Former Indian National Team Cricketer Confident Of Comeback with New Skills

Former Indian National Team Cricketer Confident Of Comeback with New Skills

Varun Aaron is India’s one of the rare and genuine fast bowlers who was born by playing in the placid wickets.

Cricket news: Varun’s confidence has increased with his added pace and new variations with the ball

He has been in terrific form this year in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as he has taken 10 wickets in five games so far and has played a pivotal role in Jharkhand’s performance in Elite Group C.

He has played nine Tests and nine ODIs in between 2011 and 2015 and the 28-year-old pacer is hopeful of making a comeback to the Indian national side, although it is hard considering the packed bowling department India has.

Varun has also tested his skills in England’s pitches as he has played both first-class matches and List A matches for Leicestershire.

“Yes, it has been good and I am delighted to be bowling again with my old mate Rahul Shukla. We not just want to qualify but aim to win the competition,” Sportstar quoted him as saying.

Shukla has so far taken five wickets and this bowling pair has been bowling effectively and has caused mayhem for the opposition.

Varun is also happy with the fact that Jharkhand is playing their games in Chennai which is the home for the MRF Pace Foundation.

Jharkhand has trained there before the Vijay Hazare Trophy began and Varun goes there to train on days when there is no games. “MRF is my second home,” he said.

Varun suffered from frequent injuries in the past which halted his career, but now these days he is free of all those concerns.

Speaking about making a comeback to the national side, Varun seemed confident as he said that he does not only bring extra pace with him but also has added more variations to his arsenal.

In the 2014-15 Australia series, he was dropped after the Brisbane Test much to the surprise of many players as he bowled well, but luck did not favour as many catches were dropped of his bowling. Since 2015, he has not played a single Test for India.
