Baba Indrajith Facts
- Baba Indrajith’s twin brother Baba Aparajith was one of the stars of India’s triumph at the 2012 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Indrajith too was in contention for a place in India’s squad for the tournament but could not make the cut. Although mightily pleased for his brother, Indrajith has often stated that this incident has served as a source of both hurt and motivation throughout his career. He then worked his way into becoming one of the mainstays of Tamil Nadu’s middle order.
- He had first come into the spotlight on the Indian domestic scene in September 2017 when he had cracked a double century, his first in first-class cricket while representing India Red in the 2017–18 edition of the Duleep Trophy (a domestic first-class cricket competition originally contested by teams representing geographical zones of India which since 2016–17 has been played by teams chosen by the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) selectors). The double century was all the more special as it had come against the pink ball, a novelty on the Indian domestic scene at that time. He had followed this up with a remarkable knock of 152 runs against Mumbai.
- In July 2018, he had been selected to represent the India Green squad for the 2018–19 edition of the Duleep Trophy. In the opening match of the tournament, he had played a critical hand by scoring 109 runs. He had finished as the leading run-scorer for India Green in the tournament, with 149 runs to his name in just 2 matches.
- His breakthrough performance, though, came in the 2018–19 season of the Ranji Trophy (the premier domestic first-class competition in India) where he was the leading run-scorer for Tamil Nadu in the tournament with 641 runs in just 8 matches. In that season, he had also been rewarded with the full-time captaincy of a young Tamil Nadu side. As if to celebrate this promotion, he had scored an unbeaten knock of 103 runs against Madhya Pradesh in Tamil Nadu’s opening encounter of the season.
- He had topped the run-scoring charts for Tamil Nadu in the 2021-22 season of the Ranji Trophy as well, with 396 runs in just 3 matches, at an astonishing average of 99. He had also accumulated 3 centuries in those 3 matches.
