Not long after becoming the youngest cricketer to play in the Dr HD Kanga Cricket League, eight-year-old Musheer Khan claimed five wickets in an innings on the third day of the revamped tournament which began earlier this month.

The left-arm spinner, who recently had a session with spin legend Bishan Singh Bedi, claimed five for 78 in 18 overs for Sportsfield Cricket Club against Catholic Gymkhana at Shivaji Park yesterday.
