Washington Sundar took to social media to share a couple of pictures of himself spending lively time with music maestro AR Rahman. Sundar who is getting ready for the upcoming Test series against England captioned the picture as “To a blissful evening”.
Sundar made his test debut in the recently ended test series in Australia. The India all-rounder impressed everyone with his heroics with bat & ball right in his first test match. He scalped four wickets & scored 84 runs. Including a half century in the first innings, that helped India beat Australia by three wickets in Brisbane and clinch the four-match series 2-1.
Sundar who became the 301st Test cricketer for India as he took the field at the Gabba had posted a picture with his father on Sunday flaunting his test cap. Sundar inspired by team India Had Coach also expressed his dream to open the batting for India in Test cricket.
“I think it will be a blessing for me if I ever get an opportunity to open the batting for India in Tests. I think I will accept the challenge just like our coach Ravi sir did during his playing days,” Washington had said.
In the Brisbane Test India were in danger of conceding a big first innings deficit after scoring just 186 for 6 wickets down in response to Aussie’s 369. Sundar & Thakur both smashed half centuries as the duo scored a vital 123 runs partnership for the seventh wicket down to remove India out of trouble in the first innings and help the visitors script a memorable series win on Australian soil.
