Prasidh Krishna Domestic and T20 Career

When Prasidh Krishna was handed a first-class debut in 2015, no one thought he would end up picking up a fifer against a touring Bangladesh side. His figures of 5 for 49 in the first-innings ensured the then Ranji champions gave a good account of themselves against an international side. Prasidh also picked up a wicket off his first ball in first-class cricket as he got Rony Talukdar to edge one to the slip cordon.

But chances did not come for the right-arm pacer, who has modeled his action on Brett Lee. But Vijay Hazare, 2017-18, changed all of that. Prasidh ended up with 17 wickets from 8 games and was the second leading wicket-taker in the tourney. This performance also included a match-winning spell of 3 for 37 against Saurashtra in the finale.

Having been coached by Glenn McGrath at the MRF Pace Academy in Chennai and Jeff Thomson at the Cricket Australia’s Centre of Excellence, Prasidh has seen it all in his little career.
