Karnataka better Karun Nair had become only the second Indian cricketer to score a triple ton in Test cricket when he achieved the feat with an unbeaten 303 against England in Chennai way back in 2016. It was also Nair’s maiden Test ton, and he became the only batter to convert his maiden Test ton into a triple hundred.
However, he was unable to cement his spot in the Indian team as he managed just 71 runs in the next five games. He played his last Test match against Australia in Dharamshala in 2017 and has not been in the fray since then.
Meanwhile, Nair’s personal life seems to be on the right track as he got hitched to his long-time girlfriend and fiance Sanaya Tankariwala. The cricketer had proposed to her last year and got engaged in vacation last June. Jharkhand fast bower Varun Aaron attended Nair’s wedding and took to Instagram to share a picture of the newly married couples.
While speaking about his triple ton, Nair had asked the fraternity to get over it, in 2018.
“It’s been two years already and I think it’s time we moved on. The past is gone and we have to look ahead to what’s ahead; I don’t think it should be a disadvantage at all,” Nair was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
“For all, it can only be an advantage, people know what I can do now, I don’t need to prove it to myself or to anyone that I can score runs at the international level because I have done it before. That kind of self-confidence I have, and I don’t need to prove it to anyone,” the cricketer added.
