Basil Thampi (Indian Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

Regarded as one of India’s most promising pacer after Jasprit Bumrah, Basil Thampi gets himself prepared for another season of IPL. After having a horrible start to his career with SRH, Thampi will look to mend the bad memories with some positive performances this time. He has got all what it takes for a fast bowler to stay there in the longer run. His accuracy while bowling Yorkers is very rare, and makes him a useful resource during the death overs for any T20 franchise. However, with the kind of season he had last time around, SRH won’t be risking it with him too often. Chances for Thampi will be few, it will be up to him how he takes them and makes the most out of them.
