Who is Varun Chakravarthy?
Cricket fans are asking each other who is Varun Chakravarthy? Here we have got the answers of your rigorous questions.
Varun Chakravarthy started his journey in cricket when he was 13 years old, and until 17 was a wicket keeper-batsman. Then, after being rejected several times in age-group cricket, he ditched the game and pursued a degree in architecture at the SRM University in Chennai. After completing the five-year course, Varun worked as a freelance architect, but playing tennis-ball cricket rekindled his passion. So he quit his job and joined CromBest Cricket Club as a seam-bowling allrounder.
But a knee injury he sustained during the second match relegated him to the sidelines and prompted him to become a spinner. Having copped punishment from a bevy of batsmen in tennis-ball cricket on 18-yard pitches, Varun expanded his repertoire, transforming himself into a mystery spinner.
Mystery spinner? Are you kidding me?
Nope. After returning from injury, he signed with Jubilee Cricket Club in the fourth division of the robust Chennai League, and honed all his variations there. In 2017-18, Varun bagged 31 wickets in seven games at an average of 8.26 and economy rate of 3.06 in the one-day competition. He also pitched in with the bat, his unbeaten 74 sealing Jubilee’s one-wicket win over Prithvi Cricket Club in February earlier this year.
So, what are his variations?
According to Varun, he has seven variations:
– Carrom ball
– A slider aimed at the toes of batsmen to york them
What’s his claim to fame?
Tamil Nadu Premier League 2018, where he spun Siechem Madurai Panthers to their maiden title. Even before enjoying a breakout season in the TNPL, he had bowled in the Chennai Super Kings nets.
He spent four days with CSK side in the 2018 season before the franchise’s home games were moved out of Chennai to Pune. About two weeks later, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik and team analyst AR Srikkanth called Varun to bowl at the KKR nets, where he exchanged notes with Sunil Narine and his spin coach Carl Crowe.
