The Tripura Cricket Association has praised local leg spinner, Amit Ali, for getting shortlisted for the mega auction of the Indian Premier League 2022.
Ali’s journey of indomitable spirit took off from a remote village located at the fringes of the Indo-Bangla border and landed him on the list of cricketers who were shortlisted for auction.
He debuted in first-class cricket in the year 2021 in List A. Later, he played for Tripura in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and played his maiden match in T20 for Tripura in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Ali hails from the nondescript village of Kamalasagar in Tripura’s Sepahijala district. After the barbed fences were extended along the Indo-Bangla borders, part of his village, including his residence, was incidentally excluded from the Indian side. Although Ali is an Indian citizen, he had to cross the fence to attend his cricket coaching.
According to Ali’s parents, from his school years, he developed an enormous interest in sports and took the solid decision to pursue his career as a sportsman in cricket.
Ali secured the 472nd rank in the list. His impeccable skills at turning the ball in the crease finally gave his life a positive spin.
