In domestic T20 games, Doshi has picked up 68 wickets from 52 matches, at an excellent average of 16.80 and a miserly economy rate of just 6.80.

“I am ready, and I am bowling the best. I love the game, and I want a chance to prove myself again. When it comes to cricket, I want my dad to see and check (how I am performing). I decided in January that I am going to start playing again. My dad gave me a couple of weeks. I wouldn’t take too many opinions. My dad being my dad, if I wasn’t bowling up to the mark, he would just say ‘don’t do this,” said Doshi to Sportskeeda.

The auction will happen on February 18 and will see a plethora of stars going under the hammer including the likes of Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell. Fans will also keep an eye out for Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun and cricketer Sreesanth.
