*At the age of 14, Prasidh Krishna had to make a difficult decision. Choose between volleyball and cricket because he is good at both games. 

*His father Murali was a college-level fast bowler, and his mother Kalavathui was a state-level volleyball player.

*Krishna followed in his father's footsteps after receiving advice from former Karnataka first-class cricketer Srinivas Murthy, who was Krishna's coach at Carmel School.

*He took 13 wickets at an average of 16.6 in his first List-A season (2016-17). The next year, he ended with 17 wickets and was the Vijay Hazare Trophy's second-highest wicket-taker.

*Following that, he signed an IPL deal with the Kolkata Knight Riders. After a couple of India 'A' tours, the 25-year-old played his maiden One-Day International (ODI) against England in Pune, returning with 4/54, the greatest statistics by an Indian bowler on debut in the 50-over format.
