Young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti named in India squad for Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2019

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the squad for the Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2019.

The Junior Selection committee held a meeting in Mumbai on Monday to select a 15-man squad for the tournament. Reportedly, the competition is scheduled to take place in Bangladesh next month.

Young Kamlesh Nagarkoti has also made a comeback to the Indian Emerging Team for the Asia Cup. The 19-year-old, who has been out of action owing to a persisting back injury that kept him out of this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) as well, has been declared fit.

He had last played a competitive game during the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2018.

“It was tough; I used to get emotional watching the IPL on TV. All my teammates were playing, and I was recovering from an injury.

“It used to be frustrating, but my main aim was to get fit and get back on the ground. I worked really hard for that,” Nagarkoti told Cricketnext.

The Rajasthan pacer isn’t thinking too far ahead and is looking forward to once again impress the selectors.

“Whatever happened has happened, I am not thinking about it too much. I want to show everyone that I am still the same bowler and I am looking forward to whatever opportunity I get. I have worked hard on my body, diet to regain my fitness,” he added.

India squad for Emerging Teams Asia Cup:

Vinayak Gupta, Aryan Juyal, B.R. Sharath (c & wk), Chinmay Sutar, Yash Rathod, Arman Jaffer, Sanveer Singh, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Hrithik Shokeen, S.A. Desai, Arshdeep Singh, S.R. Dubey, Kumar Suraj, P. Rekhade, Kuldip Yadav.
