Jay Dhatrak’s 115* and a hat-trick alongwith Nirek’s 6/14 derails Dnyanganga in the Singhania U-16 Tournament

Perfomances like these time & again show that India has a pool of cricketing talents which no other world has. In every nook & corner of India are unexplored talents who are just too good in cricket. One recent example about talented kids in India are Jay Dhatrak & Nirek Gavant While Jay is not only a promising batsman but is also a spin wizard who can bowl with both the hands while Nirek showed exemplary display of leg spin.

It was a match between Singhania School & Dnyanganga school at the Raymonds Cricket Ground in Mumbai. Singhania school won the toss & elected to bat first in order to post a big total on the board. Right-handed opening batsman Jay Dhatrak scored a splendid hundred to steer his team to a big total.  Jay Dhatrak scored an unbeaten 115* & played the anchors role till the end. Jay scored 115* off just 81 balls and kept the scoreboard ticking. Jay smashed 10 boundaries in his 81 ball stay and also did equally good running between the wickets. What’s more this boy is showing his class, as this is his 9th hundred in the past 6months which is not a small achievement for his age. Apart from him the in-form Jay Jain scored a gutsy 39ball 43 along with 32* and 32 by Viraj & Ashar pushing their team total to 285/3 in 35 overs.

Chasing 286 in 35 overs is literally tough & especially when the opposition has a good bowling attack. Left-arm spinner Nirek Gavand literally bamboozled the batsman with his effective spin scalping 6/14 in 4 overs. Nirek was so bowling so nicely, he will certainly be nominated for the Cricketgraph bowler’s rankings for the month of April. Apart from him, Jay Dhatrak was also not done yet even after scoring a wonderful century Jay came up with a hat-trick to add icing on the cake. Dnyanganga school was eventually all-out for 93runs in 19overs & Singhania school won the match by 193runs.

Jay Dhatrak has been a big asset & certainly has a promising future ahead, his statistics in the last 12 months are a testimony towards that fact-

Matches- 66
Runs- 2400
50’s- 24
100’s 9
Average- In 40’s
Wickets- 70

Cricketgraph feels proud of these amazingly talented kids & also wishes them all the luck for a great future ahead.
