If there were ever a word to describe Parthiv Patel’s year, it would be ‘great’, but great too looks like an understatement. The baby-faced-assassin paved his way from being Gujarat’s skipper in the Ranji Trophy guiding them to the knock-out stages of the tournament to leading the team to a Ranji Trophy win.
Parthiv’s 2016-17 year has been nothing short of phenomenal, with the wicketkeeper making a return to the Indian Test team following his successful season in the domestic circuit. The man himself described the season as a dream run. To finish his fantastic year, he was a crucial wheel in the Mumbai Indians’ set-up in the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League, where he amassed a total of 365 runs, failing only in the finals where he did not get the start that the team would have wanted.

Parthiv’s Indian team comeback came at the expense of the injured Indian No.1 Test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha in the five-match Test series against the visiting English side.
He took to the photo-sharing platform Instagram to share his thoughts on his beautiful season (16-17). His post read, “What a year it has been!!!!#ranjitrophy #testcomeback #ipl.”
The wicketkeeper scored 90 and 143 runs in the Ranji Trophy final against Mumbai that saw Gujarat beating the defending champions Mumbai by 5-wickets.

Interestingly enough, the left-handed veteran made his debut against the same side, who’s against he scored 195 runs across the three Tests that he played back in November.
In the Mohali Test, the southpaw scored a crucial 67 runs which not only helped India to take a grip on the match but also the knock aided the southpaw in regaining his confidence. It was the knock of 71 in Chennai that helped him enter the Indian Premier League with a massive overdose of confidence.
