Former India U-19 pacer Saurabh Netravalkar is now US cricket captain

It is often said that cricket is a game of uncertainties and a match is never over till the last ball is bowled. 27-year-old Saurabh Netravalkar can very much relate to this. A former Mumbai medium pacer and India U-19 cricketer, the 27-year-old software engineer left for the US to study computer science in Cornell University after he felt that it would be difficult for him to make it as a cricketer in the big league.

And now, Netravalkar has been appointed captain of the US national cricket team. Netravalkar who was India’s highest wicket-taker in the 2010 U-19 World Cup, also played Ranji Trophy for a season before realizing that he wasn’t going to break into the top level and thus looked to focus on academics.

“I gave two years full-time to cricket but felt I wasn’t making it to the next level,” he said. In Cornell for a master’s degree, he rediscovered his love for the game and that continued as he joined Oracle as a software engineer.
