, Asghar Afghan’s removal as the national team’s captain comes after the Afghanistan Cricket Board’s investigation committee’s report concluded that some of his decision led to the team’s loss against Zimbabwe earlier this year in the UAE.

Zimbabwe went on to win the 1st Test by 10 wickets inside two days to hand Afghanistan an embarrassing defeat. However, Afghanistan came back strongly in the second Test to level the series 1-1.

Priyam Garg Praised Rahul Dravid For Helping Him To Improve His Batting Skills

Priyam Garg has lauded Rahul Dravid for the major role the Indian legend has played in shaping his batting. Rahul Dravid was earlier the U-19 and India A coach before he took over as the head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Priyam Garg is among the young lot of cricketers who are lucky enough to have been mentored by Rahul Dravid.

Priyam Garg: Rahul Dravid’s Inputs Were Of Great Help

Captain of the India U19 2020 World Cup, young Priyam Garg led the team to the finals of the tournament. Known to be a gutsy batsman springing up valuable performances in India’s U19 campaign, he was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for 1.9 crores. He played 14 games in his debut IPL season in 2020 and scored one half-century.

In an interview with India TV, the 20-year-old acknowledged Rahul Dravid’s contribution to his growth as a cricketer, saying: “Definitely (his inputs were of great help). Rahul Dravid is a very big player and he is also a very good person. He always helps you, whether you are on the field or off it. He always keeps giving suggestions over what is good for you.”

Priyam Garg added that Rahul Dravid’s guidance was all the more significant when he played in overseas conditions.

The youngster revealed: “When I went with him to England and South Africa, he shared his experience with me, which helped me a lot. He explained to me how to deal with the conditions, how to bat on those wickets, tackle the bowlers and deal with the various challenges. It really helped my batting a lot on those surfaces.”

Priyam Garg captained the Indian U-19 squad during the 2020 World Cup in South Africa.

Priyam Garg: Kartik Tyagi Is A Very Hardworking Cricketer

Although it has been a while since the event ended, the 20-year-old revealed that the batch that took part in last year’s event is still very much in touch. He added that he has a good bond with pacer Kartik Tyagi, as they have played a lot together.

Priyam Garg explained: “For the last two years, I and Kartik Tyagi have been playing a lot together. Our U-19 batch is still in touch with each other. We keep talking to each other. We all know about the potential that Karik Tyagi has. He is a very hardworking cricketer. I have been seeing him for the last 6-7 years and he is really focused on his career.”

Priyam Garg represented Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in 14 matches in IPL 2020 but only managed 133 runs with one half-century. He did not get a game in IPL 2021 until the tournament was suspended earlier this month after COVID-19 cases entered the bubble.

Kartik Tyagi picked up 11 wickets during India’s run to the final of the U19 WC 2020. The right-arm pacer impressed one and all with his ability to move the ball around at a good pace during the tournament.

Rajasthan Royals bought him for INR 1.30 crores during the IPL 2020 Player Auction and he went on to pick 9 wickets in his first season of the tournament. The right-arm pacer has since traveled to Australia as a net bowler with the Indian team. He picked a solitary game in IPL 2021 and picked a wicket.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) had a nightmare first half of the IPL 2021 as they lie on the bottom 8th spot of the points table with just one win from seven matches. The SRH team did so badly that the management comprising of coach Trevor Bayliss, director of cricket Tom Moody, mentor VVS Laxman, and bowling coach Muttiah Muralitharan took the decision to strip captaincy from Australia’s David Warner and made Kane Williamson the new captain.

Siddharth Kaul Wants His Name Included In Limited-Overs Sri Lanka Tour

Siddarth Kaul, the 31-year-old Indian pacer who played 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is might be out of contention at the moment for making it into the India squad, but the upcoming Sri Lanka tour may open up the door for him. The limited-overs series will see three ODIs and three T20Is starting from July 13th. At the same time, India will be involved in the five-match Test series against England.

This means a relatively inexperienced India squad, comprising of fringe players who are not travelling to England, will be making their way to Sri Lanka.

Siddharth Kaul Want To Get Into The Squad For Sri Lanka Limited Overs

Siddharth Kaul wants his name to be included in the team. He picked 4 wickets from 6 international games, the last of which came in 2019.

“Definitely, I want to get into the Sri Lanka squad. Because I am preparing myself, and I am performing in domestic cricket. India A I haven’t played since 2019; they did not select me after that. But I have performed in the domestic circuit. Even in four-day cricket, I was the highest wicket-taker for Punjab,” Siddharth Kaul told Sportskeeda.

“I wasn’t in the Indian team because of anyone’s backing. I have been there because of my performances, and I am proud of that. I will keep on banging the door with my performances till it doesn’t break,” he further added.

“If it doesn’t break, it means I was destined to play only this much. But till the time I can, I will give it my all. Getting a chance or not depends on the Almighty. Some people get many chances, while some don’t get as many despite performing consistently. I am waiting for the opportunity, and (it it comes) I will grab it with both hands and give my 110%,” Kaul added.

He further went on to a piece of advice given to him by veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.

“My parents, coaches, and every big player who has been associated with me have told me, ‘When you give your 110% on the ground, you are something else. Keep on doing that’. Harbhajan Singh told me this during 2011-12. He was making a comeback into the Indian team, so he had to come to play domestic cricket and captained Punjab. That’s the advice I have been following since then,” he said.

“My father is my coach and my brother, who has kept wickets in so many matches, has told me similar things. Ashish Nehra is my mentor. and I learn a lot of skills from him. When these players see you and play with you, their assessment can never be wrong,” he signed off.

Siddharth Kaul’s first major international tournament was the 2008 Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia and he played a vital part in India’s victory with his accurate line and length, which brought him ten wickets at an average of 15.40.

Siddharth Kaul Has Been A Regular Member Of Sunrisers Hyderabad Since 2016-17

A spate of injuries, however, meant his career went downhill. Between December 2007 and February 2012, he played all of six domestic matches across formats. In the year 2012, he showed glimpses of improved form and fitness, picking up 38 wickets in 13 matches. He found his rhythm the following season, drawing inspiration from Yuvraj Singh. His hit-the-deck bustle proved the ideal foil for Sandeep Sharma’s swing as Punjab’s attack prospered.

The rejuvenated Siddharth Kaul was signed up by Delhi Daredevils in 2013 but had an ordinary stint with them. He then joined his Punjab team-mate, Yuvraj Singh, at Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2016 IPL.

Siddharth Kaul has represented the Kolkata Knight Riders, and Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in the past but has been a regular member in the Sunrisers squad since 2017. He made his ODI & T20I debuts for India in 2018. He picked 54 scalps in 49 IPL games averaging 28.5.
