In the midst of the SS Rajan T20I Tournament, organized by the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, a remarkable talent has emerged, captivating the attention of both seasoned players and cricket enthusiasts alike. Balaji, with his unorthodox bowling style and bag of tricks, has become the talk of the town, drawing praise from none other than veteran India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin took to Instagram to express his admiration for Balaji, dubbing him as his “new addiction” after witnessing the bowler’s unique skills in action. Fan Code, the tournament’s lead broadcaster, further amplified Balaji’s spotlight by sharing a video of his remarkable performance during a match between Thiruvarur and Tirupattur.

In the 18th over of the game, Balaji showcased his versatility by seamlessly transitioning between various bowling actions and angles, leaving batters perplexed and struggling to anticipate his deliveries. From coming around the wicket to delivering from over the wicket, Balaji’s ability to adapt and innovate on the spot was evident.

One moment, he was sliding the ball across the batsman with precision, and the next, he was foxing them with unexpected changes in his run-up and grip. Despite the unconventional approach, Balaji remained effective, conceding only singles and keeping the opposition on their toes until the very end of the over.

The sheer unpredictability of Balaji’s bowling has not only caught the eye of Ashwin but has also garnered admiration from fans who eagerly await his next spell on the field.
