Similarity between Sachin Tendulkar and 4-year old Shayan Jamal: It is hard to believe that at a tender age of 4, Shayan Jamal has been selected as one of the batsmen to represent his school in the U-12 team. As revealed by the father, who himself has been a club level cricketer, Shayan gets himself glued to TV sets as soon as a cricket match is being displayed while most children of the same age can’t live without cartoons.
The 4-year old Shayan Jamal watching the ball closely with good foot work while hitting the ball like Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Even the great Sachin Tendulkar, who ruled the cricketing world for nearly two and half decades, did not understand cricket at the age of four.”
Jamal’s idol is Virat Kohli. “I want to play for India one day, like Virat Kohli. I admire him because he is a good batsman and scores centuries,” says Shayan, KG student at Hamdard Public School in Delhi’s Sangam Vihar.
