Sachin Tendulkar, the God of cricket, revealed why Pakistani batsmen are afraid of Debashish Mohanty’s bowling, on the show ‘What the Duck 3’. Virender Sehwag is also a guest in the show.
Debashish Mohanty was a right-arm medium-fast bowler who coupled pace to his naturally lanky frame. He was one of the few in the world who has an uncanny ability to swing the ball both ways. It was something that not many bowlers of the past could pull off.
Debashish Mohanty is the only Indian to feature in the World Cup logo, probably only one to be featured. Mohanty, along with Harvinder Singh was instrumental in winning one of the Sahara Cup series against Pakistan in Toronto in the 1990s.
The torchbearer of cricketers from Odisha who tried to make a mark in world cricket. Forget his frisky, over-animated bowling action. Forget his World Cup tour to England where he scared batsman with his dynamic run-up. Just remember he’s one of those few players from Odisha to have made Ivy League of Indian cricketers. Watch the full episode here.
Debashish Mohanty has been appointed the coach for Odisha Ranji team. He coached the East Zone team and East Zone created history by winning their first Duleep Trophy. He is widely regarded one of the genuine fast bowler India has produced ever. He gained fame for his accurate line, length and ability to swing the ball both the ways.
