Following his remarkable 118-run innings against Ireland, Khan has sustained his outstanding form with yet another century, this time facing New Zealand’s Under-19 team at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Tuesday.
Musheer secures his second century at U19 WC 2024, crafting a splendid 120 off 119 balls adorned with precision, featuring 10 boundaries and a six.

His pivotal innings significantly contributed to India’s commanding position, amassing 275/5 in 47.2 overs after being put to bat first. Musheer stands strong at 131, with Sachin Dhas newly at the crease, batting on 7.Worth noting is the extraordinary journey of the young star in the tournament. In the previous match against the USA, he fell short of a century, departing at 73. Demonstrating resilience and improvement, Musheer ensured he reached the three-figure mark against New Zealand.
In a delightful twist for the Khan family, Musheer’s stellar performance aligns with another joyous occasion. His elder brother, Sarfaraz Khan, has earned his maiden call-up to the Indian team. Renowned for his impressive displays in domestic cricket, Sarfaraz is poised to make his debut in the upcoming second Test against England in Vizag.
