IPL 2022: Have always idolised Jadeja, he’s my role model, says Vicky Ostwal
IPL 2022: Young India spinner Vicky Ostwal expressed gratitude toward the Delhi Capitals for picking him during the mega auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022.
DC spent Rs 20 lakh for Ostwal at the IPL 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru.
“I have been watching the IPL ever since I was a kid. There was always a dream of playing in the IPL, as it is the biggest platform you can get. I am really that I got picked by Delhi Capitals for this year’s IPL. And I was in my room, watching the auction and my name came very late. I knew that I did well in the T20 U-19 World Cup but at the same time it was a mega auction, so I thought they will go with their same side and there might be some chances that I may not get picked. For two days, I had anxiety and it was really soothing when I got picked by DC,” said Ostwal in a video posted on the IPL website.

“I have always idolised Ravindra Jadeja, he is my role model. The kind of player he is, he contributes in bowling, in batting, and the most important department is fielding. He is the guy that every team wants him in,” said the spinner.
