Student helps team win cricket championship

Year 12 student Utkarsh G has been regularly training and playing cricket, hoping to be called up to the Thailand National Team.

He has just completed his first season playing for Asia United Cricket Club in the A2 Division of Bangkok’s professional outdoor cricket league (BCL), and not only did he win the league but also ended up as the top wicket taker for his club.

Asia United founder Nadeem Shahzad has this to say: “We at Asia United Cricket Club have had a very successful 2016/17 season being crowned the A2 Division Champions. In our short ten year history, we have come close to tasting success twice, only to fall short.

“Utkarsh Gupta has been integral to our success. In his debut season, he has impressed us with his enthusiasm and love for the game. Utkarsh’s tenacity and hard work made him our most successful bowler this season with 11 wickets in six matches. He narrowly missed out on being the best bowler in the A2 Division.

“He showed great character during the recently concluded A2 Division Grand Final on 21 May, making crucial breakthroughs and finishing with the most wickets (three) in the final.

“We take pride in the fact that we have always given talented youngsters a platform to fulfill their passion for the game of cricket. Our investment in young talent has unearthed many talents, some of whom have gone on to represent Thailand at a national level.

“Utkarsh is a dedicated young lad, and a great asset to our club. We look forward to having him playing for our club next season.”
