Bengal opener Abhimanyu Easwaran is looking forward to boarding the flight to England after he made the cut as one of the four standby players for the upcoming World Test Championship final and the five-match Test series against England.
Easwaran, who made his professional cricket debut back in 2013, is aiming to improve himself and make the most of the opportunity if and when he gets one.
“If I can improve as a player in that tour, that will be good. And if I get an opportunity, I will make the most of it,” Abhimanyu Easwaran said as quoted by India Today.
Abhimanyu Easwaran was one of the standby players during the recent Test series against England on home soil.
The right-handed Dehradun-born cricketer revealed that he learned a lot by closely observing the likes of Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Rohit Sharma in the nets.
“We had only heard about it. We got to know how Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Cheteshwar Pujara practice. They are very specific. They just do what they would be doing in the match. And when you actually see them do the same thing the next day, it feels great,” Easwaran said.
Speaking about his First-Class numbers, Abhimanyu Easwaran has 4401 runs in 111 innings at an average of 43.57 with 18 50s and 11 hundred.
