Dehradun, Dec 5 (PTI) Bengal’s batting stalwart Abhimanyu Easwaran has been a consistent performer at the India A level, and he hopes his elusive India debut will “happen soon”.
The top-order batter, who has more than 6,500 runs from 88 first-class games, was a stand-by for the national team in the World Test Championship final and a five-Test series in England in 2021.
“To play for the country is the ultimate goal of any player who picks up the bat or the ball. People talk about me as an Indian cricketer but I haven’t made my debut yet. I hope that happens soon,” said Abhimanyu, who originally hails from Dehradun.
The 28-year-old, who was ruled out of Vijay Hazre Trophy because of a split webbing in his right hand, has been picked for touring India A squad to South Africa.
Though his selection in the playing XI is subject to fitness, Abhimanyu is confident he will recover in time and be available for the opening game.
“I have only one dream, that is to play for my country. I will not give up on it that easily. I will keep pushing for it.
“I will be making sure that I am well prepared for it. I hope that I will play for the country soon,” Abhimanyu, who has 22 first-class centuries, told
