Ravi Bishnoi came into this world and grew up in the Birami village of Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Because of the lack of cricket culture and facilities in West Rajasthan, he, along with his friends and with the help of two coaches built a cricket academy named Spartans Cricket Academy where they themselves did all the mason work owing to financial difficulties so that he could train.
Ravi Bishnoi’s gleaming eyes won’t tell you. But he has endured life on rugged terrain since setting out to be a cricketer from Jodhpur. Famous for its forts and palaces, the Rajasthan town has not produced an India player. As a 15-year-old, Bishnoi would help offload black soil, roll it into a wicket and water it, and pick selection trials over school examinations against the wishes of his father (headmaster in a government school) in a conservative family.
He was snubbed for the U-16 trials once and for the U-19 trial twice by the selectors before his coaches asked them to give him another chance and finally got selected for the U-19 Rajasthan squad. In March 2018, he was called up by Rajasthan Royals as a net bowler.
Six years on, the wiry spinner and his two coaches-cum-mentors Pradyot Singh and Shahrukh Pathan, both are former players who gave up private jobs to hone their coaching skills and teach cricket—spent a nostalgic Wednesday evening amid the din raised by a motley crowd in the community that had assembled to celebrate his India selection. “It feels like all our toil has been rewarded. It takes time to sink in, that we have an India player amongst us,” Singh says.
“Ravi can read a pitch by having one look,” Singh adds with pride. This quality from the early grind also helps Bishnoi quickly identify the landing spot for his googly on various pitches. A new-age leg-spinner, it’s Bishnoi’s wrong ‘uns’ that have bagged him the coveted India cap, after displaying his skills for two years in IPL. Bishnoi also took a hat-trick against Andhra Pradesh in the recent Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 tournament.
He made his Twenty20 debut for Rajasthan in the 2018–19 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on 21 February 2019. He made his List A debut on 27 September 2019, for Rajasthan in the 2019–20 Vijay Hazare Trophy. In October 2019, he was named in India’s squad for the 2019–20 Deodhar Trophy.
Indian Premier League
In December 2019, in the 2020 IPL auction, Kings XI Punjab retained Bishnoi ahead of the 2020 Indian Premier League. On September 20, 2020, Bishnoi went for his IPL debut against Delhi Capitals and got selected by Rishabh Pant as his maiden wicket and finished with the bowling figures 1/22 in four overs, but ended up on the losing side. He finished the season with 12 wickets and was nominated for the Emerging Player award.
In February 2022, Bishnoi was drafted in by the new franchise Lucknow SuperGiants ahead of the 2022 Indian Premier League tournament.
In December 2019, he earned the title in India’s squad for the 2020 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. On 21 January 2020, in India’s match while having a face off Japan, Bishnoi accomplished four wickets without conceding a run, before finishing his spell with four wickets for five runs from eight overs, with India winning by ten wickets, and he was named the man of the match. He finished the tournament as the leading wicket-taker.
In January 2022, Bishnoi was named in India’s One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) squads for their home series against the West Indies. He made his T20I debut on 16 February 2022, for India against the West Indies cricket team, taking two wickets for 17 runs and being named the player of the match.
