Bhubaneswar: The impressive return of left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha, who took a six-wicket haul in the first innings of the first Test against the West Indies, may have surprised many but not his father, Maheswar.
"After being out of national reckoning for about one year, Pragyan was waiting for an opportunity to prove his mettle," a beaming Maheswar told reporters after his son grabbed a career-best six-wicket haul in the first innings of the ongoing match in Delhi.
"We hope he will repeat similar feat in the future as well. He was, a bit, under pressure after being overlooked. I had advised him not to dishearten and wait for the right opportunity. When the opportunity comes, utilise it properly", he said.
