Akshay Karnewar Surprises Australia by Bowling With Both Arms in Same Over

Akshay Karnewar Surprises Australia by Bowling With Both Arms in Same Over

Indian Board President's XI bowler Akshay Karnewar produced an unusual site during their encounter against Australian team when he bowled with both arms in the match.

Board President's XI is not a strong side, and they may not pose a big threat to the Australian side comprised of players with global standards.

"But I bowl a lot of variations, so it's a tough one".

Opener Aaron Finch has been ruled out of Australia's warm-up game against the Board President's XI to be played on Tuesday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. "Every single one of them are great players, very good players".

Pacemen Pat Cummins bowled only four overs as the Australians apparently thought it fit to conserve his energies after his exertions in the Bangladesh Test series. In the Board President's XI, only Gurkeeramat Mann has played for the National side so far, and the remaining players are all youngsters who are aiming to make it big by marking their presence felt in this game. "We were in Delhi together during my first IPL and it is good for me", he said.

Marcus Stoinis was top-scorer for his side as he slammed 60-ball 76.

It was a stunning shift in gear, but one that came as no surprise to opposing skipper and Indian Premier League teammate Gurkeerat Mann.

"I worked with Sriram for four months on the trot. I think everyone will take back something from the game individually", he added. Stoinis appeared to be at ease on Tuesday while defending.

When Stoinis went on strike and prepared to face Karnewar, he was informed by the umpire that the bowler was to switch hands.

Although he did allow himself a brief moment of speculation that after another year on the fringes, his global career is about to re-launch.

Apart from him and Head, David Warner and captain Steve Smith scored half-centuries as well. "I am no selector but, maybe, there is room for both".

India squad (first three ODIs): Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.
