Playing in any overseas conditions is a different experience as the wickets, bowlers, the dew of the pitches, the weather and the conditions are really different and to some extent difficult too. Be it playing in pace friendly conditions like England or Australia or more bounce friendly wickets like South Africa where fast bowlers can thrive to spinner friendly wickets in Sri Lanka and India where spinners can excel. Every country has something to offer and during this season many Mumbai cricketers go overseas and play professional cricket since it’s mostly rain affected in Mumbai till September.
One of the Mumbai lads who is making a mark abroad is Sandeep Kunchikor- Sandeep who is an experienced Mumbai Cricketer playing for A Division representing Parkophene Cricketers got an invitation to represent Stray Lions Cricket Club in Kenya and he seems to be making the most of the opportunity grabbing it with both the hands.
In the 5 matches he has played so far Sandeep has been exceptional and is making us proud that India is always a wealth when it comes to cricketing talent. With already 521runs so far at an average of 104.00 along with a strike of 100+, he is stamping his class all over with the bat. Sandeep has been more than handy with the ball too with 8wkts with best bowling figures of 3/30 in 8.2overs making him a great utility all-rounder. With 3tons and a half century along with a best score of a quick 130ball 151, Sandeep is progressing really well in the overseas conditions and grabbing the right attention from the cricketing community with his all-round heroics.
What’s more Sandeep seems to be on a roll with as many as 3 hundreds and a fifty in his last 5 innings with a superlative average of 100+ which is grabbing attention all over.
