Two things India has in abundance when it comes to cricket is millions of loyal fans for Cricket and a deep wealth of cricketing talent present in every remote corners of India. In that way, India has always been rich as time and again gems are found from the most humble backgrounds of India and this is what makes Cricket all the more special in our country and one such gem was found in the DSO U-14 tournament called Vineet Vanikar.
Played at the Azad Maidan, it was a match between two promising young teams namely Rustomjee School and Gokuldham school where in Rustomjee boys won the toss and elected to bat first in order to make a big total and capitalize the situation. At one point things looked good too till the time Rustomjee were 15 for no loss and all of a sudden came this mystery spinner Vinit Vanikar onto his 3rd over which completely changed the game in a span of just 7balls.Vineet bamboozled the batsman with his confusing leg spin as he took 6wkts in 7balls (wkt, wide, wkt, wkt, wkt, wkt, wkt.). Vineet took 5wkts in 5balls along with a hat-trick reminding us of Lasith Malinga who achieved that feat of 5wkts in 5balls vs South Africa in 2007 World Cup. Rustomjee School were all out for just 28runs due to that one over which made a huge dent into their innings.
With just 29runs to win, the score was chased under 5 overs by Gokuldham openers Ronit Thakur and Khush Jain which helped their team win the match by 10wkts. It was a commendable win but it was their right-arm leg spinner Vineet Vanikar who was definitely the ‘man of the moment’ . His perfomance was the definately the best in the match. Cricketgraph congratulates Vineet while wishes luck to all the boys for a great cricketing season ahead.
