Ever since Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested on May 16, Siddharth Trivedi has been in a state of shock. "He was one of the friendliest guys in the team. But since his friends were caught for such things, he was shocked," a Rajasthan Royals player told HT.
In the domestic circuit, Trivedi is a seasoned campaigner. He made his Ranji debut in 2002-03 for Gujarat. In 2011-12, Trivedi moved to Saurashtra. The pacer has 260 wickets from 78 first-class games. "He is one of the nicest guys. You can never associate him with such wrongdoings. He is a wonderful senior to have around," a Baroda player told HT.
According to Gujarat coach Jayendra Sehgal, Trivedi was focussed on his game. "He is a team player with a fighting spirit and always helps youngsters. He is a guy who will never indulge in any malpractice, he comes from a cricketing family (Trivedi's father is an ex-cricketer). He upholds the integrity of the game," Sehgal added. He has taken 65 wickets in the league."
