Tanay Thyagarajan had an opportunity entry into the world of cricket.
At the age of eight, he was ready for his mom to choose him up from college in Kolkata. One day she was late and the varsity coach requested Tanay to ship down a number of balls. The younger boy was spot on, hitting the nice size space the place a hat was stored, constantly.
“That’s how my journey began as a left-arm spinner,” Tanay recalled. “We are a group of players more committed to see the team winning and not focusing on individual goals,” the 28-year-old Tanay stated in a chat with The Hindu after his match-figures of 13/144 in opposition to Nagaland within the Ranji Trophy Plate semifinal right here on Sunday.
“We wanted to make sure that when we got to the Elite Group, we took our game to the next level. It has been a learning experience. I believe that I and the team are on the right track,” stated Tanay, who has 46 scalps to this point this season to be the best wicket-taker within the Plate Group.
“I feel my job in the team is to be a wicket-taker,” stated the left-arm spinner who adores Ravindra Jadeja.
“The biggest motivation is to do exceptionally well to qualify for the Elite Group. Full credit to our captain Tilak Varma, who brought in a culture of giving importance to winning. With seniors like Tanmay, Rohit, Ravi Teja and C.V. Milind and the support staff with head coach Ravi Sir (D.B. Ravi Teja), Pavan Kumar, it has been a terrific atmosphere for all of us to go out and give our best,” Tanay stated. “It is all about winning and nothing else.”
“I owe a lot to mentor Abhijit Chatterjee and my coach Adnan Bafna. They always insisted that sending down wicket-taking balls are the most important in a bowler’s career and that’s what really helped me… My goal is to help Hyderabad win trophies,” he signed off.
