Prasidh Krishna Shares Anecdotes From His Stint At MRF Pace Foundation Under Glenn McGrath

The KKR pacer took 4/54 which included wickets of Jason Roy and Ben Stokes.

Prasidh Krishna had a dream ODI debut in the first ODI match against England in Pune. The KKR pacer took 4/54 which included wickets of Jason Roy and Ben Stokes. Meanwhile, legendary Australian pacer Glenn McGrath was impressed by the youngster’s performance and congratulated him for the same on Twitter. India won the first match by 66 runs courtesy of Prasidh’s exploits with the ball.

“Congratulations Prasidh @skiddyy on taking 4/54 & breaking the Indian record for most wickets taken by a bowler on ODI debut. Well done mate #cricket #mrfpacefoundation #fbc,” McGrath wrote in his Twitter post.

 

Prasidh, who also went to the CA Centre of Excellence in Brisbane in 2019 as part of MRF Pace Foundation’s MoU with Cricket Australia, was overwhelmed by his mentor’s appreciation post.

Prasidh Krishna Recalls Time Spent With Glenn McGrath

“The difference he made was to bring in that aura of calmness and also he was very specific about the line and length with respect to different pitches. He always spoke of being consistent. The first thing I picked from him was to remain in the present under all circumstances as it is the most important aspect for a bowler when you are playing a game,” Kolkata Knight Riders official website quoted Prasidh as saying on McGrath’s contribution to his career.

Chasing 318 to win, England were well placed on 135 in the 15h wicket. After the dismissal of Roy, England lost their last nine wickets for 116 runs with the Indian bowlers turning the game on its head. Jonny Bairstow’s 94 was not enough to see his team home as England’s middle-order failed to take up the pressure of chasing down the runs.

England skipper Eoin Morgan blamed the batting collapse in the middle-order for the side’s loss in the first game. The two teams meet again on March 26 for the second game. The game will be a must-win for the visitors to keep them alive in the series.
