IPL 2022: Ravi Shastri ‘SUPER IMPRESSED’ with Rahul Tripathi, says ‘he is not very far from India Call-UP’

IPL 2022: Why Ravi Shastri thinks Tripathi deserves India call-up?

While Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Shastri stated that the SRH star is right in the mix for a potential India debut due to his fearless mentality. “If someone doesn’t get up from the bench or gets up from the wrong side of the bed and gets injured, this guy can be slotted in straight away. He can go at No. 3 or 4, he’s a dangerous player, and should be in the mix. If he’s performing season after season, I’m sure the selectors will be watching that very, very closely and giving him his due.”

IPL 2022: Rahul Tripathi makes the number three spot his own for SRH

  • Tripathi has scored 393 runs in 13 IPL games for SRH this season. He has scored these runs at an impressive strike rate of 161.73
  • It’s the most anyone has scored for a batter walking in at the number three position. This is also the first time that Tripathi has batted at the number three position in IPL
  • This is also the second time in consecutive years that Tripathi has scored over 300 runs in the IPL
  • Shastri feels the SRH batter is a complete player due to his all-around game. He has superb shot-making ability, temperament, all-around game, and fearlessness.
  • Tripathi can also play pace and spin brilliantly. He can also drop anchor and play attacking innings from the onset
  • With India selectors set to rest a few senior players for the South Africa T20I series, Tripathi might be picked due to super form

Shastri feels Tripathi is very consistent and is not overawed by any situation whatsoever. “No question about that,” Shastri said. “It’s not that one swallow that makes summer, he’s been around for a bit and what I like about his game is his fearlessness, and he’s got a tag of being a known quantity and someone the opposition wants to get out quickly. Irrespective of that, he comes out and plays his game and his shot-making ability, the all-around game that he has, he’s not overawed by any opposition or by any bowler, which is great to see.”
