861 runs in 6 matches, captain made at an early age, now Kohli will shine his name in England with army
In the Indian cricket team, in the last 6 months, many new players have got the opportunity to show their own. The series started from Australia tour, continued till the domestic ODI series against England. Now once again, Team India is getting ready for its international journey and then the expectations of some new faces have increased. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday 7 May announced a 24-member squad for Team India's 4-month tour of England. In this, 20 players are part of the main team, while 4 in standby. One of these four is 25-year-old Abhimanyu Easwaran, who has got the opportunity to join Team India for the second time in a row. So who is this Abhimanyu?
In domestic cricket, the member of Bengal Ranji Team (Bengal Ranji Team) and the captain of the age of 23, Abhimanyu is the opener. Abhimanyu's name is not very old in Indian cricket, but in the last 2-3 years, much discussion has come up. Right-handed batsman Abhimanyu has earned a name for his durable innings in the long format. This is the reason that despite the presence of many veterans, he was made the captain of the team at the age of 23.
Excellent technique opener, runs rained a lot
Abhimanyu is being taken as a standby opener in the Indian team. There is also a special reason for choosing this batsman, ignoring the bustling opener like Prithvi Shaw. Ishwaran's better technique as an opener makes him stronger for this responsibility. Also, his performance at this position has also been excellent.
The Bengal batsman has played 64 first class matches so far, in which 4401 runs have been scored with his bat. During this time, his average has been more than 43, while he has also scored 13 centuries and 18 half-centuries.
861 runs in 6 matches
In the last few seasons, he has done very well for the team from Ranji Trophy to Vijay Hazare Trophy. He was the highest run-scorer for Bengal in the 2018-19 Ranji season. He hit 861 runs in only 6 matches. During this time, his average was more than 95 and 3 centuries came out of his bat. Since then, he has been considered a contender for a place in Team India.
Chance for the second time in a row - Will there be an entry this time?
Even though he has not got a direct entry into the team, but he has been selected as a standby for the second consecutive series. Earlier, he was also a standby batsman in the Test series against England in February-March. Team India however already has three major openers - Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal. Of these, Agarwal will have to wait for his turn, but spending time in the nets to practice matches with the team's veterans for almost 4 months will open the doors of the team for them in the coming times.
