Mumbai’s left-arm spinner Harmeet Singh bowled a match-winning spell, which helped his side, Payyade beat Mumbai Police Gymkhana by six wickets in the Kanga League ‘A’ Division game. The orthodox spinner picked up 9 wickets to reduce the host team for a low score of 154. Harmeet has always been a promising talent since when he featured in the India Under-19 team in 2012 Junior World Cup.

His brave spell of spin bowling helped his side win the game as they chased the target with ease after loosing only 4 wickets. Left-hand batsman Praful Waghela scored a half-century along with Harsh Tank who scored 43 runs in the easy run-chase. Harmeet revealed his happiness after the blistering spell, which left the opposition batters shell-shocked.


I am bowling consistently

The 25-year old feels that he has been bowling consistently for a while now. He also stated that its good to hit the right length at the beginning of the season.

“It’s good that I’m bowling consistently well at the beginning of the season this time. I’m going in games with the confidence that I can pick wickets. It would help me when the first-class season comes. Since our team is normally packed with five-six good bowlers, it’s difficult to get one long spell,” said Harmeet, as quoted by TOI.
