Debutante Stuart Binny made his family proud with his rearguard knock of 78  in the second innings steered India to a draw against England on the last day of the 1st Test at Trent Bridge. The all-rounder made the statement in an interview with BCCI.tv, in which he shared his views about the match as well as his goals ahead.

Binny, whose father Roger represented India in 27 tests and 72 ODIs, mentioned the support he received from his family and friends as a source of inspiration for him to make the most of his debut. The Karnataka player got a call into the test team 11 years after his domestic debut.

“It’s an unbelievable and very proud feeling, especially for the family and all my friends who supported me throughout the tough times I faced to get here. Personally it was a very special feeling to walk out on the field for my first session of Test cricket,” said Binny. After a disappointing first innings, in which he was dismissed cheaply for one run, Binny admitted that his aim was to spend as much time in the middle as possible.

Binny admitted that he did not play any vital role in the first four days of the match, which only pushed him further to make an impact on the final day. “The wicket didn’t suit my style of bowling and I had to understand and accept that quickly. I was told that a Test match lasts five days that so I will be required to play a part at some point,” said Binny.

When asked about his chances of surpassing his father’s highest score of 83, Binny replied, “Actually I didn’t know about it. When I went back to the change room, it was pointed out to me. Hopefully, there are many more Test matches to go for me and I will be able to overhaul his score.”
