USA's left-arm spinner Harmeet Singh revealed that Team India's captain Rohit Sharma's coach Dinesh Lad played an important role in shaping his career. USA is enjoying a great run in the T20 World Cup 2024.


Harmeet Singh played two Under-19 World Cups for India and also played for Mumbai before moving to the USA. In the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, Harmeet Singh is representing the USA's team which has now made it to the Super 8 of the mega event.

Further talking about his childhood coach, Harmeet Singh said that his progress would not have been possible without Dinesh Lad. "I switched to Swami Vivekanand school. We broke many records, there was no cricket in the suburbs then but now looking back at it, it all looks like a dream. What all we achieved at the school, couldn't have been possible without Lad Sir's support," he said.

"The passion with which he worked on us, and the dedication he showed by sending us to the Shivaji Park Gymkhana to train better under Padmakar Shivalkar Sir and Pravin Amre Sir," he added.

In their debut T20 World Cup season, the USA has ticked all the boxes in the group stage and will now play their first Super 8 campaign against South Africa on June 19.
