Mumbai: After elder brother Sarfaraz Khan hogged limelight about two years ago by surpassing Sachin Tendulkar's score of 326 not out in the Harris Shield tournament at the age of 12, it was the turn of his younger brother Musheer Khan to get his share of attention on Tuesday.
Aged six years and nine months, Musheer, a left-arm spinner who is studying in Anjuman-i-Islam Allana English school, made his debut on Tuesday in the inter-school Giles Shield U-14 cricket tournament, which made him possibly the youngest player to play the 114-year-old tournament.
Though it was not a great start for Musheer as he could score only three runs in 28 balls while opening the batting, and while bowling, he ended with a figure of 5-1-12-0.
Musheer, however, can take heart from the fact that he could have got a couple of wickets, had the two catches were not dropped at slip and silly-point of his bowling....more
