Thus far, he has picked up eight wickets, conceding just 20 runs. The 23-year-old left-arm spinner had a lean patch in 2018 with just three wickets from five matches. His team also did not fare well as it finished at the bottom of the eight-team standings. This edition’s opener also did not begin on expected lines for CSG as it went down by 10 runs to Dindigul Dragons.


Alexandar’s performance of 4-0-11-3 was overshadowed by DD left-arm spinner M Silambarasan (3-0-13-4). In CSG’s next game against Ruby Trichy Warriors, he bettered his own showing, bagging a superb five-wicket haul. He ended up with the best bowling analysis in TNPL history (4-0-9-5).


Alexandar stated that the desire to succeed led to the display. “I was hungry to do well. I took just three wickets in five games last year despite taking 20 in the preceding two years. I was ashamed that I was a main bowler and did not perform,” he told reporters on Tuesday. Senior batsman KH Gopinath revealed his teammate has been bowling well in practice sessions and said his form augurs well for the team.


“He is really coming up well this season. He was good in the first two editions of TNPL but unfortunately we had a bad time last year. Now he is coming back again. It is a good sign for the side,” said the 31-year-old top order batsman. Alexandar credits experienced players Vijay Shankar, Murugan Ashwin and coach Hemang Badani for returning to top form.


“It has been a plus point that Shankar, M Ashwin or someone as experienced as Badani share their experiences with me. For instance, I have asked M Ashwin a lot of times about how to deal with certain situations. Like, if a batsman plays a certain way, I ask him how to bowl to him. He shares his ideas. Badani has been a major motivating factor. He has never been harsh on me. If I don’t perform well, he only aims at making me play better. He has been very understanding,” addedAlexandar.
