Pushkar Sharma, the Indian origin Kenya opener is making headlines for all the right reasons. The southpaw, known for his batting is now showing what he can do with the ball. His contribution to Ruaraka A since his joining has already been great, and now his heroics have helped them register a massive win against Obuya A.
Pushkar, who is known for his display of class while batting, has showed his prowess as a bowler. Known for his all round abilities in the Mumbai circuit , he had proved his skills in Kenya as well. Continuing to show how good he is, he grabbed a total of 7 wickets today, thereby giving no chance to Obuya A to settle. While doing so, he also took a hat-trick. He was breathing fire today as he rattled the Obuya batting line-up, restricting them for a low score of 38 runs.
It was only a matter of time before the Obuya team could stand the onslaught of Pushkar Sharma’s fiery bowling, and they did succumb to the discipline shown by the former while bowling. Only 2 of their batters could cross double digit scores. Their confidence was dismantled by Pushkar’s heroics. And on the other hand, Ruaraka A were high on confidence, and chased the total in just 4 overs by 10 wickets, with openers Pushkar and Chandresh on the crease.
Pushkar was awarded “player of the match” for his impressive spell. It’s rare to see opening batters get 5-for in one day match. And in such situation, to get a 7 wicket haul is superhuman achievement. With Pushkar already proving his worth in batting, his bowling is icing on the top for the team he plays. It has always been the case for Kenyan national team and Ruaraka A team which he has played. And now him getting chance to play for Purple Caps in Shree Cutchi Lewa Patel Samaj Premier League will give them a big boost.
Speaking about his best bowling figure till now, Pushkar said he is thrilled to have done the feat and would love to achieve it yet again. Furthermore speaking about the same he said ” This performance goes to my team and club. Thank you so much Mansukh Hirani sir for supporting me a lot here. I would not forget in my life. I would like to thank all my sponsors for supporting me in my journey like Houseoffones, Trinetreeyecare, avedaayurvedaclinic, Indiafirstlifeinsurance and Optex Opticians Ltd for the constant support”. Wishing Pushkar all the best for his further accolades.
