Cricket is turning into baseball

The ground was small and we held on and won the match before 20 overs. Jonny Bairstow’s return to form is a good sign for us. Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma are our finds in this tournament. We are proud of everyone”.

This may never be your day. When Sunil was bowling, we did not take much risk. Shashank Singh is a special player. His knowledge is amazing. He hit the big shots very cleanly. Let us tell you that Shashank played a brilliant inning of 68 runs in 28 balls. During this, 2 fours and 8 sixes came from his bat.
