Nayan Doshi, the son of former Indian cricketer Dilip Doshi, has created a record by becoming the oldest player to register in the upcoming Indian Premier League [IPL] auction.

Doshi, 42, is among 1097 players who have signed up for IPL 2021 auction, and should he find takers on February 18, he will become the oldest cricketer to feature in the IPL.

Nayan Doshi has in the past been a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore set-up. He featured for the Bangalore based franchise in the 2010 and 2011 edition, in which claimed two wickets across four matches.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, Nayan Doshi said that he decided to make a comeback following a review of his bowling by his father in January. He added that he is bowling at the height of his powers currently and is looking forward to getting an opportunity in the IPL.

“I am ready, and I am bowling the best. I love the game, and I want a chance to prove myself again. When it comes to cricket, I want my dad to see and check (how I am performing). I decided in January that I am going to start playing again. My dad gave me a couple of weeks. I wouldn’t take too many opinions. My dad being my dad, if I wasn’t bowling up to the mark, he would just say ‘don’t do this,” Nayan Doshi said.

Born in Nottingham, Doshi made his First-Class debut for Saurashtra in 2001/02. In 70 FC and 74 List-A games, the left-arm spinner has claimed as many as 166 and 64 wickets respectively. In 52 T20s he has 69 scalps to his credit. Doshi hasn’t played competitive cricket since the 2013/14 season.
