‘I want to break into the Indian Test team’
Punjab medium-pacer Manpreet Gony hit the headlines after he made his ODI debut against Hong Kong way back in 2008 (Asia Cup) in Pakistan. He had been selected in the Indian team after he became the highest wicket taker for MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in the first IPL. Though Gony has been a regular with Punjab in domestic cricket, an international return has been eluding him since. But after doing well in Ranji matches this season, the 29-year-old has made the cut for the India A team that would play a practice match against the visiting Australian team in Chennai ahead of their Test series.
In a chat with Sportline, Gony talks about his conversation with the Indian captain MS Dhoni and bowling coach Joe Dawes recently, how crucial will it be for him to bowl at the Australian batsmen and if there can still be an international return for him.
You bowled during the nets at the PCA Stadium in Mohali to the Indian batsmen on the eve of the ODI between India and England. In the process one of your deliveries hit Indian captain MS Dhoni's finger. What conversation
