In India’s glorious cricket history, if there is one thing that has remained consistent throughout then it is their knack of producing world class batsmen in every generation. Vijay Hazare, Vinoo Mankad, MAK Pataudi, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and now Virat Kohli – India have never failed to give the game world-class batsman in every generation. Well, it looks like India discovered yet another batting gem.
A recent video of a very young boy who hardly looked more than 4 or 5-year old has taken the internet by storm. At an age where most of the children find it even difficult to hold the bat, the child is playing some cricketing shots that can even put some professionals to shame. His front-foot drive and punches are a delight to watch as users are sharing the videos in large numbers across social media.
Here is a clip on famous application Tik Tok that shows the child’s stunning shots. The video has already been watched by more than 1 lakh users.
Recently, another young sensation had taken the world by storm with her breathtaking shots. Her shot selection and the power with which she was hitting them had left the fans spellbound. In fact, some users had gone on to compare her with none other than legendary wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni. What made the batting look even more pleasing was that the girl was just 4-years old.
Fans took to Twitter to hail the young batsmen before cricketers joined in too. England women team’s star Danielle Wyatt was one such name who was impressed by the girl’s skills as she tweeted:
Wow! No messing around with her! Fast hands 👊🏼👊🏼
