“It is difficult; getting to the top level requires some luck and lots of runs. In the 1990s, I witnessed a lot of cricketers who excelled in domestic play but suffered a severe setback when playing for the Indian national side. To improve his technique, Harry will need to mature” RP Singh said.

When Harry was eight years old, he started playing cricket. Singh claims that while his son excelled at both football and cricket as he grew older. The family then agreed that their lone boy would play cricket while being coached by his father.

“He used to bowl quickly, but I am aware of how taxing opening the batting can be. So I made the decision to let him keep batting, and now he also bowls off-spin. He has made a minor professional stride, but he still has a long way to go,” Singh remarked.
