Last weekend saw an extraordinary bowling performance from German Under 19 all-rounder Hakeem Sayeed in a Regionalliga match in Karlsruhe.
17 year old off-spinner Hakeem was playing for his team Cricket Lions Blue (SSC Karlsruhe) against Karlsruher CC and managed to take 8-22 off 9 overs as KCC were reduced to 164 all out.
CLB replied with an opening stand of 85 with a half-century from Nadeem Ahmad before another youngster, Pratik Chaudhary saw his Team home with a score of 36.
Hakeem’s performance confirms the DCB’s opinion that he is one of the most talented young players in the country and this has seen him selected for the Germany Under 19 team and the Alpine Tigers squad for the DCB Super Series. It also shows the good work being done by SSC Karlsruhe.
