The tour of the United Kingdom (UK) is turning out to be a memorable one for Siddarth Kaul. On June 29, he made his Twenty20 International debut during the second T20 International against Ireland.

The paceman went on to play another T20I during the series against England. Two games and three wickets later, he enjoyed yet another memorable day on Thursday (June 12) when he earned his maiden One-day International cap for the first ODI against England.

Before the game, Mahendra Singh Dhoni gave him his maiden ODI cap just like the way the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman had given him the cap on his T20I debut.

It was all Déjà vu for the Punjab pacer as he took to microblogging website Twitter to express his delight. He also thanked God and supporters.

“ODI Debut. Cap Presented by Mahi Bhai. A great win for the side. It was all like a Deja Vu. I think it is a safe time to replug this tweet. Thank you for Everything God ? And thanks to all those who supported me :),” he wrote.

On a personal note, it was not a very good game for Kaul. The right-arm pacer Siddarth Kaul conceded 62 runs in his ten overs and eventually went wicketless.

However, his performance did not hurt India as the Men in Blue thrashed England convincingly by eight wickets in the series-opener.

Barring the first ten overs of England’s innings, the Men in Blue thoroughly dominated the contest to emerge as victorious.

Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav was once again the wrecker-in-chief bagging career-best figures of six for 25 to blow away England.

As a result, England were all out for a modest total of 268 despite being 71 for no loss after ten. In reply, India chased down the total with utmost ease in the 41st over.

Top-order batsman Rohit Sharma once again starred with the bat, scoring an unbeaten ton while Virat Kohli scored 75 as the duo batted England out of the game.


An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
