The Under-19 World Cup is getting started in West Indies after 3 days. Many teams including India in the tournament are taking part, having the roots of the players related to Punjab. If all the players are merged, then the Punjab XI team will stand separately in the tournament.
Fateh Singh and Harkeerat Bajwaare the two players who have a deep connection with Punjab. Harkeerat Bajwa also known as ‘Turbanator of Melbourne’ is going to play for Australia and Fateh Singh will play for England. Fateh Singh will play the role of an all-rounder and Harkeerat Bajwa will play as a mystery spinner for Australia. Fateh Singh is inspired by Ravindra Jadeja and admires his game very much. It is the reason that Fateh Singh is also called “England’s Jadeja.” Whereas Harkeerat Bajwa admires Ashwin’s game. Harkeerat is the youngest player in World Cup and has a long way to go.
Fateh Singh’s father is working as a teacher in England and Harkeerat Bajwa’s father is a cab driver in Australia. Both the families have left Punjab long back. Fateh Singh and Harkeerat Bajwaare have taken huge efforts to be a part of the under-19 cricket team and represent their respective nations. It is a dream come true for them both.
Only three days are left for the under-19 cricket world cup tournament which is going to be held in West Indies. Total 16 teams will fight against each other and will try to achieve victory. It is expected that the team India who has won the cup 4 times earlier will also win this time. Interestingly, this time, the world cup is having many players from the state of Punjab in India representing different countries which consist of Harnoor Singh and Raj Angad Bava. Both the players belong to Chandigarh. Other than this, Anup Chima, Gurnek Singh, Harpal Siani, Paramveer Kharod, and Ramanveer Dhaliwal are all Punjabians from Kanada.
