Cricket nowadays is not just a sport but a highly rewarding profession as well. More and more parents are encouraging their kids to follow the sport. Of late, so many videos of kids displaying amazing cricketing skills have circulated on social media platforms, leaving everyone amused.
Anand Mahindra, Mahindra Group Chairman, also came across an impressive video of a little girl and couldn’t keep himself from sharing this video with his millions of followers. The young girl, identified as Mehak Fathima, can be seen playing some crisp shots in the video. Anand Mahindra, who was left stunned with her talent called her a future superstar and urged Kiren Rijiju to keep an eye on her.
“I keep getting forwards about kids around the globe being prodigies in soccer or basketball. Ok world, here’s our future superstar. @KirenRijiju let’s keep an eye on this young lady & not let her talent be wasted… (sic),” he tweeted. Mehak Fathima hails from Kozhikode.
"Are you not teaching me because I am a girl?", six-year-old Mehak Fathima from Kozhikode asked her father after she saw him teaching her three-year-old brother. So he taught her too. Now, look at this little star!
