New Delhi: Delhi's Subodh Bhati is primarily a bowler but he was over the moon when his explosive batting earned him a rare double hundred in a T20 club match on Saturday, and ended up making headlines.
Opening the batting for Delhi XI New against Simba, he smashed unbeaten 205 runs with 17 sixes and 17 fours.
"It is an amazing feeling. Never expected my batting can go so well. Hitting 200 runs struck my mind only when I reached 140 runs. Then only I realized that I can even score 200 runs", the 30-year-old right-arm medium pacer said.
"It is always a big achievement to score even a hundred in the T20 match as we get limited balls to face".
This however, is not the first double century by Subodh Bhati. Earlier also he had also reached 200 runs in the shortest format of the game.
"Yes, my team mates and the opposite captain did come to me and congratulated me for this double ton. The captain also told me that this innings can change your life in Delhi cricket".
Recalling another jouyous moment, the 30-year-old Subodh Bhati says, "my economical bowling in one of the matches (for Delhi) against Jharkhand team drew praise from MS Dhoni.
"He congratulated me for my bowling spell and encouraged my by saying well bowled".
"These are the dream moments I can not forget", he added....
