spinner varun chakraborty missed debut twice
Chakraborty, an engineer-turned-cricketer, had a chance to make his Australia tour debut in 2020/21 but missed it due to injury. After this, he was also prevented from making his debut against England at home due to fitness issues. However, this time when Chakraborty got the opportunity in front of Sri Lanka, he was fully prepared and played a key role in India’s defense of 165 runs. Chakraborty, who made headlines for bowling brilliantly for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL, is known for bowling a variety of deliveries.
Laxman sees ‘X-factor’ in Varun
Former India batsman VVS Laxman is also very impressed with Chakraborty’s ability to bowl at different stages of the match. He has praised the mystery spinner before the second T20. Laxman says that he sees the X-factor in Chakraborty. Laxman said in Star Sports’ show Game Plan, ‘First of all, I am glad that he (Varun Chakraborty) got a chance to debut. He was selected twice earlier, but could not be a part of the team due to not passing the fitness test. I think there is a lot of talk about the secret of his bowling.
‘Don’t expect miracles from one match’
Laxman said, “I was talking with the Sunrisers batsmen and they all are impressed with Chakraborty’s ability to bowl at different parts and stages of the match. He can bowl with the new ball. When the captain and the team want to break a partnership, they can take wickets. It means he has X-factor. He added, “We want him to get experience in international cricket and the only way to do that is to play. So, I am sure he will not miss any chance to really capitalize on this opportunity. Don’t expect miracles from a match. It is very important to show patience and faith in a player.
