Sarfaraz Khan's 9-year-old brother Musheer takes 9/9

New Delhi: Wonderkid spinner Musheer Khan on Saturday took nine wickets in an innings during Mumbai Cricket Association's (MCA) Summer Vacation Under-14 camp.

The left-arm spinner registered this feat while playing for Dadar Union against Virar in a two-day match. The 9-year-old's 9-wicket haul included a hat-trick as well.

The youngster was in fine form at the Young Mohammedan Sports Club, Azad Maidan as he not only bagged a 12-wicket haul but also played a crucial knock of 48 from 152 balls to lead his side into the semi-final.

Musheer's magical spell of 14-9-9-9 is bound to be remembered for a long time.

This is not the first time the Mumbai lad has been in the news for his on-field brilliance. In August 2013, the all-rounder attracted plenty of attention after he dismissed Yuvraj Singh in a friendly match.

Musheer's elder brother Sarfaraz Khan too has been in the headlines of late for his incredible show in IPL 2015 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
