Het, Priyajeet keep Gujarat’s tradition alive

Ajit  Bezbaruah Ahmedabad:

State Has Regularly Produced Quality Wicketkeepers and Seamers; Kush Joins Duo In India U-16 Camp
When wicketkeeper-batsman Het Patel and medium-pace bowler Priyajeet Jadeja got a call to join the India U-16 camp currently underway in Dharamshala, they actually kept the tradition of coach Tarak Trivedi’s academy, of producing gloves man and seam bowler on a regular basis, alive. Het and Priyajeet is the third wicketkeeperseam bowler pair, in the last six years, to make a mark on the national scene after the Avi Barot-Harshal Patel and the Smit Patel-Rush Kalaria duos.

Products of Trivedi’s Gujarat Cricket Institute, both Avi and Harshal played for India U-19 teams while Smit and Rush featured in the Indian U-19 World Cup winning squad of 2012. Currently both Avi and Harshal play for Haryana in Ranji Trophy , while Smit and Rush are representing Gujarat.

Talking about Het and Priyajeet, Gujarat Cricket Association’s (GCA head coach Vijay Patel said: “They are extremely talented kids. Het is, in fact keeping Gujarat’s wicketkeeping tradi tion alive and we are looking at him as a future prospect after Parthiv (Patel and Smit. Priyajit’s control over his bowling is exemplary and he can gener ate good pace as well. His height is a big advantage for him.“

Interestingly, Het started as a bowl ing all-rounder when he first came to ing all-rounder when he first came to Trivedi’s academy 10 years ago as a six year-old. He was doing well for his Vi dyanagr High School, Usmanpura team but Trivedi one day asked him to take up wicketkeeping, much to the surprise of Het’s family. There was some objection from Het’s mother Gop but his father Jignesh went by what the coach advised and Het started climbing newer heights everyday.

“I was so impressed by his reflexes and body movement that I could foresee his future as a successful wicketkeeper batsman,“ said Trivedi and added: “He also enjoys challenges. He bailed Guja rat out twice this season with two big hundreds. He also works a lot on his weaknesses and doesn’t stop till he rectifies his mistakes.“

Priyajeet, on the other hand, blossomed late. It was his brother Milind, the serious cricketer in the family, who saw the spark and introduced him to the St Kabir school team coach. It didn’t take long for Priyajeet, with a 6ft 2inch frame, to make an impact in the interdistrict games. But it was in the last twothree years that he actually started to show promise of a bright future ahead.

“Priyajeet is a quick learner and he can study the conditions and the batsmen nicely. That he can swing the ball both ways is his biggest asset. A very in telligent guy, he scored 90 per cent in board exam, he is not somebody who is too dependant on the nature of the wicket and can keep on bowling a par ticular line or a length all day long,“ added Trivedi.

Left-arm spinner over from Palanpur

Left-arm spinner Kush Patel is the third player from Gujarat called for the India camp. He idolizes Daniel Vettori and also looks to bowl like the New Zealander. He impressed everybody with his loop and guile in the by lanes of Palanpur. In his first season in inter-district competition Kush picked up 20 wickets in five matches. He again bagged 34 wickets in five matches in the next and also emerged the highest wicket taker, with 20 wickets from six matches, in West Zone this season while representing Gujarat in the Vijay Merchant Trophy.

“Kush comes from a small town but has a big heart. He has a beautiful loop and is not scared to flight the ball at all.He also comes across as someone with a matured head on a young shoulder,“ said Vijay Patel, the GCA chief coach.
