The Australian team is currently on a tour of South Africa where the team has played T20 and ODI series. In the first game of the series of three T20 games, the Kangaroo team won the game by 111 runs. Young leg spinner Tanveer Sangha, making his debut for Australia in the game, impressed everyone with four wickets. Tanveer is the first bowler for Australia after 2005 to record 4 wickets in their T20 debut.
Speaking of Tanveer Sangha, he is a player of Indian descent. He was born on November 26, 2001 in Sydney. Tanveer’s father’s name is Joga Sangha who resides in the city of Jalandhar in the Indian state of Punjab. In 1997, Tanveer’s father, Joga, settled in Australia, where he works as a taxi driver. Tanveer’s mother’s name is Upneet and she works there as an accountant.
Tanveer, who was interested in cricket since childhood, was also part of the Australia team at the 2020 U19 World Cup. At the same time, Tanveer made his debut for Sydney Thunder in the 2020 season of Australia’s T20 League Big Bash League. Before Tanveer, Gurinder Sandhu was the first player of Indian descent to play for the Australian team. Tanvir was selected for the first time in the Australia team for the T20 series against New Zealand in 2021 but was not given a chance to play.
Tanveer, 21, has been included in Australia’s 18-man squad announced for the upcoming ODI World Cup in India. Fans were also surprised by Tanveer’s selection as he has so far taken 24 wickets in just 8 top-flight games and 7 wickets in 5 List A games. But ever since Tanveer started his international career, the expectation to play in him has risen sharply.
