Indian cricketer, Divyansh Joshi is the first player from Mizoram to represent India in South Africa. Hailing from Gautam Budh Nagar from Greater Noida, this right-handed batsman is selected in the Under-19 squad for the World Cup. He came into the spotlight giving his outstanding performance in Vinoo Mankad Trophy that eventually earned him a ticket to South Africa for the upcoming ICC U19 World Cup. He scored over 250 runs and took 14 wickets while bowling in the Vinoo Mankad Trophy.
He was also selected for the Challenger Trophy due to his incredible performance. Joshi’s U19 coach Murtaza believes that he can become the next Hardik Pandya of India with his skills.
Divyansh is graduated from Dehradun. His father is an engineer in Alpha-2 and his mother is a housewife. The nation is interested to see how the tables would turn for this young talent to showcase his skills in the upcoming events.
Divyansh feels that his selection from Mizoram is an inspiration to all the people from there. He had been selected in U-14, U-16, U-19 State teams and now in team India. Joshi is not the native of Mizoram but he was hired by their representative to become the first cricketer from any of the five northeastern states to represent India. He is a big fan of Hardik Pandya and wants to compete with him one day.
