State mates happy for Vinay

“I am very happy for Vinay, he totally deserved to be picked,” said former India paceman Venkatesh Prasad. “I’ve played with him, been coach of State side and his work ethic and dedication are amazing. He is a very hard working lad and always wants to be in thick of the action. It’s a fantastic opportunity and I hope the team management makes him play because he can be a great asset.”

Former Indian left-arm spinner Sunil Joshi said Vinay should have got the call up earlier. “I have been watching Vinay for the last 5-6 seasons and the way he has matured is simply amazing. As a fellow mofussil cricketer, who has faced lots of hardships to reach this level, I can understand what it means to get a India call up.  He should now just concentrate on making the most of this opportunity.”
