There are players who are in a good form with the bat & then there are players who are in a good form with the ball but there are very rare instances when we get to see a player performing exceedingly well both with the bat as well as with the ball in the same match. Such was the case of this talented kid Shreyas Pathak who single handedly helped his side clinch a victory.
In the first innings itself, Shreyas played one of the classiest knocks hammering 162 at a strike rate of almost 90. That knock helped his side reach a formidable total of 309/5 declare. The in-pressure Jamnabai were scuttled out for 167 in the first innings due to some prodigious bowling by the opposition. If his magic with the bat wasn’t enough he took a fifer in the first innings & dismantled the Jamnabai batting line up to pieces. Eventually, the Jamnabai team had to follow on the innings.
Things got worse for Jamnabai in the 2nd innings when Shreyas Pathak again came in & took another fifer for just 55 runs. The opposition was all out for 126 & Jamnabai team won the match by an innings and 16 runs. It was a clean whitewash by the Balmohan boys & a more than magical performance by the talented 15 year old Shreyas Pathak.
Even the opposition team & umpires applauded the boy’s performance & vigor on the field. What’s more, Pathak even took two outstanding catches & also initiated a run out. Shreyas was in a zone where everything he was touching was turning into gold. An outright win for Balmohan helped them to earn 4 points to lead the table too. Going by the form Shreyas is in, the opposition teams must start making plans to tackle him in the upcoming matches!
