Duleep Trophy: Washington Sundar looks to go North

Tomorrow in Bengaluru, Washington Sundar will attempt to show his fitness after a six-month absence as he takes the field with South Zone for their Duleep Trophy semifinal against North Zone. North Zone dominated in their quarterfinal against North East Zone, while South Zone earned direct entry to the semifinals due to their past performance. This game will be important for both present and future India hopefuls, including Washington. The 23-year-old all-rounder from Tamil Nadu has suffered multiple injuries and fitness issues over the past six years, limiting his international appearances to just 55 matches. Meanwhile, West Zone are favored to win their semifinal against Central Zone, which also begins tomorrow. Players such as Cheteshwar Pujara, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, and Sarfaraz Khan all need a career revitalization.
