Washington Sundar has contributed significantly for India in his short Test career
In his short Test career that has lasted just 4 Test matches, the Indian all-rounder has contributed significantly with the willow for his country. Sundar’s Test match debut was at The Gabba in Brisbane against the Australian side, and the left-hander was impressive with the willow in his first outing in Tests.
He scored a crucial 62 in the first innings and followed that up with a quick 22 in the second innings. Sundar continued his impressive show with the bat in the Test series against England at home as well. The left-hander plundered 181 runs in the 4 innings that he played against England at home earlier this year, and scored his runs at an average of 90.50.
He also scored two glorious fifties against Joe Root and his men as well. In fact, his sensational 96* against England in the 4th Test match and his 113-run stand with Rishabh Pant allowed India to come out of troubled waters. The Indian side was tottering at 146/6, but Sundar’s excellent knock ensured that India scored 365 runs in their first innings, and defeated England by an innings and 25 runs in the final rubber.
