Tried his hand in coaching after retirement, 2 disciples have played cricket for India

New Delhi. There have been many such players in Indian cricket, who made their debut with a bang, but then their career could not progress at that pace. One such cricketer has been Amay Khurasia, who made his debut for India in 1999. In the same year, he was also selected in the ODI World Cup team played in England. But Amay’s hands remained empty. Because in the entire tournament, Captain Mohammad Azharuddin did not give a chance in the playing-XI in a single match. After this Amay could not play for India for a long time and played the last ODI in 2001.

Amay Khurasia did not even get a chance to play Test for India. Amay had made his first class debut at the age of 17. However, after 10 years, he got a chance to debut for India. Amay made his ODI debut on May 30, 1999 against Sri Lanka. In his very first international match, this left-handed batsman scored an inning of 57 runs in 45 balls while batting at number 5. He had hit 4 fours and 2 sixes.

In this match, Ajay Jadeja had scored a century. However, despite such a good start, Amay’s career lasted 2 years. During this, he scored 149 runs in 12 ODIs played for India and after debut, Amay Khurasia could not hit Fifty again in any match. After this Amay was also dropped from the team. In 2001, before the Coca-Cola Cup in Sri Lanka, Amay again got a chance in Team India due to Sachin Tendulkar’s injury. But, Amay, who came to the team as a standby opener, could not capitalize on it and played his last match in 2001 itself.

Amay hit 21 centuries in first class cricket
Amay Khurasia scored more than 7300 runs in first class cricket for Madhya Pradesh. He hit 21 centuries and 31 half-centuries. Amay also retired from first class cricket in 2007 and then tried his hand at TV commentary. After this, he was also the coach of the Cricket Academy of Madhya Pradesh.

The captaincy went out of hand in the middle of IPL, then suffered from injury, a double-edged sword made after the comeback, now everyone is sure to be cut!

Avesh, carved Venkatesh Iyer
Even though Amay Khurasia himself could play only 12 ODIs for India. But, 2 of his groomed players played for India. This includes fast bowlers Avesh Khan and Venkatesh Iyer. Amay Khurasia also has a big hand in shaping the batting of Rajat Patidar, who is constantly knocking in Team India. He is still playing the role of coach of the MPCA Academy and is working to groom the young players of Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh team became Ranji champion last year, in that also Amay played an important role.
