96 Not Out is Better Than 96 Out of 100 Out - Coach Senthilnathan Advice to Washington Sundar

Indian cricketer Washington Sundar had a heart-breaking moment when M. Siraj got out for a duck To Ben Stokes and being left unbeaten on 96 as India bundled for 365 runs in the fourth Test match.

He has made a third-half century in Test cricket, though it was a chance for maiden Test century, Washington Sundar had no expression on his face as he walked back to the Pavillion.

Senthilnathan was impressed by a 13-year-old Sundar at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai, as he played pacers with ease.

Senthilnathan molded Sundar into the cricketer that he is today and encouraged the 21-year-old left-handed batsman to continue bowling off-spin.

“I had a brief chat after the Test match with him and told him, 96 not out is much better than 96 out or even 100 out’. He could have got out going for his century. He replied ‘No problem, sir. They (Ishant and Siraj) tried their best,” Senthilnathan told Sportskeeda in an exclusive chat.

“He is the same whether he is beaten, hits a four or a six, or gets a hundred. No emotions, no answering back. It will be difficult for the opponents to have a go at him. These are very good qualities to play at a higher level. Washington shows his aggression from inside by staying long at the crease,” Senthilnathan added.

Senthilnathan is excited to see how Washington Sundar performs in the England T20I series which begins from Friday in Ahmedabad.
