Shaik Rasheed Facts

  1. Shaik had first come into the spotlight on the Indian domestic scene when he had stood 2nd in the run-scoring charts in the 2021 edition of the Vinoo Mankad Trophy (the premier limited-overs domestic competition for men’s under-19 cricket in India). He had scored 376 runs in 6 innings at an astounding average of 75.20, representing his home state of Andhra Pradesh.
  2. The performance went a long way in him being selected for the upcoming ACC Under-19 Asia Cup where he had scored a brilliant knock of 90 runs off 108 balls on a tricky surface to lead India to a total of 243 runs in their semi-final match against Bangladesh. India went on to win the match by 103 runs and he was named the ‘Player of the Match’ for his performance.
  3. After India’s first match at the 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, against South Africa, he and 5 other members of the Indian squad had been tested positive for COVID-19. This meant that all of those players had to miss out on the next (and last) 2 matches of the group stage, against Ireland and Uganda.
  4. Despite missing so many first-choice players, India managed to win those games easily, top their group, and qualify for the quarter-final. Shaik had recovered in time for that match, against Bangladesh, and had scored 26 runs in a tricky chase of 112 runs where India had lost 5 wickets by the time they had reached 97 runs.
  5. In the semi-final, against arch-rivals Australia, he had scored 94 runs to steer India to a massive total of 290 runs and was involved in a 204-run partnership with his captain Yash Dhull for the 3rd wicket. India went on to win the match by 96 runs. In the final of the tournament, against England, he had scored a critical knock of 50 runs in a tense but ultimately successful chase of the 190-run target.
