Seth has been playing for Bengal in domestic cricket. However, he was given very few chances in which he tried his best to prove his worth. Playing for the Krishnanagar Challengers in the Bengal, he picked key wickets including that of Abhimanyu Easwaran who recently went to South Africa with India A squad.
He also spoke about learning a few tricks of the game from Shane Watson and Dwayne Bravo.
“It was a great learning experience for me about preparation on and off the field. Being a team man is very important, you know, helping the teammates, coaches, staff. Also, being humble and grounded is the key part to success Learned a lot about variations and field placements, and a lot about batting from Watto”.
Seth also lamented about possibly never playing for India, saying that it would stay as a dream.
“Well, it was a dream to be precise, and now after waking up its seems as a dream only! (Laughs) But yes learned a lot specially under the guidance of MS Dhoni and Raina bhai” he concluded saying.
