In 2019, Mann was appointed as the skipper of DY Patil team wherein he took a brilliant 9 wkt haul vs Amar CC team in the MCA CPCC Tournament’19. On the back of his merit, Mann was also inducted in the Mumbai U14 Probables in November 2019. With 12 wkts, Mann was amongst the highest wicket takers in DSO Tournament’19. Mann was also the 2nd highest wicket taker in PMP Tournament’19 in Pune where he had 10 scalps in 3 games.
12yr old Mann Bhanushali who began playing cricket since he was 6 is one of the rising young talents from Vashi, Mumbai professional tournaments including MCA Tournaments since last 3 years. Mann is known to be a utility player where he enjoys troubling the batsman by containing them. An overall econ of 3.54 across all the formats is a testimony of how frugal he can be with the ball. Another USP of Mann is he can deliver both leg and off spin in a single spell making him a very unpredictable bowler. In the last 2 years he has won 24 “man of the match” awards across all formats while he has more than 1000+ runs and 420+ wkts since 2017.
His friends and parents believe that Mann is one talent who works day in and day out at a very young age. An innocent boy off the field, he is a proper “khadoos” on the field(term used to refer a smart Mumbai cricketers)
His father Vinod Bhanushali was in the Ranji Probables in his playing days and his only dream is to see his child reach a level of cricket which he always dreamt about. For the entire Bhanushali family, cricket is a religion which they breathe, his father shares “we don’t go to any parties, weddings or even funeral ceremonies of our relatives” as our only dedication and time is focussed on Mann” Apart from practicing at nets regularly, his father has made a proper set-up even inside the house where Mann practices for hours daily.
In the ASF Premier League, he was amongst the most economical and highest wicket takers with 14 wkts in 6 matches at an unbelievable average of 3.50 & economy of 1.63. In a tournament stamped & approved by the name of 1st Late Vijay Hazare Tournament, he came up with a crucial spell of 3/15 in the finals. Overall he scored 114 runs @29.00 at a strike rate of 90.00 while with the ball he took 9 wkts at an economy of 3.17 with a bowling average of 15.37.
Even in the practice match vs Vizianagram Team where Mann got only one over to bowl, he came up with a hat-trick which impressed none other than Pravin Gogri sir who said that a feat like this was probably achieved for the 1st time in 5 decades on this ground where a bowler grabbed a hat-trick in the only over he got to bowl!
