The Game-Changing Story
Avinash Singh had a strong belief in his pace bowling. Just before the IPL auctions were scheduled to take place, Singh joined a professional cricket academy in Jammu where he polished his skills and worked hard on his bowling.
Avinash joined the Mayank Joshi Cricket Academy after being aware that the selection trial camp organized by IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore will soon take place. He honed his skills and put up an exemplary performance at the trial camp.
Avinash attracted the attention of all the selectors and was unarguably impressive with his tremendous bowling abilities. It is believed that Avinash carries a terrific pace that is similar to his fellow Jammu & Kashmir-capped express paceman Umran Malik. Notably, cricketer Avinash Singh had also traveled to Pune to accomplish his desire of being a prolific pace bowler & started to train under Prolific coach Ashok Gaikwad from March 2022 to June 2022. After completing his training with the coach he went back to Jammu & Kashmir where he started performing with IPL camps such as Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals & Lucknow Supergiants.
How did Avinash Singh grab RCB’s Attention?
Avinash exploited a sizzling opportunity that was provided by IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Hinterland Scouting program. The scouting program was based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) parameters and Singh successfully managed to surpass a couple of them. An interesting fact about Singh’s bowling is that he had the ability to bowl over 145 km/hr.
Gathering all the required attention, Avinash successfully managed to storm into the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise after he was picked for a whopping Rs. 60 Lakh at the IPL Auctions 2023 in Kochi. Singh was amongst the five uncapped players bought by RCB for the upcoming edition of the IPL.
It is interesting to see the enlarging athletes being grabbed from the grassroots of Jammu & Kashmir cricket. Apart from Singh, another J & K cricketer Vivrant Sharma was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise for a stunning Rs. 2.6 crores.
Budding Cricketer Avinash Singh will now join the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp alongside veteran Indian cricketer Virat Kohli. RCB will likely groom the express paceman and restructure his palatial skills to use his extraordinary pace in the upcoming season. The overnight hero will also aim to display his potential and soon storm into the national squad.
Avinash Singh’s Father’s Reaction
Avinash’s family was very proud after his induction into the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise. His father stated that he is proud of his son. He further added that he has toiled hard relentlessly and he will likely prove his selection with a top-class performance.
Avinash Singh Professional Stats
Avinash has not played any professional cricket in his career. He has been a tennis-ball player throughout his amateur life and is not inducted into Jammu & Kashmir’s official team or club. There is no transcript of any official fixture played by Avinash. However, due to his prolific performance in trials & RCB training camp, he was picked by the franchise in the IPL 2023 for whopping 60 lakhs. He has proved that no matter what, if you have talent & determination you can turn the impossible into possible.
