Kamlesh Nagarkoti: After two years of speculations and unexpected injuries that always derailed his dreams, Kamlesh Nagarkoti finally made his IPL debut bowling a few crackers against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
He was not used to his fullest as he bowled 2 overs conceding 17 runs in the process but his line and length and the pace were indeed worth watching.
Kamlesh Nagarkoti fractured his foot while playing cricket that took him out for a considerable lot of time which was followed by a major back injury that threatened to take away his first bowling from him.
It is very difficult for a fast bowler to make a comeback once he gets his rotor blade or back injured.
However, this youngster was tenacious and did everything that could have brought him back to the international roster.
Sessions with Rahul Dravid helped him immensely as it was the wall of India who gave him hope and introduced him to the example of Pat Cummins who has encountered several injuries before finally returning to the international roster and become one of the best of the business.

In fact, Ian Bishop also mentioned the name of Kamlesh Nagarkoti in his tweet, citing, “It is such a pleasure watching Shubman Gill bat. Such wonderful poise and balance. The added bonus tonight was seeing Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti on the field together again, that’s a real treat.”

Dinesh Karthik shared an emotional message for Kamlesh Nagarkoti
Dinesh Karthik was overwhelmed to see the young pacer back in action and opened up in the post-match presentation about his feelings for this strapping wunderkind.
He said, “I was emotional when Nagarkoti played today. Have seen so many questions around him and when he will play, and when it happened, it was emotional.”
Probably, he will be used for a full quota in the next game and that would see the fans getting more of this young speedster who can bowl easily at 145 kays continuously, thereby making him a standout.
