Anukul Roy (Indian Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

In every Under-19 World Cup, there are a player or two that stand out for India. In 2018 U-19 World Cup, the scene was entirely different though as the entire Rahul David’s batch of 2018 stood out and delivered when needed. One key figure in that batch was the energetic leggie from Bihar, Anukul Roy. Born in the remote village of Bhirha in Bihar, Anukul Roy gave everything it took to guide India to their 4th Under-19 title. From bowling Australia’s top run getter in the final to defying the famous Pakistani bowling attack with a gritty 33 in the semi-final, Anukul Roy turned the tables around in some emphatic fashion. Mumbai Indians snatched him for a mere INR 10 Lakh, and they’ll be hoping their young gun fires the way he is known to fire.

Career Turning Point

Just 20 years of age and Anukul Roy has himself an IPL contract entering second year. The turning point of his career then should have come even more earlier. It did come last year, when he became the joint highest wicket-taker for India in the ICC U-19 Would Cup while also making crucial contribution with the bat in the lower order. He established himself as a complete match winner in the tournament.

    Lesser Known Facts

  • Anukul Roy suffered an injury months before the 2018 ICC U-19 Work Cup in New Zealand and didn’t get any chance to prove himself for selection in the squad. However, Rahul Dravid showed great belief in the youngster and had him in the squad. Roy duly paid back Dravid’s trust by finishing as India’s key man in the tournament.
  • As Bihar does not contest the Ranji Trophy, Anukul had to relocate to Jharkhand where he started debuted for the state team in 2018-19 Ranji Trophy.
