Ind vs Eng ODI: India’s debutant pacer Prasidh Krishna shares his debut experience says, “I want to be known as a hit-the-deck bowler”

Prasidh Krishna’s debut in Indian jersey was no less than a dream. The 25-year-old pacer was opened into the Indian crew for the 3-match ODI series against England without Indian backbones pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.

The debutant pacer made a marvelous Vijay Hazare Trophy execution behind him, Prasidh Krishna made the most of each second as he got his Maiden ODI cap in the First ODI against England. Regardless of giving lot of runs in his initial spells, Prasidh made a solid rebound with the ball in his subsequent spell.

Speaking in his first post match presentation, Prasidh Krishna said, “It didn’t start off well and they came hard at us because we bowled poorly, but we had belief. We picked wickets in a cluster and that helped us a lot. I understood after my third over, I can’t bowl full, and then I hit good length areas, and let the ball do the rest.”

Speaking about the importance of the IPL in shaping him up as a strong bowler, the debutant said, “IPL has helped me, but it’s important in a 10-over format it’s more important to come back. I’d like to be known as a hit-the-deck bowler, and I’m trying to get the length more consistently, and I’m going to go back to the drawing board and improve upon it”.
