It seemed a cakewalk for the young leggie, aggressive, and passionate Bishnoi who has already displayed firework during the U-19 Worldcup and the previous two seasons of IPL. The small boy from Jodhpur made it even special by claiming two wickets in an over; thus, nearly breaking the backbone of the visitor’s middle order. He sent Roston Chase and Rovman Powell to the dressing room with his flighted googly.
After the match, Bishnoi had a chat with Yuzvendra Chahal on his famously known segment called ‘Chahal TV.’
“Every Indian child dreams to play for India and so was I, and felt nervous and excited at the same time when I arrived at the nets on day 1 of practice. And felt very proud when I received the Indian cap at Eden Gardens,” Ravi Bishnoi said in an interview with Yuzvendra Chahal as posted by BCCI official Twitter account.

From nerve & verve to a dream #TeamIndia debut!👏 👏

A pretty fine day for the Indian Team as Rohit smashed bowling allrounder Odean Smith for 22 runs in an over and captained the side to a brilliant victory against the visitors in the series opener. Alongside a good display of batting By Rohit and a steady inning by opener Ishan Kishan.
The main highlight of the match was the performance of debutant spinner Ravi Bishnoi who ended his spell with the figures of 2 wickets for 17 runs at an economy of 4.2. India will take on West Indies in the 2nd T20I at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 18th February.
