Debutant Akash Deep in agony, pacer denied maiden wicket after no-ball

Debutant pacer Akash Deep clean bowled Zak Crawley with a beauty, only to realise that it was a no-ball in IND vs ENG 4th Test in Ranchi

Pacer Akash Deep managed to grab his first Test wicket in the 3rd over, until it was ruled a no-ball. Making his debut in IND vs ENG 4th Test, a front-foot no ball denied the pacer his maiden Test wicket. Zak Crawley was the batter who managed to survive the scare.

Memorable to misery for Akash Deep in IND vs ENG 4th Test

Akash’s fiery delivery managed to brush past Crawley’s inside edge. It went on to crash into the off-stump, sending it cartwheeling. However, a front foot no ball cut the celebrations short for the debutant.

The pacer had a brilliant outing for India ‘A’ in the unofficial multiple-day series against England Lions, where he took 13 wickets.

Who is Akash Deep?

Born in 1996 in Dehri, Bihar, Akash Deep travelled to Bengal in pursuit of a cricket career. Unlike many star players, he did not have the encouragement from his father.

But his determination to earn a name in cricket eventually opened the doors. Since making debut in 2019 for Bengal, Akash Deep has played 30 First Class matches, bagging 104 wickets at an impressive average of 23.58. He also has four five-wicket hauls.
