Reliable Aaryan Modi
Scoring his maiden 50 in an ICC tournament 53 (41balls).
Aaryan is a homegrown player of Singapore, who has been in the system for more than 5 years.
Aaryan started his cricketing journey in Singapore by joining the SNCA (SCA Cricket Academy) where he was not only taught the basic skills required to play the sport but also the mental and ethical side of cricket.
Playing my first official ICC match for my nation of Singapore, I was filled with a great sense of pride and honour. I was 10 years old when I saw my seniors leave to play the ICC U19 World Cup qualifiers, from then on there was a burning desire in me to impress and one day be on the flight that would take me to my destination- An official ICC tournament.”
He says, “I have worked really hard to reach here, and being able to convert all sweat, and tears into a tangible and successful inning with the constant guidance of my coach makes me feel like never before. Scoring a half-century for your nation is a feeling that very few get to experience and I’m glad that I was able to experience it so early on in my career.”
Modi believes that the team is in a very good mental space with all its players ready both mentally and physically. Everyone has a desire and a passion to win and our match against Qatar just allowed this sensation in our hearts to be expressed on the cricket pitch. “I am glad that we as a team are adapting well to the conditions and putting our best foot forward.”
