Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur these five Indian batsmen were the wickets of 21-year-old Roman Walker. Roman Walker’s bowling troubled the Indian batsmen on the first day of the four-day practice match between India and Leicestershire. India’s Jasprit Bumrah and famous Krishna are also playing for Leicestershire, but these two Indian bowlers did not do anything special, while for Walker, the first day of this practice match became memorable forever.
Walker has not yet made his debut in first-class cricket. He has played only two list matches before this and during this time only one wicket has come in his account. Walker has played for Leicestershire in the Vitality Blast and has a total of 17 wickets in 13 T20 matches. Apart from this, Walker was also part of the England cricket team in the 2018 Under-19 World Cup, although he did not get a chance to play many matches then.
Walker opened the account of his wicket in the practice match by sending Rohit Sharma to the pavilion. The way Rohit, Virat, Hanuma Vihari, Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur were dismissed on his bowling, it would not be wrong to say that this player can prove to be England’s star bowler in the coming times. Talking about the practice match, a total of 60.2 overs were played on the first day. India scored 246 runs for eight wickets. Sreekar Bharat scored 70 runs and Mohammed Shami returned not out after scoring 18 runs.
