Musheer Khan Bio, Age, IPL (Who Broke Sachin’s 29-year-old Record)

Mumbai cricketer Musheer Khan has achieved a remarkable milestone by surpassing a record previously held by Sachin Tendulkar during the Ranji Trophy final against Vidarbha. Khan, who is the younger sibling of Sarfaraz Khan, showcased exceptional talent by scoring a century in Mumbai’s second innings.

His achievement marks him as the youngest batsman from his team to accomplish such a feat in a Ranji final, thus eclipsing the record previously set by Tendulkar.

Mumbai’s rising cricket sensation, Musheer Khan, has made history by surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s long-standing record during the Ranji Trophy final against Vidarbha at the renowned Wankhede Stadium. The 19-year-old, younger brother of Indian cricketer Sarfaraz Khan, demonstrated remarkable skill and composure by scoring a century in Mumbai’s second innings, becoming the youngest batsman from his team to achieve such a feat in a Ranji final, eclipsing Tendulkar’s previous record set at the age of 21.

Musheer’s innings of 140 not out against Vidarbha was reminiscent of Tendulkar’s iconic performance in the 1994-95 Ranji final against Punjab at the same venue. Facing a formidable Vidarbha attack, Musheer showcased maturity beyond his years, patiently accumulating runs before reaching the coveted three-figure mark after negotiating 255 deliveries. The presence of Tendulkar himself at the venue to witness the proceedings of Day 3 added a surreal dimension to Musheer’s accomplishment.

Prior to his heroics in the Ranji final, Musheer had already left a mark on the cricketing scene by representing India at the ICC U-19 World Cup earlier in the year, where he amassed 360 runs in the tournament. His stellar performance underscored his potential as one of the brightest talents in Indian cricket.

Moreover, Musheer had demonstrated his prowess with the bat during the Ranji Trophy quarter-final clash against Baroda, where he notched up his maiden First-Class century, later converting it into a double-ton with a remarkable 203 off 357 balls.

With both Musheer and his elder brother Sarfaraz Khan making headlines with their cricketing exploits, the Khan brothers have become a focal point in Indian cricket circles, epitomizing Mumbai’s rich cricketing legacy. As Mumbai aims to secure a record-extending 42nd Ranji Trophy title, Musheer Khan’s monumental achievement serves as a testament to the city’s cricketing prowess and the promising future of Indian cricket.

Musheer Khan’s Cricket Career

While his brother Sarfaraz Khan gained recognition for his consistent performances in first-class cricket and IPL appearances, Musheer quietly climbed the ranks in age-group cricket.

Impressing in the lower age groups, Musheer Khan secured a spot in Mumbai’s squad for the 2022 U19 Cooch Behar Trophy, where his outstanding performance earned him the Player of the Tournament award, amassing 632 runs and taking 32 wickets. Additionally, he emerged as the second-highest scorer in the 2022 Vinoo Mankad Trophy.

His stellar displays in the U19 Cooch Behar Trophy led to his inclusion in Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy team in December 2022. Although he didn’t have a breakthrough season in the Ranji Trophy, he showcased his talent by smashing 339 runs off 367 balls against Hyderabad in the U-25 CK Nayudu Trophy in January 2023, featuring 34 fours and nine sixes.

In November 2023, representing India B in the U19 One Day Challenger Trophy in Guwahati, Musheer excelled in the final against India A, scoring 139 runs and claiming 3/35. His impressive performance made him the third-highest run-scorer in the tournament, with 268 runs from three innings.

Reflecting on his journey, Musheer credited his brother Sarfaraz for valuable advice, emphasizing the importance of focusing on the process rather than the result. He highlighted Sarfaraz’s encouragement to cherish every opportunity to represent India, whether with bat or ball.
