The left-arm orthodox spinner was terrific in the first game that India played against South Africa. He dismissed five of the South African batters and ended up with the figures of 5/28. He might become the leading wicket-taker of the tournament as he is bowling consistently good. As of now, he has picked nine wickets in four matches.
He looked in fine form in the 2021-22 Vinoo Mankad Trophy scoring 302 runs in five games for DDCA. These performances made way for him in the U19 World Cup squad. Unfortunately, the Delhi batter tested positive for COVID-19 just before India’s second game against Ireland and was out for the next two games.
Nishant Sindhu was made the captain of the side when India’s captain and vice-captain both tested positive for COVID-19. He captained the side against Ireland and Uganda and ensured a win for his team in both of the games. He scored a good-looking 36 of 34 balls against Ireland.
He also bowls left-arm medium pace and can win games with the ball too. The Himachal Pradesh all-rounder has also made some appearances in U19 cricket even before the World Cup. He can be a nice option for an IPL team to bat in the lower middle-order and teams can also make the most out of him with the ball in hand.
He has scored a fifty and a hundred in those 272 runs. His score of 144 off 120 balls against Uganda was highly praised by the cricket experts. He has earned a name for himself. His 79 against Ireland was also a crucial one for the team. He is India’s highest run-scorer in the tournament so far.
