In a surprising turn of events, Bengal’s talented pacer, Akash Deep, has received his maiden Test call-up for Team India. The announcement was made by the BCCI for the remaining three Tests of the series against England. Akash Deep’s impressive performances for India ‘A’ against the England Lions earned him this well-deserved opportunity.
Replacing Avesh Khan in the squad, who has been released to play in the Ranji Trophy, Akash Deep’s inclusion came as a pleasant surprise for the young bowler. While he was in action for Bengal against Kerala, he was greeted with applause from his teammates in the dressing room when the news broke.
In an interview with PTI, Akash Deep expressed his astonishment at the sudden call-up. He had hoped for a Test call-up in the near future if he continued to perform well, but he didn’t expect it to come by the third match itself.
With 103 wickets from 29 First-Class matches and a remarkable performance in the two ‘Tests’ against England Lions, including two four-wicket hauls, Akash Deep has proven his talent. He emphasized the importance of having variations in swing bowling at the international level and the need for mental strength to execute plans under pressure.
This Test call-up is not only a proud moment for Akash Deep but also for Bengal cricket. He will be joining Mukesh Kumar, another Bengal pacer, in the Indian Test team. Akash Deep expressed his gratitude to Bengal, his home state, for giving him everything and sees this national call-up as a way to show his appreciation.
With this unexpected opportunity, Akash Deep has a chance to make a mark in the Indian Test squad and contribute to the team’s success. It is a testament to his hard work and perseverance, and his selection reflects the depth of talent in Indian cricket.
As Akash Deep prepares for his Test debut, all eyes will be on him to see how he performs on the big stage. This exciting development adds another chapter to the success story of Bengal’s cricketing talent and showcases the bright future of Indian cricket.
So, keep an eye out for Akash Deep as he takes on the challenge of international cricket and represents Bengal with pride.
