History highlights

  • Venkatesh Iyer has been a fan of Ganguly hitting since childhood.
  • Venkatesh, 26, has been included in the series against New Zealand

All-rounder Venkatesh Iyer has been a fan of former cricketer Sourav Ganguly’s hitting since childhood and when India had to face defeat due to Ganguly’s inability to score more runs in a match against Australia, little Venkatesh had a fever after a deep despair had arrived. Recalling his son’s passion for Indian cricket, his father Rajasekharan Iyer shared this incident with PTI on Wednesday.

Venkatesh, 26, has been inducted into the Indian T20 squad for the three-game series against New Zealand. Rajasekharan said: ‘My son had a great love for cricket from the age of six to seven. He has been a huge Ganguly fan since childhood. Inspired by Ganguly, he started hitting with his left hand like him.

That match was against Australia

He recalls, ‘Venkatesh was watching the game between India and Australia in childhood, in which India lost and even his favorite hitter, Ganguly, couldn’t score many runs. This made Venkatesh very sad and also gave him a fever. Then I realized that my son takes Indian cricket very seriously.

Rajasekaran said that after seeing this cricket craze, he sent his son to good clubs to train and encouraged him to perform better. “Luckily Venkatesh has good coaches. First Dinesh Sharma, coach of the Maharaja Yashwantrao Cricket Club (MYCC) in Indore and then Chandrakant Pandit, head coach of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, nurtured my son’s skills.

… but never committed to studies

Venkatesh’s father says that despite his passion for cricket, his son never compromised his studies. He said: ‘My son completed his graduation in commerce. In addition, he wanted to study Public Accountant. But he was unable to do so due to the cricket hustle and bustle. However, under the guidance of his mother, he obtained an MBA degree in finance.

Avesh Khan also in the series against NZ

It is worth noting that along with Venkatesh Iyer, Indore fast pitcher Avesh Khan (24) also made it to the Indian T20 team for the three-game series against New Zealand. With this selection of both young players, there is an atmosphere of celebration in the local cricket world. Congratulating Iyer and Khan on their selection to the Indian team, former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said the two rising stars have a golden opportunity to shine in the cricket sky.

He said: “After the end of India’s journey in the T20 World Cup, the new faces in the country’s team have been given a chance as a natural process. In such a situation, Iyer and Khan should try to make good use of this opportunity.
