New Delhi : Dec 31, 2013

 

Varun Aaron’s short career has been plagued by injuries but “having the right set of people around” him has been the reason for the Jharkhand speedster’s comeback in India’s ODI side for the upcoming tour of New Zealand.

 

“I believe what helped me during these two years of rehabilitation was being around the right kind of people who would guide me in a correct manner. During the tough phases, you need these people around you which helps you in making a comeback,” Aaron told PTI over phone from Dhanbad, where he is playing the Ranji Trophy league match against Punjab.

 

“I must thank the BCCI for being very supportive during my prolonged absence from the game, NCA where I did my rehab with BCCI physios and trainers.

 

I owe a lot to the MRF Pace Foundation where I worked on my bowling and fitness and above everyone else — my family, who had supported me in this tough phase,” Aaron added.
“It is indeed disappointing when one has to miss two years due to injury but I am relieved and happy to be back in the Indian team. For me there is nothing more important than to don that India jersey,” the 24-year-old Jamshedpur boy, who has currently shifted base to Pune, said.

 

Asked about how he got the news of his recall in the team, Aaron said that he was informed around tea-time.

 

“It was around tea-time that I got the news of my selection,” he said.

 

Aaron has taken 20 wickets in the Ranji Trophy so far (including the ongoing match against Punjab) but the match against Mumbai where he was at his fastest this season had given him a lot of satisfaction.

 

“Yes, that spell against Mumbai (he bowled a fast and furious spell to Wasim Jaffer) gave me great satisfaction. It was a match that made me feel that I have recovered from my injury fully. I was bowling quick and my rhythm was good. Pace is one thing that I have never ever compromised on and would like to keep it that way,” Aaron, who has played a Test and three ODIs, said.

 

Aaron feels that there are a lot of aspects that goes into making a good fast bowler.

 

“To attain a level of pace, you need to work on the rhythm, skill aspect apart from run-up and a smooth build up.

 

If there is a judicious blend of each and every aspect, then only can one work up a good pace,” explained Aaron.

 

Aaron has played for India A in a series Down Under but this will be the first time that he will be traveling to the Trans-Tasman country.

 

“I have been to Australia with the India A team but this will be my first trip to New Zealand and I believe that wickets there would suit my style of bowling,” Aaron said.
