Vidarbha fast bowler Aditya Thakare, who recently made his debut against Delhi in the Ranji Trophy final, which Vidarbha won, has made a place in Team India’s ICC U-19 World Cup Squad. As per reports, Thakare will be replacing injured Bengal bowler Ishan Porel. Thakare will fly to New Zealand soon to join the Indian U-19 cricket team. Porel apparently injured himself during a match against Australia in Sydney, which was won by India by 100 runs.

Though Aditya has played just one match in first-class cricket, he impressed with his line and length in the Ranji final against Delhi. Aditya Thakare is only the second player from Vidarbha to make it to the Indian ICC U-19 World Cup Squad, the other being Vidarbha captain Faiz Fazal. Fazal made it to the U-19 squad in 2004 but could not compete in the tournament due to an injury. He was replaced by Shikhar Dhawan, who eventually made it to the national side.
