Mumbai: Dec 3, 2013

 

“Dreams do come true,” said Sachin Tendulkar when he completed his historic 100th international century. And, two young boys in Mumbai would vouch for that as they met their hero and were felicitated by him for their mind-boggling feats.

 

Musheer Khan and Prithvi Shaw — two young boys aged eight and 14 respectively have been making waves in the Mumbai cricketing circuit. While Musheer became the youngest to participate in the Kanga League, Prithvi smashed his way into the record books with an innings of 546 in the Harris Shield. But, December 3, 2013 is a day they would never forget for they posed for memorable picture with the legend.

 

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) organised its felicitation ceremony to award the winners of the Kanga League and to honour Tendulkar. Musheer and Prithvi were also the special guests and when both were called up to the stage, Tendulkar waited with the bouquet and the award. And, then the two stood next to him; Tendulkar placing his hands on their shoulders. The crowd instantly knew it was a memorable picture.

 

Speaking to the media after the ceremony, Prithvi said, “He [Tendulkar] told me to play my natural game. This was a great day for me and I am very happy. Many look at him and want to play with him and also, one tries to copy his shots.” And just as Prithvi slipped out of the press’ watchful eyes, a group of youngsters caught him for autographs. Yes, he is signing them now.

 

Musheer too calmly faced questions, showing maturity way beyond his years. Speaking to CricketCountry, he said, “Sachin sir encouraged me to aim for bigger things. It is important to work hard and progress through to the next levels like under-14 etc.”

 

When asked about his father’s encouragement, Musheer said, “He has asked me to visualise on the night before every game. For example, there was this aggressive batsman who I was to bowl to. I planned and thought how to bowl to him and got him out.”

 

For both the youngsters, there is a long road ahead, but days like these will motivate them for bigger things.
