Interview with Andhra Pradesh star cricketer Shiva Kumar

D Shiva Kumar is a well known name in the Indian domestic cricket. He has picked 133 wickets from just 42 matches with a stunning average of 18.19 and economy rate just over 2 runs an over, 2.05 to be specific. He was also part of the victorious Under 19 team lead by now Team Indian Test Captain and Star Cricketer Virat Kohli!

In an interview with Cricket Bleeds, Shiva Kumar has shared few interesting things about his Cricketing career.

Shiva Kumar is S/o D. Rama Rao who is the secretary of HUDA. he has started playing Cricket at young age and used to play at the  Municipal stadium in Vizag. Just like any other Indian father, Shiva’s father was not keen on his Cricketing ambitions as most Indians parents believe Cricket is just waste of time and is no good choice from career’s perspective. But things changed when he started playing Competitive Cricket and got recognition. Shiva Kumar credits his elder brother for encouraging his interest in Cricket.

Shiva Kumar played for Andhra Pradesh State Under 12 team in 2002, but shortly after that he has to take a break in 2004 due to academics (He was in 10th class that) and as well all know it is considered very important.

Once he restarted playing competitive Cricket, he soon become part of the Indian Squad for the Under 19 World Cup which took place in Malaysia. He was led by a star cricketer of present Indian team which is none other than Virat Kohli – other star players among the squad that played in 2008 include A Mukund, S Tiwary, R Jadeja, Manish Pandey all of whom represented India already. Shiva Kumar considers himself unlucky as even after performing well year after year in Ranji Trophy and other Domestic tournaments he has been ignored by both Zonal selectors and the IPL teams.

Luck did not favour him before as well as his debut in Domestic Cricket was delayed due to an accident just before the flight from Vizag, the team was supposed to play in Meerut that day. Finally he made his first class debut in 2009 both in longer and shorter formats. However injuries has always been part of Shiva’s career which is common with most of the fast bowlers in world cricket. These injuries has cut short his opportunities in the shorter formats, even after bring in the Domestic circuit for 8 yrs he played only 43 matches picking up 45 wickets in shorter formats One Day and T20’s.

This year Andhra Cricket Association has brought in the left arm spinner Bhargav Bhatt who immediately proved his worth by picking up 38 wickets in 9 matches and positioned himself at 8th in the top wicket takers list in the Ranji Trophy Season. Shiva feels that Bhargav has reduced the work load on the fast bowlers and congratulates him for his performance this year.

According to Shiva Kumar Test Cricket is the ultimate format of the game which tests talent and skill of a player. He also feels that One day, T20 cricket is less demanding and is being recognized more these days. Yet he feels the longer format of the game gives time to change strategies and win the match. IPL contract has been something Shiva is looking at for sometime but unfortunately he is yet to be given a chance by any of the IPL franchises even after performing so well, being economical and picking wickets at very low average.

Shiva Kumar considers himself as a bowling allrounder although he could not get many chances to show it but has proven that he has skill and capabilities to play long innings. He has scored a century and 5 half centuries in the long format. He has also scored a century while opening the team’s batting for his UK club Walsall Cricket Club in a sunday game. He dreams about playing for India in the coming years by replicating his performances during the 2014-2015 Ranji season where he picked 44 wickets in Ranji Trophy Season in just 9 matches at an astonishing average of 14.25 with 2 10 wicket hauls per match. With skill & age on his side, let’s hope he will get more chances to show case his talent & skills at higher levels.

Reasons behind playing less matches during the early stages of his career ?

During those days, a player had to play for the U-22 team and on the basis of those performances a player was picked for the State team to be featured in the Ranji trophy. So by the time U – 22 matches were over and he was picked for the state team only 2,3 matches were left in the Ranji Trophy season. That was the reason why he could not play more matches during the early stages of his career and once he crossed the age group he became regular part of the State team.

Kamran Akmal does Dhoni to run out Sarfraz Khan in PSL

Kamran Akmal does Dhoni to run out Sarfraz Khan in PSL

 

17.1 from Wahab Riaz, short and wide, cuts off the backfoot to deep point. Sweeper cover runs across and collects it and they push for the second. Good throw needed and it comes at the keeper’s end. Not the best of throws. Kamran does well to gather the ball and throw on to the stumps and he is short of the crease. Credit to the keeper there for collecting a slightly wayward throw.

Mohit Ahlawat record earns him IPL trail with Delhi Daredevils

Mohit Ahlawat is not a name known to many unless they are keen followers of Indian domestic cricket or loyal fans of Delhi Ranji Cricket team. He came into limelight hitting a tripe century in a T20 game. A week ago Mohit must be one of those guys worst batting records in domestic cricket as the 21 year old Delhi player has a batting average of 1.00 against his name having represented the Delhi Ranji Team in 3 test matches. But now he is star already and is making few teams discuss his name in their team meetings and with the IPL auctions about to take place and season starting in April he could well earn an IPL contract. A popular news paper has mentioned that his incredible feat has earned him a trail with the Delhi based IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils mentored by Rahul Dravid. Mohit Ahlawat record earns him IPL trail with Delhi Daredevils

Mohit Ahlawat record earns him IPL trail with Delhi Daredevils

Mohit scored the unbelievable triple hundred in a t20 match of the Friends Premier League at Lalita Park, which is home of a particularly small ground in east Delhi, on Tuesday. Opening the batting, the wicket keeper batsman Ahlawat thrashed 14 fours and 39 sixes in a 72-ball innings, scoring 300 not out with the team reaching a mamoth total of 416 for 2.

Among the official T20 matches West Indies player Chris Gayke holds the record for highest individual score with 175 he scored for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2013; and no team has ever managed to score 300 in a T20 match. The total innings score of RCB’s Gayle-powered 263 for 5 was equaled by Australia against Sri Lanka last year.

Similar records:

Sri Lankan Dhanuka Pathirana  scored 277 runs from just 72 balls in a Lancashire League T20 match during the 2007 season. Then 2 yrs ago Lancashire’s promising batsman Liam Livingstone made headlines by scoring 350 runs in a 45 over match for Nantwich club.

Let’s hope this wonderful is not a one time performance by the young man and he keeps going forward in his career. If things go well we may well find him playing in IPL this season.

Mustafizur’s much awaited Sussex campaign halted again

Sussex county who had to wait long to avail the services of the Bangaldeshi youngster. He came to Hove and played in two games picking 4 wickets on his debut and returning empty handed in the next. But injured himself making him unavailable. The shoulder injury has again ruled him out of the remainder of Sussex’s group phase matches in the ongoing Royal London One-Day Cup and NatWest T20 Blast. But it is yet to be known if he will go back to Dhaka. Mustafizur’s much awaited Sussex campaign halted again!

The 20 yr old has been in the International circuit for just 1 yr but has already made name for himself as one of the best fast bowlers in Cricket currently atleast in the shorter formats with his canny variations and slower balls. Although he has never been out of form since debut, injuries have been part of his journey.

The Fizz could not take part in the inaugural Pakistan Super League earlier this year due to a shoulder injury he suffered during a Twenty 20 International encounter against Zimbabwe. He then had to sit out mid-way through the 2016 Asia Cup in February with a side strain, followed by injuries to his right hamstring and ankle, the rehabilitation of which nearly kept him out of the Sussex stint. It was said that during his debut season with SRH in IPL he felt he needs some rest.

“The 20-year-old is suffering from a shoulder injury, and, under the direction of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, is due to have a scan this week to ascertain whether or not he will be fit enough to play in any knockout matches should Sussex qualify for the latter stages of either competition,” Sussex County Cricket club said in a statement on Wednesday (July 27).
