He was not retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore ahead of IPL 2022 and was not even considered for the tour of South Africa. However, Washington Sundar has given a befitting reply to his doubters.
He scored a magnificent 70 runs off just 61 balls against Saurashtra in the semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy to take Tamil Nadu to the finale of the tournament. Tamil Nadu would face Himachal Pradesh in the title clash match.
Overall, he has amassed 147 runs and dismissed 15 batters. He is expected to travel to South Africa for a three-match ODI series next year. Sundar would be on the transfer list of all the franchises at the time of mega IPL auction.
