The boy from Uttar Pradesh who sold paanipuri in Mumbai and slept in tents to earn few bucks to sustain his cricket has already started to deliver. Having already made his presence felt in domestic cricket and getting a big IPL contract for season 2020, the kid has scored a superb 105 notout ,taking his time ,playing sensible cricket , showing great temperament and playing delightful strokes ,not giving any chances to a decent Pakistan bowling attack as India romped home to a crushing 10 wicket win over Pakistan. This was after the Indian bowlers led by Kartick Tyagi (2/32), , Sushant Mishra (3/28), and spinner Ravi Bishnoi (2/46) bowled superbly to restrict a less than impressive Pakistan batting lineup to 172 allout in 43 overs. Tyagi showed his quality in bowling searing yorkers and Left armer Mishra relied on short stuff. In 173 target both the Indian openers showed no hurry and played steady cricket . The other opener Saxena scored a steady 59 notout and sensibly played second fiddle as Yashwashi set out the Pakistan bowling with a man of the match performance.
The boy who was almost about to leave cricket due to lack of money , had the fortune of being spotted at the right time from which he has not looked back.
However , it’s a long road ahead for him to break through in top level international cricket but with the talent he poccesses , it should be onwards and upwards for him after this 100.
