Opener Divyansh Saxena scores back to back fifties in the Under 19 Vinoo Mankad Trophy 2017
Young opener Divyansh Saxena has impressed one and all in the Vinoo Mankad Trophy as he has scored two really solid half centuries in the two matches he has played. Not only has he displayed a lot of calm and a cool head, he has also shown that he can bat long and till the end.
In the 1st match against Baroda, Mumbai were all out for just 143 in 35.4 overs. Hardly any batsman managed to create any impact but it was Divyansh who scored a well crafted 77 off 96balls (8fours1six) under pressure situation. Even though his 77 ended on a losing cause but he definitely grabbed everyone’s attention. In the 2nd match which followed, Divyansh stitched a match winning opening partnership with Karan Shah and scored an unbeaten 69* off 83balls to steer his team to a thumping 8wkt win against Saurashtra.
Divansh’s timing the ball really well and his temperament is commendable as he does not tries to hit every ball out of the park, rather he tries to settle in and play till the end which is a very good quality. It has been a great start to the season for Divyansh who averages 146 in the two games he has played so far. Cricketgraph wishes him that his form with the willow continues and he keeps on progressing in cricket.
