WATCH : Ravi Bishnoi Bowled A Very Clever Googly To Paul Stirling


Emerging leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi had an immediate impact on the game today in Dublin during the opening match of the 3-T20I series, as he swiftly removed Ireland’s captain Paul Stirling with only his second delivery.

Ravi Bishnoi, a highly promising spinner hailing from India at the age of 22, has gained recognition for his preference for delivering googlies over leg-breaks. Employing one of his signature googlies, he managed to dismiss Ireland’s skipper Stirling.

Paul Stirling is renowned as one of the most formidable T20 opening batsmen globally. Hence, Bishnoi’s ability to secure his wicket within the powerplay phase was a substantial blow to the home team.

Ireland struggled to amass a mere 27 runs in the initial five overs. Anticipating Stirling’s inclination to target the youthful and relatively inexperienced leg-spinner, Bishnoi was prepared for the challenge, drawing on his four-season IPL experience of bowling during the powerplay.

Bishnoi executed a brisk googly just outside the off-stump, which sharply veered into the stumps. Stirling’s ambitious shot on the off-side was misjudged as he left a notable gap between his bat and pad, resulting in the ball crashing into the off-stump. Following this dismissal, Ravi Bishnoi extended his arms in a subdued celebration as Stirling departed, bat tucked under his arm.

Jasprit Bumrah, leading the team, made the choice to field first after winning the toss. Making a comeback after a ten-month hiatus, Bumrah secured two wickets in his inaugural over. Additionally, another returning fast bowler, Prasidh Krishna, managed to dismiss Tector.
