age group cricket, under 16 cricketer, IPL star, Nitish Kumar Reddy, record breaker

In a Today thrilling match against RR, Telugu cricketer Nitish Reddy showcased his exceptional talent by smashing 8 sixes in just 42 balls, finishing unbeaten on 76* with the help of 3 fours. This remarkable achievement made him only the second player under the age of 20 to hit the most number of sixes in an innings. The last time such a feat was accomplished was in 2017 by Rishabh Pant, who hammered 9 sixes against Gujarat Lions. Nitish himself had a memorable inning in 2018, hitting seven sixes against both RCB and SRH.

Nitish Reddy’s cricketing journey is nothing short of extraordinary. Starting as a promising talent in age-group cricket, he quickly rose through the ranks to become the best under-16 cricketer. Hailing from Vizag, Nitish’s aggressive batting style was on full display in the IPL match against RR, where he took on bowlers like Harpreet Brar and Kagiso Rabada with ease. His explosive innings, including a crucial 20-run over, propelled SRH to a match-winning total of 201.

Despite facing tough competition from his teammates, Nitish stood out with his exceptional performance. His journey to success began in his early teens when he idolized Virat Kohli and dominated the top-order batting role for Andhra in age-group cricket. Recognized as the ‘Best Cricketer in the Under-16’ category by the BCCI in 2018, Nitish’s talent was evident to all.

However, as demands on his body increased, Nitish had to adapt his role on the field. Moving from a top-order batsman to a middle-order hitter and improving his focus on bowling, Nitish showcased versatility and determination. His inclusion in the senior Andhra team in 2020 marked a significant milestone in his career, and he quickly became a regular across formats.

Known for his all-round abilities, Nitish’s prowess with both bat and ball makes him a valuable asset to the Andhra team. With impressive performances in domestic cricket, including notable contributions in the Ranji Trophy, Nitish continues to shine as one of India’s finest all-rounder talents.

Under the guidance of his coach Nirmal Kumar, Nitish has shown tremendous growth, both as a player and as a person. His dedication to fitness, exceptional fielding skills, and ability to perform under pressure make him a standout player in the Andhra side. As he continues to evolve and hone his skills, Nitish Reddy stands as a testament to the power of perseverance and passion in the world of cricket.
