Jagadeesha Suchith Introduction
Jagadeesha Suchith’s career started out a bit differently from most of the players. Normally, a player has to battle it out at the age level teams of their district or state and then get a chance at senior level domestic cricket. If they do well for their state team in domestic competitions, they earn the chance of bagging a place in the Indian Premier League.
Suchith is one of those rare players, who was selected for IPL even before he made his first-class debut. He has always been a very talented cricketer. His slow left-arm orthodox spin caught the attention of legendary Indian spinner, Anil Kumble. Back in 2014, Kumble was associated with Mumbai Indians and was overseeing how the domestic players were performing in the trails. Suchith stood out for him, and the player soon found himself in the Mumbai Indians set up.
