Exclusive – I want to be an all-format player like Virat Kohli, says Yash Dhull after scoring century on Ranji Trophy debut | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: When Yash Dhull, the captain of the 2022 World Cup-winning Indian Under-19 team, walked out to the middle at Guwahati's Barsapara Cricket Stadium for his maiden outing in first-class cricket for Delhi, he had left the 'World Cup-winning captain' tag behind. He wasn't complacent. He wasn't nervous. All he wanted to do was live in the moment. Dhull, ahead of the toss, was asked to open the batting against the Vijay Shankar-led Tamil Nadu. The 19-year-old, who came to bat at No. 4 in the u-19 World Cup matches, had to deal with another challenge. But he accepted it. He opened the batting with Dhruv Shorey and soon saw the latter falling for 1. Himmat Singh, the No. 3 batter, too departed without troubling the scorers, leaving Delhi reeling at 7-2. Dhull, a first-class debutant, ...

ICC Under-19 World Cup: How Andhra cricket adopted humble Shaik Rasheed | Cricket News – Times of India

MSK Prasad, former India wicket-keeper and ex-chief national selector, was a very proud man for two reasons on Thursday. First, Shaik Rasheed, a native of his hometown Guntur in Andhra Pradesh, had played a crucial 94-run knock against Australia to help India reach the U-19 World Cup final. Second, Rasheed is a product of Andhra’s robust academy structure, which Prasad himself built as the state association’s director of cricket operations.

Quite a few eyebrows were raised when India’s under-19 captain Yash Dhull opted to bat first against Australia at Coolidge in the U-19 World Cup semifinal on Wednesday.

He went to Bal Bhawan school, where he has been honed for the last eight years, for admission since the academy there...

NORTH SOUND: Jacob Bethell's blistering batting display helped England advance to the semi-finals of the ICC U-19 World Cup with a six-wicket win over South Africa.
