Watch: The Big-Hitting Ability Of Indian U19 Star Rajvardhan Hangargekar

India is one cricketing nation that boasts incredible cricketing infrastructure. This is one of the main reasons why the team does so well in international cricket. Almost every year, there is a youngster or two who makes a mark with fine performances. Usually, it is either at the U19 level or in the Indian Premier League that the young stars get the limelight. The latest player who has impressed many is Maharashtra’s U19 cricketer Rajvardhan Hangarekar. The player is representing India in the ongoing U19 World Cup. In this article, we take a look at a clip that showcases the big-hitting ability of Indian U19 star Rajvardhan Hangargekar.

The six-hitting skills of Rajvardhan Hangargekar

Although Team India has brilliant timers of the ball, there are very few batsmen who are known for their brute hitting skills. This is affecting the squad in the T20 format. Nevertheless, India does have hope in the form of the current Indian U19 Team’s bowling all-rounder. While he can get into the team solely based on his bowling skills, Rajvardhan also adds value with his big-hitting skills. In the recent U19 WC game against Ireland, the player scored 39 runs from just 17 deliveries. He added impetus to India’s batting innings. Later, he also took a wicket. In the below clip, we witness the cricketer’s big-hitting abilities:

A player for the future

It is high time that India grooms players based on roles in a playing XI. This way, rather than always focussing on depth in either department, India can have quality in each of the slots. That said, multi-utility players offer immense value to an XI, especially in limited-overs cricket. Rajvardhan is someone who can do that for India. While his bowling skills are developing well, if he can add more technical proficiency to his batting, India can have a fine seam-bowling all-rounder for the future.
