“I wouldn’t say king…” Centurion Batter Challenges Virat Kohli

The World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe have witnessed an intense battle between bat and ball, with only two out of ten teams earning a coveted ticket to the ODI World Cup in India. Among the participants is the United States team, which recently faced Nepal in a match that resulted in a six-wicket victory for Nepal.

However, despite the loss, Shayan Jahangir of the American team played a remarkable inning, scoring a century in just 79 balls. After his impressive knock, Jahangir expressed his aspiration to face Virat Kohli, emphasizing his capabilities as a batsman on the grand stage.

In the match against Nepal, Shayan Jahangir showcased his prowess by scoring a century despite coming to bat at number 7. When he took to the crease, the American team lost five wickets. Undeterred by the situation, Jahangir played aggressively, striking 10 fours and 3 sixes on his way to the hundred. His innings were a testament to his resilience and skill, contributing significantly to his team’s total.

Originally from Karachi, Pakistan, Shayan Jahangir had represented Pakistan’s Under-19 cricket team. However, he did not receive an opportunity to play for the senior team. Subsequently, he shifted to the United States, where he continued his cricketing career. Jahangir’s talent also earned him a place in the Caribbean Premier League, further showcasing his abilities on the global stage.

“Play against Virat Kohli man! That’s my ultimate goal to play against him and show him that there is another… I wouldn’t say king but another batter on the block waiting to get all the opportunities in the world, play all these big leagues and show what I am capable of doing”, said the 28-year-old USA batter who has played nine ODI’s.
