India's youngest cricketer


At the age of six and a half years, Musheer Khan, a student of Anjuman Islam High School in Mumbai became India's youngest cricketer when he took part in inter-school cricket.

Musheer debuted for his school against Shailendra Education Society this week for the Giles Shield Under-14 inter-school tournament. The left-arm spinner had an impressive first match. He picked up six wickets for just 11 runs, that helped his team inflict and innings defeat on the opposition.

Musheer is the younger brother of Sarfaraz Khan who made the headlines two years ago when he went past Sachin Tendulkar's score of 326 not out in the Harris Shield tournament at the age of 12.
