19 year old Punjabi Australian Tanveer Sangha has made the Australian national cricket team. He is only the 2nd Australian of Indian origin to ever make the national team. Gurinder Sandhu is the first one to make the national team. There have been other Indian Australians who have made levels below the national team level as well. Sangha joins the Aussie team as a leg-spinner bowler and will play at the Australian-New Zealand T20 series this month.
Sangha tells the Times of India:
“I was over the moon when I got the call. It took a while for it to sink in… I did not expect to be selected at such a young age,”
“The school I attended, East Hills Boys High School, was the same that Steve and Mark Waugh had gone to.”
Awesome achievement, and lets watch him play and shine on the cricket field, and support a fellow Asian Australian brother!
