Prasidh Krishna ODI Debut
His ODI debut happened on 23rd March 2021 against the touring English team in Pune, Maharashtra. It was almost a dream debut for him as he took 4 wickets including important ones like that of Jason Roy and Ben Stokes. He played an important role in India’s win in this match.
The English had won the toss and decided to field first. India put up a strong total of 317 runs thanks to the great performance of their top-order batsmen. Shikhar Dhawan (98 runs off 106 balls), Virat Kohli (56 runs off 60 balls), KL Rahul (62 runs off 43 runs), and Krunal Pandya (58* runs off 31 balls).
Ben Stokes took 3 wickets and was the most successful bowler. The English team was all dismissed in just 42.1 overs at the score of 251 runs and Jonny Bairstow was the top scorer (94 runs in 66 balls).
Prasidh Krishna IPL Debut
He made his IPL debut on 6th May 2018 against the Mumbai Indians. In his debut IPL match, he didn’t manage to take a wicket and also was quite expensive in terms of economy rate (9.80 runs per over). But this shouldn’t be taken as that he was the most expensive bowler (it was Piyush Chawla).
KKR had won the toss and decided to bowl first. Mumbai Indians made a strong score of 181 runs with the valuable contributions of Suryakumar Yadav (59 runs in 39 balls), Evin Lewis (43 runs in 28 balls) and Hardik Pandya (35 runs in 20 balls).
KKR in response only were able to score 168 runs and hence, lost the match to MI. Their high scorers were Robin Uthappa (54 runs in 35 balls), Dinesh Karthik (36 runs in 26 balls) and Nitish Rana (31 runs in 27 balls). Overall, not a debut that anyone aims for.
