The 12th player suddenly got a chance to debut, ‘Punch’ shook all the strings of the batters, left the first love at the behest of the father


M Venkatesh took 5 wickets for just 36 runs in 14 overs.
During his bowling, Venkatesh also bowled three maiden overs.

New Delhi. M Venkatesh was the 12th player and was expected to carry drinks for his teammates on the field, but suddenly everything changed. Venkatesh’s Karnataka team captain Mayank Agarwal told him that he was going to bowl as Vasuki Kaushik was injured. This 22-year-old player was happy because it was his first match. But he was equally nervous. He didn’t have much time to prepare or understand anything and he had to get on the field to bowl.

Fast bowler (right arm medium) and a batsman, Venkatesh fiercely capitalized on this opportunity given by the captain and bowled strongly in the match. M Venkatesh destroyed the batting line-up of Uttarakhand by taking five wickets for just 36 runs in 14 overs. He also bowled three maiden overs in his spell. He has become the 12th Karnataka bowler to take five or more wickets in his debut Ranji Trophy match.

Venkatesh broke down after wreaking havoc on the bowlers of Uttarakhand
Karnataka is playing against Uttarakhand in the Ranji Trophy quarter-finals. A shy but confident and energetic Venkatesh was stacking batsmen one after the other through his superb bowling on the field. After this memorable day of his life, the Mysore player said, “I was very happy and nervous. I didn’t even have time to tell my family that I am playing today.
World champion daughters will be honored today.. A grand event will be held at Narendra Modi Stadium.. Sachin Tendulkar will be the chief guest.

Venkatesh comes from a family of musicians and artists
After taking his first wicket in the 12th over of the match, his nervousness subsided and he looked relaxed. Venkatesh has left his mark in his debut match itself. People have come to know about his cricketing skills, but very few people know that he is also a trained Carnatic musician. Venkatesh hails from a family of Carnatic musicians and artistes. His grandmother V Saroja is a famous Carnatic singer. His mother Dakshinayini Muralidhar is a classical dancer.

Left music on father’s advice and took up bat-ball
Venkatesh’s younger brother Yogeshwar is also a trained Carnatic musician and is making a name for himself in Kannada TV channels. His father Muralidhar persuaded him to concentrate on cricket and Venkatesh gave up music to show his prowess with bat and ball on the field.

Started career as a batsman
Venkatesh started his career as a batsman. He scored a century in one of the league matches. He has so far taken 50 wickets in Vinoo Mankad and Cooch Behar tournaments. Venkatesh, who dreams of playing for the Indian cricket team, says that his coach Lian Khan transformed him from a batsman to a bowler, according to a report in leading Kannada daily ‘Prajavani’.
