Uttarakhand head coach Manish Jha told about Akash, ‘When he came for trial in 2019. We were all very impressed. He is also fast with smooth action. One of them was the X-Factor. Wasim Bhai (Wasim Jaffer) took him straight away and gave him a chance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali match against Karnataka. Then when Ranji Trophy got canceled during Covid and I took over as the head coach, I told him that he will play in all the three formats. I assured him that he will get a chance to play all the matches.
He said, ‘He has played a lot of tennis ball cricket. Speed was there but accuracy was lacking. He used to experiment a lot with his bowling. My only concern was if you can bowl fast and straight then why are you bowling slow. Slowly he got himself under control. The interesting thing here is that last year Madhwal joined Mumbai Indians as a replacement for Suryakumar Yadav due to injury and now he has become Rohit Sharma’s favorite bowler.
