Prasidh Krishna took up the game at the age of 11. His father, Murali Krishna, was a cricketer too. He says:

“Prasidh started playing at the age of 11 and did well in school cricket as an all-rounder. At the age of 14 he became serious about fast bowling. The family has supported him in his endeavours.”

In 2017, as part of the IDBI Federal Bowling Foundation, Prasidh Krishna travelled to Australia with 3 others to train under Thommo.

During the press meet, it was also announced that former India players, Roger Binnyand Raghuram Bhatt will be part of the Bowling Foundation.

Thommo who then was just inducted to the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame, planned to select a few pacers to travel with him to Brisbane for a 3 weeks training.

Prasidh Krishna went on to work with Thommo and Glen McGrath.

On his first day as an international cricketer, Prasidh Krishna tweeted: “My first day at work was a roller coaster ride. Never over until it’s over. All’s well that ends well. Cheers to this special match and many more to come.”

According to Makarand Waingankar, a former cricket administrator and columnist, the training at the Cricket Australia Academy in Brisbane proved extremely beneficial for Prasidh Krishna.
