When cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar made his first-class cricket debut, he was just 15 years of age. He went on to grab eyeballs in his early years and take the cricket world by storm during his career.

Cricket is undoubtedly the biggest sport in the country and needless to say young boys grab opportunities with both hands whenever they come. But how often do you hear about or see cricket being played at a competitive form at the age of just five?

Well, Rudra Pratap, who is that age, shows you that height has nothing to do with talent in the sport. 

A video of this T20 match that took place in 2014, has since gone viral on social media.

Watch the video here.

Rudra Pratap is seen padded up in full cricket gear and showing off his cricket talent. The boy, who is just a tad bit taller than the stumps is seen playing like a true professional.
