20 December 2022 (New Delhi): There have been many cricketers in India who have played historic innings in school or club cricket. This includes the names of Sachin Tendulkar, Vinod Kambli, Sarfaraz Khan, and Prithvi Shaw. These people made headlines and earned a name by playing historic innings at a young age. Now another name has been added to this list. The name of this player is Tanmay Singh. Tanmay is only 13 years old, and he has done this feat in the under-14 tournament.
Tanmay played an amazing inning in the match played between Devraj Sports Club and Ryan International Cricket Academy on Monday at the Ryan International School ground in Greater Noida. He gave the team a strong target with his blistering inning.
In this match, the captain of Ryan International won the toss and decided to bowl first. This decision of his captain proved wrong, as Devraj Sports Club batsman Tanmay Singh played a blistering inning. Tanmay had played an inning of 401 runs in this match. In his inning, Tanmay faced just 132 balls and hit 38 sixes. Apart from this, 30 flies came out of his bat. That is, he hit 226 runs with only sixes and 120 runs with only fours. Tanmay was not alone. He was joined by Rudra Bidhuri, who scored an unbeaten 135. This batsman hit 15 sixes and five fours in his innings.
With the help of the brilliant batting of these two, Devraj Sports Club scored a mammoth 656 runs while batting first. In front of this mammoth, the Ryan International School team collapsed for 193 runs. Devraj School won this match by a huge margin of 463 runs.
