Chama Milind is one of the first names that pop up when you talk about match-winners with the ball in Indian domestic cricket.
|IPL Team||Royal Challengers Bangalore|
The left-arm medium-pacer from Hyderabad, born on 4 September 1994, is one of the well-known faces in domestic circles. He made his List A and T20 debuts in Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2012-13 and later First Class debut in Ranji Trophy 2013-14.
Chama Milind shot to limelight in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2014-15, where he picked 17 scalps while averaging just under 15.00. He has a T20 hattrick to his name which he registered against Tamil Nadu in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2012-13. Also, he was a part of India’s U-19 squad for the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2014.
Though he has a fair amount of experience in the longer formats and is adept with plenty of variations, it’s the limited-overs that have brought the best in him. From his recent performances, Chama had a run to remember during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021-22, where he finished with 18 scalps in 7 matches while averaging a miserly 11.61 and maintaining an economy of 8.41, and best bowling figures of 5/8. The left-armer continued his form in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021-22, finishing as the highest wicket-taker for Hyderabad, with 8 wickets in 5 matches at an average of 26.87.
Not to mention, he was at his lethal best in the 2020-21 edition of the domestic one-dayers, where he scalped 10 wickets across 4 matches at an average of 21.30. In light of his consistent breakthroughs over a year and a half, Chama caught the attention of two franchises in IPL 2022 auction – Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore and was finally handed a contract by the latter.
Chama was a part of Sunrisers Hyderabad from 2014-15 and later Delhi Daredevils from 2016-17. However, he didn’t get an opportunity to showcase his talents in each of the experiences. The wait lasted for almost five seasons when the Hyderabad-born was finally picked by the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2022 mega auction. A learner at heart who strives for improvement with each passing day, Chama could be an asset to the franchise in the upcoming seasons.
