“However, all these accomplishments don’t hold as much significance for Mushir Khan, who aims to clinch the World Cup trophy by the end of the tournament.

Speaking to ICC, khan said, “I’m happy with my performances, but until we win the World Cup, I won’t be satisfied.” “As for being the highest run-scorer, I don’t really think about it. Since we started playing in the tournament, it has only been about winning the World Cup, and that’s what we’re focused on. I just want to perform well for the team and accept the results as they come.”

Mushir comes from a cricketing family; his elder brother Sarfaraz played in the 2014 and 2016 U19 World Cups and was recently part of the Indian team for the second Test against England.

Having closely observed his brother’s journey, Mushir has drawn much inspiration from dealing with various challenges.”

When asked about his tendency to score big centuries after his marathon innings in the Ranji Trophy, Sarfaraz Khan said, “It’s become a habit. I’ve had the habit of scoring big runs since my school cricket days.”

In terms of making big centuries, his younger brother Musheer is second only to him. His achievements in local cricket are well-known, having scored big runs for Mumbai in club cricket and age-group tournaments, including a triple century (339) against Hyderabad in the Under-15 CK Nayudu Trophy match in 2023.

On Saturday, he converted his night century into a double century for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals against Baroda at the MCA Sharad Pawar Cricket Academy ground.

Batting at number 3, he scored 203 runs off 357 balls in nearly nine hours of play. It was a valuable effort by the 18-year-old as he contributed more than half of Mumbai’s total score of 384.

Despite the early loss of Priyanshu Mohliya, Baroda’s top order showed a positive approach. By the end of the second day’s play, the visiting team was 127/2 and trailing by 257 runs. Mumbai’s bowlers are facing a challenge as Baroda’s left-handed batsman Vishnu Solanki is playing after making 23 runs.

After losing early wickets, khan sacrificed all risks and tried to play on the field for the entire time, hitting 18 boundaries without any sixes. Hardik Tamore’s second-highest score for Mumbai was 57 runs, which highlights Baroda’s bowling attack and quality. Both had to work hard for every run. The wicketkeeper-batsman provided solid support to Musheer, adding 181 runs for the sixth wicket in 248 balls.

Starting again at a total score of 248/5 on the second morning, they added 75 runs together. To unsettle the right-handed batting pair, Baroda’s captain also instructed his fast bowlers to bowl bouncers from all around the wicket.

At 156, Musheer was hit on the helmet by a bouncer from his India Under-19 teammate Raj Limbani, but he continued. A well-directed bouncer from left-arm fast bowler Lukman Meriwala was negotiated by Musheer by ducking under it and tapping it over the keeper for his 15th boundary at 168.

Amidst long phases of survival, Tamore motivated Kavre to take Meriwala in the 40s. He completed his brilliant half-century and celebrated by dancing on the track, hitting Mahesh Pithiya on the ground for his third boundary
