Former Australian speedster, Brett Lee, who has been following the ongoing Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) behind the mic, has showered praises for Albert Tuti Patriot all rounder Washington Sundar, after his performance against the Chepauk Super Gillies yesterday. Lee described Sundar as ‘absolutely terrific’ and termed him as the one for the future.
17-year old off spinning all-rounder, Washington Sundar, came into the reckoning in this edition of the IPL as he represented the Rising Pune Supergiant who reached the finals of the tournament. The RPS side was led by their spirited Australian skipper Steve Smith who headed a side with cricketing heavyweights such as MS Dhoni, Ben Stokes, Ajinkya Rahane and Faf Du Plessis.
Sundar was the youngest in the tournament’s history to play in the final and also bowled the most economical spell (0/13 in 4 overs) in the title clash. In a recent interview, the teenager mentioned about the inputs he received from the Supergiants in the Pune franchise and clearly yielded results with his performance in the TNPL. He scored a breathtaking century (107) against the Chepauk Super Gillies last night which helped them win the match convincingly. Patriots won the match by a margin of 27 runs after posting a total of 178.
Sundar-one for the future: Lee
“I am a big fan of Washington Sundar. He is a very exciting player. He’s a player who offers a lot with the bat and ball. He is tall, confident, and very good in the field. Definitely a player for the future. Absolutely terrific!,” commented Brett Lee according to OneIndia. Sundar is currently the leading run scorer and wicket taker in this edition of TNPL. He has clinched as many as eight wickets and amassed 287 runs in the tournament so far. He also became the first player to hit a ton in this edition of Tamil Nadu Premier League.
