IND vs WI: “You kept fighting, kept performing” – Irfan Pathan congratulates Deepak Hooda for his inclusion in the ODI Squad

Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan, who is currently playing in Legends League Cricket, shares his opinion on this. He has congratulated Baroda all-rounder Deepak Hooda on his maiden international call-up in the Indian side. The Baroda-born all-rounder, who switched states due to clashes with Krunal Pandya (then Baroda captain), may get a chance to represent his country. Irfan Pathan praised his efforts and shared a tweet, saying that, 

“You came out of a tough phase, you kept fighting, kept performing. So proud @HoodaOnFire, congratulations. Make the most of it. Congratulations to Ravi Bishnoi and Avesh khan too. #INDvWI.”

Performance in Domestic championship

The Indian team has been struggling in the middle order for a while now. And Deepak Hooda has been looked at as a potential middle-order batsman who can also finish off games. He is also a more than useful bowler who bowls off-spin. After changing his state, Deepak has performed quite well for Rajasthan in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for Rajasthan. 

Deepak Hooda scored 198 runs at an average of 33 with a strike rate of 95.65 in six Vijay Hazare Trophy matches last month. He also scored a heroic 109 (109) against Karnataka in a knockout match at the KL Saini Ground.

At the time of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Hooda had amassed 294 runs in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy at an average and strike rate of 73.50 and 168 respectively to finish the tournament as its second-highest run-scorer. Read more about our cricket prediction app for phone.
