Basil Thampi is a right-arm fast bowler hailing from the same state as his idol, S Sreesanth. Bowling quick is his forte and that just adds him to the currently evergrowing list of fast bowlers. He started off as a footballer and a tennis-ball player but Tinu Yohannan's guidance helped him become a quality bowler. The youngster from Kerala impressed everyone with his consistency, bowling quick yorkers in the local T20 league. During one of the televised games of the inter-zonal T20 league, he caught the attention of Gujarat Lions’ performance coach, Monty Desai and Brad Hodge. They were impressed with his overall maturity and bought him for Rs 85 lakh in the Indian T20 League auction.
