Day by day, young batting sensation Yash Dhull is accomplishing new heights in his professional career. After an impressive campaign in the Under-19 World Cup 2022, where he led Team India to their title victory, the right-handed batter captured everyone’s attention with his scintillating First-Class debut.
In his maiden game for Delhi against Tamil Nadu in the Elite Group H of the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2022, Dhull smashed centuries in both the innings.
The 19-year-old might also make his Indian Premier League (IPL) debut in the upcoming season as he was roped in by Delhi Capitals (DC) for INR 50 lakh in the mega-auction.
Notably, Dhull was also part of the DC cricket academy and ahead of the IPL 2022 season, the aspiring batter has named one bowler he would like to face in the cash-rich league.
Dhull picked England fast bowler Jofra Archer as his choice mentioning the Bridgetown-born is really quick. He also expressed his desire to form a partnership with Australian superstar David Warner. The explosive left-handed batter was picked by DC in the two-day bidding event for INR 6.25 crore.
“I was already expecting to get picked by Delhi Capitals as I am also a part of their academy. I am really looking forward to meeting Ricky Ponting and performing under his guidance,” said Dhull as quoted by ANI.
“Jofra Archer is one bowler I would like to face. He is really quick with his bowling. And during IPL for DC, I would love to make a partnership with David Warner,” he added.
Dhull also recalled how VVS Laxman, the coach of the U19 Indian side, motivated all the boys when COVID-19 hit Team India’s camp.
“The time when our camp was hit by COVID-19 during the World Cup, all the players along with VVS Laxman sir used to have video calls. All five of us were ready to perform as soon as we would test negative. So, it was not a major problem for us,” revealed Dhull.
