Sachin Tendulkar was 15 when he started playing Ranji Trophy. Now a five year-old is making waves by rubbing shoulders with the Under-14 boys.
Rudra Pratap was just 5 when he was seen taking on the older boys. In a video from 2014, he is seen taking them to the cleaners with his bat. The two-year-old video has gone viral and is the buzz on social media.
Pratap’s cricketing gear was eye-catching. He wore a cap under the helmet to get the fitting right. On the other hand, thigh pads were used as chest guards.
So is he the next Sachin? Who knows! Time is certainly on his side and it may not be too much to think that he might be playing in Indian colours in less a decade.
