However, the most important contribution to India A’s victory was of fast bowler Rajvardhan Hangergekar. He took five wickets against Pakistan A. Apart from Rajvardhan, Manav Sutar did the work of pushing the Pakistani batsmen on the back foot. He took 3 wickets for 36 runs in the middle overs.

No team bought Manav into IPL

He was selected for India A only after a tremendous performance in domestic cricket. Although Manav was not sold in the IPL auction last year, he was very disappointed at that time, but his coach Dheeraj Sharma explained to him that he should aim to play for the India team instead of any IPL team. Manav was the netball of Gujarat Titans in the last season of IPL and he bowled impressively there as well.

The reaction of the coach who groomed Manav

His state-level coach Dheeraj Sharma, who played the biggest role in grooming Manav Sutar, told The Indian Express that He could not watch the match against Pakistan as he was watching a match in the Under 23 tournament. But there he got information about Manav’s performance during the innings break. The wicket he took of Mohammad Haris was important to me, But the one who got Kamran out was the best.

Manav is the net bowler of the Gujarat Titans

Dheeraj Sharma further said that he was very disappointed when he was not bought by anyone in the IPL auction last year. Then I explained to him whether you want to play IPL or India. Set your goal and don’t stray from it. He then turned his attention to performance. Then Gujarat Titans chose him as their net bowler. It was good for him to get the experience of IPL. He is young and still learning a lot. His performance in the Emerging Asia Cup is going 80 per cent so far.
