Sachin Tendulkar to Irfan Pathan: How did cricket fraternity react to Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar’s maiden T20I call-ups


Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar congratulated Ishan Kishan, Rahul Tewatia, Suryakumar Yadav, and Varun Chakravarthy for their maiden call-up to Team India for the upcoming T20I series against England. Wishing the four uncapped cricketers, Tendulkar said playing for the country is the highest honour for any cricketer.

BCCI on Saturday announced India’s squad for the upcoming five-match T20I series against England, starting from March 12.

Kishan’s name was added to the squad on a day when the 22-year old kicked-off this year’s Vijay Hazare Trophy on a commanding note and smashed 173 runs from 94 deliveries

Suryakumar, who proved to be a key figure in the Mumbai Indians setup, was finally rewarded for his consistency. He had amassed 480 runs in 16 IPL matches for the Mumbai franchise in the previous edition in UAE. Suryakumar was overlooked for the limited overs matches in Australia late last year despite a fine IPL, leaving many in the Indian cricket fraternity surprised.

Kolkata Knight Rider’s (KKR) spinner Varun Chakravarthy, was also named in the squad besides Rajasthan Royals’ Rahul Tewatia. Chakravarthy had an amazing season with the ball in IPL 2020 and finished the tournament with 17 wickets from 13 matches. He was also roped in India’s T20 squad for Australia tour but was replaced by T Natarajan after sustaining an injury on his shoulder. 

Meanwhile, Irfan Pathan and Harbhajan Singh also congratulated the cricketers for their inclusion in the Indian squad. 

India’s T20I squad: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Varun Chakravarthy, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Rahul Tewatia, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur
