A Record Triple Ton for Shrut Kalawadiya in the U16 RCA Summer Cup’21
This year, we haven’t seen too many matches courtesy the Covid Lockdown, however, out of the few matches that were being played this year, there were some really impactful performances which grabbed everyone’s attention.
One such knock which brought a player to limelight was in RCA Summer Cup’21 where in Shrut Kalawadiya created a record of sorts to score one of the fastest triple hundreds in Gujarat. UCA Cricket Academy opting to bat first at Royal Cricket Ground, Gatrad posted a massive total on board scoring 498/9 in 50 overs. Even though, the team was struggling at one point with 3wkts down for 30 runs, it was Shrut coming at no.5 and changing the course of the game. Arriving at the crease in the 5th over itself, Shrut batted till the very end slaughtering the bowlers in every corner of the ground to score a gigantic triple hundred. Shrut scored 308* off mere 156 balls which had 35 fours and 14 sixes with a strike rate of close to 200.00 while he was nicely supported by the lower order which ensured team reached a massive total on board.
National Sports Academy in reply were all out for 46 runs courtesy some tight bowling by the UCA bowlers. To score a triple hundred in any format at any level is a commendable achievement and to score it in a 50 overs game coming at no.5 is all the more special. Shrut who practices at Universal Cricket Academy in Gujarat under Coach Pankaj Patankar has certainly made his presence felt in Gujarat Cricket.
