How is that even possible
He was part of the U/19 team, played few international matches at that level (and played well). But he missed out on U/19 WC'14 due to injury. He came in limelight as a net bowler when he was helping the national team batsmen to prepare against Amit Mishra, before the India series. Both Mushfiq and Tamim had difficulty playing him, Hathuri found him very impressive. Hathuri wanted him as the replacement for Gazi in the very next series, ie in the Tests against Windies. But selectors decided to hold him back and introduce him in a home series. He got his FC/list-A debut against Zim-A (two FC, three list-A match series), against whom he did fairly well. And the rest is now history.
