Abhishak Goswami, a 17 years old cricketer of Delhi and a student of Modern School has gained a lot of media attention recently. Abhishek while playing in an Inter School Tournament in his school ground, scored unbeaten 255 runs against Andhra Education society. This whooping figure includes 27 sixes and 18 boundaries. Even in the international cricket, Chrius Gayle had scored 175 while playing from RCF Bangalore against Pune Warriors in the IPL in 2013. This underlines the importance of the splendid performance of this young boy. A Sri lankan cricketer, Dhanuka is ahead of Abhishak as Dhanuka had scored 277 runs in a T-20 match in England during 2007.
David Warner is the idol for Abhishek. Regaring his brilliant inning he said ”When I was playing, I was not thinking about record but my thrust was to keep hitting. He has played for Delhi unde-14, under-16. Already he has scored 2 half centuries and a ton in under 16 matches. He was a part of under 19 squad this year but could not make it to playing eleven.
Incidently former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir and Kirti Azad have also studied in Modern School. It appears we have got another star in the making. coming out straight from Modern School.
