While the last season was disillusioning — the State group's home matches being destroyed by downpour was among the causes — Abhinav led Tamil Nadu to the last in 2015. The left-hander imparted his contemplations to in front of the Ranji season.
Was Abhinav open to captaining Tamil Nadu once more? "Obviously," he answered. "I accept the position as a test. I need to guide cricketers who need assistance. I don't take a gander at captaincy as an extra duty. I like being a leader," he said. "I don't permit captaincy to take a shot at my psyche when I am at the wrinkle. When I am batting, I am only a batsman doing his employment. I don't give different things a chance to trouble me. "At that point, when I bring the field with the group, I have an alternate outlook. "To let you know reality, I appreciate captaincy.
What's more, I am accessible for captaincy." He said he trusted Tamil Nadu had the right pack of cricketers this season. "In the event that you take a gander at the probables, we make them energize ability in the group," he said. On the arrangement of Hrishikesh Kanitkar as the Tamil Nadu mentor, Abhinav said: "He is one of the cleverest mentors around. He is a quiet and gathered individual, and the right man for the occupation."
The southpaw was great in the Duleep Trophy as of late, his best minutes for India Red coming against Green. "I made 77 and 169 in that match. It was another experience playing against the pink ball under lights," he said. Such was Abhinav's dedication that inside 48 hours of being hit on the shoulder by a Pankaj Singh conveyance in the Duleep Trophy last, he flew down to Tiruneveli for Albert Tuti Patriots' elimination round against Dindigul Dragons in the TNPL.
"I needed to do it for my side Tuti Patriots and the TNPL. At the point when the physio gave me the green sign, I was prepared," said Abhinav. The left-hander scored 91 in the elimination round and an unbeaten 82 in the last against Chepauk Super Gillies. "Two years back, I thought batting in Twenty20 cricket was about trudging. Presently I have understood that you can play your ordinary cricket, be certain, play shots and pivot the strike," he said.
Gotten some information about his involvement with Tuti Patriots, Abhinav said: "The environment in the group was great. There was a decent mix of seniors and more youthful players. What's more, our bolster staff — head mentor J.R. Madanagopal, right hand mentor D.J. Gokulakrishnan and guide Monty Desai — was great." "The side demonstrated character. We lost three diversions in succession and afterward went ahead to win five matches straight, including the elimination round and last." What's more, Abhinav made runs when it mattered. He couldn't have coordinated his TNPL exhibitions better.
