Arrow Boy Brijesh Sahani’s Six-fer helps Stylo Cricketers script a win in Kanga Knock Out’22

On April 17, Stylo Cricketers and Madhukar G. Vartak Mem. S. C. clashed against each other during the Kanga League Knockout Tournament. Madhukar G. Vartak Mem. S. C. won the toss and elected to bat first.

Batting first, Madhukar G. Vartak Mem. S. C. were bundled out cheaply for 80 in 24.5 overs, thanks to Brijesh Sahani, who wreaked havoc with the ball. Sahani, a right arm opening medium pace bowler, rattled the opposition with his breathtaking figures of 6-22. He is an attacking speedster who clocks in at speeds of 130-135 kph. On the other hand, Madhukar G. Vartak Mem. S. C. had an off day with the bat as none of the batters looked in shape.

In reply, Stylo Cricketers made light work of the run chase as they achieved the total in 22.1 overs winning the match by six wickets. Ravi Yadav led the run chase from the front with a steady innings of 32. On the other hand, Madhukar G. Vartak Mem. S. C.’s bowlers looked listless as they failed to tame Stylo Cricketers.

Stylo Cricketers’ Brijesh Sahani was the top performer of the match.  Sahani is popularly known as “Arrow Boy” since 2015 when a freak accident forced him to take a break from cricket. A teenager then, Sahani was practicing at the VPM Sports Complex in Dahisar when an arrow shot by an archer, who was practising there, hit Sahani in his head. The accident took place on January 16, 2015. Sahani’s teammates took him to the hospital immediately and thankfully the neurosurgeons were successfully able to remove the arrow from his head. It has been indeed incredible that Sahani was able to resume playing in the second innings.
