Baba Aparajith Bio

Baba Aparajith, born on July 8, 1994, in Tamil Nadu, India, is a talented cricket player known for his exceptional batting and off-spin bowling skills. Aparajith made his mark in the cricketing world at an early age, showcasing his immense potential and determination to succeed.

Having grown up in Tamil Nadu, Aparajith was fortunate to receive top-notch coaching from S Balaji, who helped shape his skills and technique. Alongside his twin brother, B Indrajith, and all-rounder Vijay Shankar, Aparajith honed his craft in age-group cricket, setting the foundation for his future success.

Aparajith burst into the limelight during the 2012 Under-19 World Cup held in Australia. He played a crucial role in India Under-19s’ championship victory, amassing 171 runs and taking five wickets. His impressive performances earned him the prestigious Man-of-the-Match awards in the quarter-final against Pakistan U-19s and the semi-final against New Zealand U-19s, showcasing his ability to shine under pressure.

Following his Under-19 success, Aparajith made his debut in domestic cricket, playing for Tamil Nadu in the prestigious Ranji Trophy at the tender age of 17. He quickly established himself as a technically correct batsman, with a penchant for elegant cover drives. As the young batting leader of the Tamil Nadu team, Aparajith played a crucial role in their success, particularly after the departure of established players like M Vijay and S Badrinath.

In the 2013-14 season, Aparajith demonstrated his immense potential by scoring his maiden double-century. He achieved this remarkable feat while representing South Zone against West Zone in the Duleep Trophy. Not content with just one double-century, he followed it up with another one for Tamil Nadu against Services, cementing his reputation as a dependable run-scorer.

Aparajith’s talent did not go unnoticed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) either. He played for the Chennai Super Kings in the 2013 season, where he learned from some of the best in the business. His impressive skills made him a sought-after player, and in the 2014 player auction, he was bought by the Chennai Super Kings for INR 10 lakh. Later, he represented the Rising Pune Supergiants in the same league.

In addition to his commendable batting abilities, Aparajith is also known for his off-spin bowling skills. Although he hasn’t had many opportunities to showcase his skills at the domestic level due to the presence of other spin options in the Tamil Nadu team, he did impress with a remarkable five-wicket haul against Australia A in Chennai in 2015.

Aparajith’s consistent performances earned him a place in the India A side, where he continued to impress with his solid batting technique and reliable off-spin bowling. He has been an important member of the team, displaying his versatility and adaptability in different formats of the game.

Overall, Baba Aparajith is a talented and hardworking cricketer who continues to make a name for himself in the Indian cricketing circles. With his immense skill set and determination, he undoubtedly has a bright future ahead of him.
