Young leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi looked promising as he drove India into the U19 World Cup finals in 2020. In the current scenario, he is all set to kick start his IPL journey after being roped in by the Kings XI Punjab squad. With just a handful of days remaining in the commencement of the mega event, Bishnoi insists that he is trying his best to learn things from seniors. He also idolizes Anil Kumble, the head coach of the franchise, and is trying to gain knowledge from him.
The 20-year-old has 17 wickets to his credit from six matches when he was part of Indian squad at the recent U19 World Cup. Bishnoi also said he’ll try to bowl as per directions of Kumble Sir and praised his skipper KL Rahul too. Rahul will be leading the team for the first time from front to clinch their maiden IPL trophy this season.
“He (Kumble) is one of the greatest spinners in the world, so I am trying to learn a lot of things from him and his experience. Whether it’s his match temperament, skills, how he handled the match situation, how he bowled the flippers, I am trying to learn all of that from him. Right now, I have time to learn from him, and this is the best opportunity for me,” Bishnoi said as quoted by Cricket Next.
The setup of the team is also very good: Ravi Bishnoi
The young spinner also emphasized the fact that Kumble sir has asked him to bowl as per the match situations. He propagated positive vibes by stating that Punjab is looking in a position to win the trophy this year.
“Kumble sir has told me to bowl according to the match situation and do what I think I can do. Rahul is a good player as well as a good captain. In the nets, he goes to every player and talks and shares his experience. So far, it has been great talking to him, and I am excited to play under his captaincy.
The setup of the team is also very good. All the players are looking in a good rhythm. Our team is a contender for the title,” concluded Bishnoi.
