Washington Sundar, the renegade all-rounder, said two years ago after his debut in India, he had become keener, both in terms of his awareness and in terms of his abilities.
The 19-year-old, who has not played international cricket since November last year, gets the chance to re-play the national colors after being named for his upcoming tour of the West Indies in the Indian T20I squad.
Before the team moves to the United States of America, where the first two games of the three-game series take place, Washington considers how important it is to take advantage of its opportunities in the long term.
“There has been much to learn in recent years, and the more I play, the more I’ll learn,” he told the Times of India.
“It’s a great opportunity to play for India at such a young age, but when I think about the competition and start to expect too much, it gets harder, I just have to concentrate on the present and work on my skills.” I practice every day. I invested a lot of hard work and effort in each session. I am convinced that my hard work will pay off. “

Washington has already spent a good part of the month in the Caribbean as part of the India A team. Despite having little impact on the wickets, Washington sent off economic slogans in three games with four scalps and fought 45 out of 52 balls to reach a late setback in the fourth game in a 299 chase before India finally did lost by five runs.
“The India A-Tour went very well for me, both in building confidence and in playing time, especially after the injury-related break last year,” he said. The conditions and the players I met were very good different from what I’m used to. “
