T20 format is the slam-bang and extravagant version of Cricket with immense entertainment. Gone are the days when 160 used to look like a good total and a run-a-ball Hundred was appreciated by the fans. Today, even a massive score of 200 is considered at par. T20 has revolutionized the way the game was played earlier.
Recently, an exceptional batting performance caught everyone’s attention. Delhi cricketer Subodh Bhati scored a double century playing in a T20 Club tournament.
Subodh Bhati opened the batting for Delhi XI New against Simba and went on to achieve this rare feat. He hit an unbeaten 205 in just 79 balls and treated the bowlers with complete disdain as he smacked 17 sixes and as many boundaries. Delhi XI New posted a whopping 256 on the board.
Subodh Bhati is primarily a right-arm pacer, who is also quite explosive with the bat. He made his debut during the 2015/16 domestic season but hasn’t been a regular starter in Delhi’s team. With the domestic season starting soon, Bhati will be hopeful to make it to the Delhi squad after his batting exploits.
