Pride of Sanskar Kamlesh Nagarkoti shines at Under-19 World Cup
January 15, 2018
On Sunday 14th January, in India’s opening game at the Under-19 World Cup, Kamlesh Kagarkoti from Sanskar School zipped and hooped the ball under Tauranga’s night sky at over 149kph. He bounced out batsmen who had a conditioning camp on hard and bouncy surfaces in Brisbane with accurate precision.
The first wicket in the match came about through built-up pressure. In a bid to break free, Max Bryant slapped a length ball straight to Mavi at cover. Then, in his second spell, Nagarkoti peppered Austin Waugh with a series of short deliveries that had him beaten for pace. Then, with the field spread out for the pull, he bowled one full and straight. The ball reversed away a wee bit to induce an edge, which was held by the wicketkeeper. Will Sutherland, who was Nagarkoti’s third victim, was late on a forward defence that zipped through to send the off stump cartwheeling.
The match created numerous proud moments for the Sanskar family each time when Kamlesh executed stellar moves on the cricket field.
