Profile

Akshay Karnewar was 13 when Balu Navghare, his coach at the time, noticed that the right-arm offspinner batted and threw left. Navghare encouraged him to take up left-arm spin seriously, and Karnewar ended up becoming an ambidextrous bowler. Standing at nearly six feet, Karnewar bowls with a flattish action and does not spin the ball much. In 2008, Karnewar, who hails from Pandharkawda village in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district, attended the Vidarbha Cricket Academy trials and found a backer in former Mumbai wicketkeeper Sulakshan Kulkarni, who encouraged him to bowl in BCCI-organised tournaments.
