India had the leading run-scorer and leading wicket-taker from the Under-19 World Cup in their side. Ravi Bishnoi was another star that emerged and created headlines. Match after match, the leg-spinner gave India vital breakthroughs and even bowled some match-winning spells. He was the one leading India’s charge with the ball in the final.

Bishnoi finished the tournament with 17 wickets at an average of 10.64 and a strike-rate of 18.3. He picked up three four-wicket hauls and was India’s best bowler. More than his leg-breaks, it was his googlies that were a lot more threatening and he relied on that variation quite a bit throughout the tournament. Overall, Bishnoi picked up 39 wickets at an average of 15.35 from 18 Youth ODIs.

The 19-year-old who hails from Jodhpur showed some great control and discipline as well. Moreover, he has played a handful of List ‘A’ and T20 games (across two seasons of the Syed Mushtaq Ali) for Rajasthan as well. The ability and the talent is evident and given India’s liking towards leg-spinners over the last few years, Bishnoi might definitely come into the picture if he keeps up with his performances.
