Basil Thampi Biography, Relationship & Career
Basil Thampi is an Indian fast bowler who hails from Kerala. He started playing cricket at a very early age and finally made his first-class introduction from 2014–15 Ranji Trophy season by representing the state of Kerala. He had a wonderful next season and that time helped him catch an IPL contract with the IPL team Gujarat Lions who roped him in at the 2017 participant auctions for a whopping 85 lakhs.
This young fast bowler from Kerala fetched more moolah than the veteran pacers like Manpreet Gony and Munaf Patel in the auctions. He did get a chance to play for the Gujarat Lions in their next encounter against Kings XI Punjab but went for a lot. He then came back strongly and bowled some really great bowling spells. He’s one of the great prospects to acquire the IPL emerging player of the championship 2017 trophy. Though he missed most of the 2017-18 domestic season because of an injury, IPL franchise SRH roped him for his services for 95 Lakhs INR. After warming the bench in an initial couple of games when he finally got his chance, he proved his mettle by bowling with great speed and accuracy. His IPL portfolio already has scalps of legendary players like Hashim Amla, MS Dhoni, and Chris Gayle among various others.
He had been born to Lizy Thampi and M.M. Thampi.
