Ahmad Banday scores another ton in England

Talented young cricketer of J&K Ahmad Banday has scored another ton in England while playing in the T25 Wednesday Cricket League in Manchester England.

Having recently scored 173 run knock for Bury Cricket Club in Greater Manchester Cricket League, Banday on Wednesday turned up for Super Sixers in the T25 Wednesday League against Manchester Gladiators. Banday scored 146 run knock that included six sixes to lead his side to a dominating win. Batting first he helped Super Sixers post a total of 235 runs in allotted overs for the loss of six wickets. In reply Manchester Gladiators got all out for 150 run total.

To test his batting skills in tough conditions, Banday who was last year top run getter for J&K in Ranji trophy went to England this season. He joined Bury Cricket Club and Greater Manchester Cricket League. Initially struggling in batting, Banday finally found his touch and adjusted in the tough batting conditions. In the last match for Bury he scored mammoth ton of 173 runs. In the 12 matches he has scored 425 runs and also taken 22 wickets for his club.

“It is always good to score big hundreds and help team win. It is different league and different club. I play for Bury in Greater Manchester Cricket League and its matches are played only on Saturday’s while this T25 event is specifically played on Wednesday. To take full benefit of my stay in England and learn as much as I can, I opted to play in it,” said Banday.

“So far my stay in England has helped me in improving as batsman and I am confident that this new experience will help me in upcoming Ranji trophy season. I am looking forward to coming back to Kashmir and join my teammates for the preparation of the next season,” he added.
