On the day the selectors were anticipated to announce the squad for the forthcoming white-ball home series against Sri Lanka, Tuesday, Yash Dhull, however, became trending on Twitter. According to several media sources, Dhull might be contending for a spot on the ODI squad.
Who is Yash Dhul?
The Delhi-born Yash Dhull, a lanky middle-order batsman, rose to fame earlier this year when the Indian U-19 side won the World Cup by defeating England in the title game in February 2022. Dhull, the team’s captain, received immediate praise for a few outstanding knocks that contributed to India winning the title. After that victory, the Delhi kid addressed the media and made it clear that he wanted to play for the senior national team as soon as possible.
Since then, he has collected 939 runs in 10 first-class games, smashing 4 hundred and 2 half-centuries at an average of over 67. He has one half-century under his belt and has scored 191 runs in six games in List A (domestic one-day matches), which are modest statistics in contrast.
The performances are excellent, but given the pool of quality that Indian cricket now possesses, one would surmise that the 20-year-old is still a long way from fulfilling his dream of representing Team India.
Dhull may be gunning for a spot in the ODI team, according to some media sources, including one from Cricbuzz. When this fact was brought up, Twitter went into overdrive, and the youngster quickly became popular. We’ll look at some of the responses. Some tweets expressed support, while others questioned whether Dhull deserved to be considered or if there were other candidates who were more deserving.
