When Team India took the field for the historic Asian Games clash against Nepal, a special moment involving Sai Kishore caught everyone’s attention. While it was a historic game for Indian men’s cricket, it was also a special match for Sai Kishore.

It was a moment of intense emotion and sheer perseverance and Sai Kishore just could not control his emotions. After toiling hard for years in domestic arena, the Tamil Nadu spinner finally got the opportunity to don the famous blue jersey of the Indian team. And as soon as he stepped out on the field to play his first-ever international match, he became emotional.

The long and arduous journey can take a huge toll on player and compel him to doubt his abilities. Sai Kishore probably went through such tough times and failed to keep his emotions under check when he finally donned the Indian jersey.

Sai Kishore has been a consistent performer in the domestic circuit for years now but rarely remained in contention for a call-up from the senior Indian team. And when the BCCI decided to send a second-string side to China for the Asian Games, Sai Kishore finally got a much-deserved call-up.

Sai Kishore’s debut:

Talking about Sai Kishore’s performance in his debut match, he picked up 1 wicket for 25 runs in his quota of 4 overs against Nepal. It is a commendable effort on a ground where the shorter boundaries have made it really difficult for the bowlers to have a good game.

As far as the game is concerned, India scored 202 for 4 in the allotted 20 overs after winning the toss and opting to bat first. Opener Yashasvi Jaiswal starred with the bat, scoring 100 runs off 49 balls. Towards the end, Rinku Singh helped India finish the innings strongly by smashing 37 runs off just 15 balls.
