Varun Aaron had to see many ups and downs.
Aaron played the last match for India in 2015.
New Delhi. Indian players work hard to make a place in the international team. Many players confirm their place in the team while some have to face ups and downs. But there was also a player in Team India who got rid of the sixes of the British. But now he has disappeared from everyone’s eyes. That player’s ball rustling at a speed of more than 150 had made everyone crazy.
We are talking about fast bowler Varun Aaron, who has disappeared from cricket after coming like a whirlwind. This bowler bowled the ball at 153 km/h in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2011 and pulled the name of the selectors towards him. In the same year, he made his debut under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. The ODI debut was great for him as this bowler took the first 6 wickets of his career by bowling the batsmen. The real storm came when he went on a tour of England.
Bloody bouncer seen in England
In 2014, on the tour of England, Aaron hit Stuart Broad of England with a dangerous bouncer. It hit Broad on the nose and he went off the field. This ball had a big impact in Broad’s career and could never bat openly. He had said that he had lost his confidence after this ball. On the other hand, after this bouncer, Aaron was being seen as the future.
Injuries ended career
This player suffered two stretch fractures in his back while playing Ranji in 2008. He stayed away from cricket for a long time. After that, in 2011-12 also he was given a break of 2 years due to back injury. After 2014, his leg injury ended his Test career. He last played for India in 2015. He played 9 ODIs and 9 Tests for India in his career in which he took 11 and 18 wickets. In 2022, he was included in his camp by the new IPL franchise Gujarat Titans.
