Kupwara, September 19: A 14-year-old Bandipora boy, Tawfeeq, Saturday left spectators awestruck at Kulangam, here with his left-arm spin bowling, earning him a cash prize and a watch worth 13000.

Tawfeeq, playing for Bandipora Cricket Club, scalped a five-wicket-haul, helping his team run away with a comfortable win against Haroon XI Srinagar in the ongoing Angles T20 Trophy.

Earlier, after batting first, Haroon XI were going smooth at 80/2 in 12 overs. However, as Tawfeeq was introduced into the attack, the things started happening for Bandipora.

The young gun took a hat-trick and finished up with five wickets as Srinagar side could only make 92 runs.

In reply, BCC also struggled, thanks to some top bowling by Haroon XI bowlers. They managed to remove dangerous duo of Nasir Lone and Ishtiyaq Robby, putting opposition in pressure.

However, lastly, Urooj struck some massive hits to take BCC home. Tawfeeq, for his blazing display of cricket, not only bagged man of the match award but was also presented with a RS 1000 cash prize and a watch worth RS 13000 by spectators.
