Bishnoi rose to prominence during his U19 World Cup days, ending as the leading wicket-taker of the 2020 U19 WC with 17 wickets in six matches.

With impressive performance for Punjab Kings in consecutive seasons, picking 12 wickets each year, earned him India call-up for the West Indies T20I series early in February.

The 21-year-old had a dream debut to cherish as he returned with the figures of 4-0-17-2 against the West Indies. He bowled 22 of his 24 deliveries as googlies in his stupendous spell where he picked the wickets of Roston Chase and Rowman Powell.

The leg-spinner bowled 16 dot balls in his tight spell despite conceding six wide deliveries.
