Sarfaraz Ashraf recorded incredible figures of 6 for 0 for Young Pioneer CC in a KSCA T20 club tournament fixture, held at the Aditya Global grounds here. Ashraf’s heroics helped his team coast past Mercara Youth CC.

Ashraf, a left-arm chinaman bowler, stated that he took five wickets in the first over of his spell. This included a hat-trick, which came in the final three deliveries of the over. His final figures read 3-3-0-6. He also scored 40 as Young Pioneer put up 264 for four in its 20 overs. Mercara Youth CC was bowled out for 57 in the chase.

The 27-year-old has represented Jharkhand in List 'A' and Twenty20 matches. In the 2013-14 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 tournament, Ashraf picked up 11 wickets for Jharkhand, in eight matches.

“I am from Bengaluru, but I had moved to Jharkhand a few years ago because I got a chance to play at the national-level. Now, I have moved back to Bengaluru,” Ashraf said.

Ashraf was also part of the Hubli Tigers side which competed in the Karnataka Premier League last year.

The score: Young Pioneer CC 264 for four in 20 overs (Sarfaraz Ashraf 40, Deepak 74, H.B. Kiran 70, Sunil 33 n.o.) bt Mercara Youth CC 57 in 14.3 overs (Madan 3 for 21, Sarfaraz Ashraf 6 for 0).
