CSK vs RCB: CSK youngster Sameer Rizvi impresses in practice match, smashes 55 off 20 balls

Even though it was a practice match, Rizvi would draw a lot of confidence from the inning and is likely to carry that confidence forward in IPL.

There has been a lot of talk about Chennai Super Kings youngster Sameer Rizvi. Rizvi has been showing a lot of promise in the domestic circuit, smashing bowlers all around the park to score runs at a quick pace. However, if there was any doubt about whether Rizvi would be able to replicate that form in CSK colours, it has been put to rest in the team’s intra-squad practice match. Rizvi scored a brilliant half-century in the match, and it can be expected that the young batter would be a part of the team’s XI during the CSK vs RCB match.

Rizvi on Tuesday was unstoppable as Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team played a practice match among themselves. The right-handed batter played some fluent shots to score 55 off just 20 balls. Even though it was a practice match, Rizvi would draw a lot of confidence from the inning and is likely to carry that confidence forward in IPL.

The 20-year-old, who was bought at a whopping Rs 8.4 crore at the IPL 2024 Auction, is showing his potential and has impressed the CSK management too.

CSK coach Mike Hussey backed Rizvi to take Ambati Rayadu’s role in the future. “Sameer Rizvi can play the Ambati Rayudu role in CSK. Rayudu is a seasoned campaigner, whereas Rizvi is just starting out in his IPL career,” Hussey said.
