New Delhi: Under-19 World Cup champion captain Yush Dhull wants to follow in the footsteps of his state team’s senior cricketer and current time run machine (Virat Kohli). Like him, he wants to be a cannon batsman in every format. He said in an interview to Times of India that Virat Bhaiya is my hero. I want to be the best batsman like him in every format. Yash scored a century in his debut Ranji match and started his first-class career with a bang. He said about his debut match, ‘Only the color of the ball has changed, the game is the same. This is normal for me. I just wanted to bat on the field and did the same. I don’t feel any pressure. I went there with a calm mind. The best part was that I believed in my style of play. He said about his dream, ‘I want to be an all-format player like Virat Bhaiya (Virat Kohli). He is a legend of the game. He has dominated in all three formats. I also want to be the best in all three formats. She is my inspiration. Dhul’s innings was appreciated by the seniors and coaches in the dressing room. His thrilling innings finally came to an end when he was dismissed lbw by M Mohammed. Talking about his feelings before the match, he said, “It was my debut match, but I didn’t panic. I have captained India in the World Cup and that tournament taught me a lot. The Under-19 World Cup taught me how to handle pressure and perform in tough conditions and that helped me. Talking about the support he got from his coach and senior players, he said, “I spoke to seniors like Rajesh sir, Anuj Bhaiya (Anuj Rawat) and Rajkumar sir before my Ranji debut and they said it is all about mindset. .’ Rajesh sir said – ‘Keep calm, go and bat the way you bat. He said – ‘You are a World Cup winning captain and you have already performed at the highest level, so this will be an easy one for you. He told me not to think about it at all. Dhul’s childhood coach Rajesh Nagar also spoke about how he inspired his student ahead of his big debut day. He told- Yash has been a middle-order batsman. He batted several times in Delhi League matches. He called and said that the team wants him to open the batting. He was excited and nervous too, as this was the first time he was asked to make his batting debut in competitive cricket. I told him to give himself some time at the crease, and the runs would come on their own.
