Duleep Trophy: Washington Sundar looks to go North

Tomorrow, Washington Sundar will attempt to show he has regained his fitness after a six month absence when he plays in the Duleep Trophy semifinal for South Zone against North Zone in Bengaluru. North Zone had a convincing victory over North East Zone in the quarterfinals, while South Zone earned their spot in the semis based on their performance in the last edition. This game is also important for those hoping to represent India in the future, and Washington is one of them. Despite playing in 55 matches, including 4 Tests, 16 ODIs, and 35 T20Is, the 23 year old Tamil Nadu all-rounder has struggled with injuries and fitness issues over the past six years. West Zone are the favourites when they take on Central Zone in their semifinal in Alur, with Cheteshwar Pujara, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, and Sarfaraz Khan all hoping to get their careers back on track.
