Yesterday was a proud day for Odisha. While IPL has been the gala event for cricket for the past 14 years, there has been a scarcity of players from Odisha to represent this marquee event. Hardly one or two players from the state has been able to make into the auction pool for these many years and there has been no luck for them as no IPL them have shown interest in them.
However, the drought finally ended yesterday. Odia cricket player Subhranshu Senapati has been finally picked by one of the most successful franchise of IPL Chennai Super Kings. Senapati will now be under the guidance of some of the greats of cricket like MS Dhoni, Stephen Fleming, Jadeja, Moin Ali and the others.
Keonjhar born Senapati made his debut for Odisha in 2016-17 Ranji season. Senapati, 25, is a middle-order batsman and is also handy with the ball. He was the leading run-scorer for Odisha in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy, with 427 runs in six matches. Senapati was also the leading run-scorer for Odisha in the 2018–19 Ranji Trophy, with 617 runs in nine matches.
