Mumbai: Musheer Khan, making his debut in the under-14 Giles shield tournament at the age of six years, bagged a six-wicket haul in his first match to help his side Anjuman-I-Islam Allana English medium school romp to an innings and 40-run win.

Musheer, who had a forgettable first innings, having contributed only three runs with the bat in his team`s score of 233 and going wicketless, made amends today ending with figures of 8-5-11-6.

Shailendra Education Society were bowled out for a mere 28 in their second innings as the young boy made a memorable debut with his left-arm spin.

Musheer, who can also bat, is possibly the youngest player to participate in the prestigious city-based inter-school tournament.

Musheer is the younger brother of Sarfaraz Khan, who had hogged the limelight about two years ago by surpassing Sachin Tendulkar`s score of 326 not out in the Harris Shield tournament at the age of 12.
