Leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi made his ODI debut for India in the first fixture of a three-match series against South Africa in Lucknow on Thursday.
The 22-year-old Bishnoi was hit for a four by Proteas opener Quinton de Kock on his very first delivery and ended up conceding 31 runs in his first spell of three overs. However, he began his second spell by getting a well-set de Kock out LBW for 48 with his second ball as the left-handed batter looked to play the reverse sweep.
Bishnoi finished with figures of one for 69 off his eight overs.
Bishnoi, who hails from Jodhpur, made his international debut against West Indies in Kolkata earlier this year, picking two wickets while conceding just 17 runs in four overs and was recognised as the ‘Player of the Match.’
Bishnoi made his domestic debut for Rajasthan against Tamil Nadu in a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match in 2019.
He was a member of the Priyam Garg-led side that finished as runner-up at the ICC U-19 World Cup in 2020 where he finished as the tournament’s highest wicket-taker with 17 scalps.
He was picked up by Punjab Kings for Rs 2 crore for IPL 2020 before being drafted in by the new franchise Lucknow Super Giants for the 2022 season.
