PROFILE

Nalkande may be a skiddy young fast bowler from Vidarbha, who is simply five first-class matches old. He started off as a bowler, but began honing his skills with the bat and evolved as a fine all-rounder. He was picked within the India U-19 team for the youth Asia cup and also made it to the probables of the planet Cup squad, but couldn’t make the dig the ultimate squad. Nalkande showed his might both with bat and ball within the U-23 CK Nayudu Trophy which brought him into the limelight. Vidarbha’s selectors rewarded him by picking him within the Vijay Hazare squad and he had an honest debut against Maharashtra – learning 2/26 and scored an unbeaten 53 while chasing, guiding Vidarbha to a fantastic win.

He then made his Ranji Trophy debut, coincidentally against Maharashtra. Only two games old, he’s shown great resolve. Darshan was called up to the Kings XI Punjab trails and displayed his all-round skills which prompted the franchise to swoop him up within the auctions.
