This tall bowler of Delhi Cricket Team was bought by CSK in the mega auction this year. Along with this, he has also joined the Indian cricket team as a net bowler.

Every season in the IPL, many such new and young players are entered, who grab everyone’s attention with their performance. Many of them have come out of difficult situations, while many try to make their mark while dealing with the challenging situations. The situation is no different in IPL 2022 as well and so is the case of young fast bowler Simarjeet Singh. This Delhi pacer is playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) this season, but a few years back an incident happened to him, which gave him a big and shocking blow.

Chennai Super Kings posted a video on their Twitter account on Wednesday, 11 May, in which Simarjit Singh mentioned this incident from his Under-19 career days. Simarjeet told how he was dropped from the team a day before despite being selected for the Under-19 Asia Cup tournament due to a strange rule.

First selected, then removed

Recalling that incident in CSK’s video, Simarjit Singh said, “I was selected in India U-19 for the Asia Cup. We were supposed to go for the Asia Cup, but a day ago I got a call that you cannot go to the Asia Cup because there was a rule that those who played in the last Under-19 Asia Cup cannot be fed again. I was in the team last time. The selectors did this wrong.

parents consoled

Simarjeet told that he was informed a few hours before the departure, but then his parents consoled him. The right-handed pacer said, “I had to catch the flight at 7-8 in the morning, but before that at 11 pm I get a call that you are no longer in the team. I was a little disappointed with him, but my parents explained and pacified him. He said that it is a good thing that in the first year itself, you were selected in India Under-19.
