Sonali Patel, 11, smashes 60 for Harrow Town CC Boys
Patel, sponsored by Cricket Deal Direct (CDD) and SM Cricket Equipment, gave a grand show of her batting talent on Monday night.
Wielding her SM Warrior T20, Sonali Patel smashed a hugely entertaining 60, which included 12 4s.
At only 11 years old, Patel is on the elite young players program, a cornerstone of Cricket Deal Direct’s mission to support the development of cricket at all levels, particularly youth and women’s cricket.
“It’s great to see such talent and skill from such a young player,” said Ian Anderson, Cricket Deal Direct’s Managing Director, “Sonali was sponsored after being spotted by a member of CDD’s London team, so it’s particularly exciting for us to see her putting in such a great performance.”
Patel plays for the Middlesex Girls U13s, as well as the Harrow Town boys’ team.
“Sonali’s achievement is exactly the sort of success story that we strive to support,” said Rajiv Nath, CDD’s London Regional Manager, “she’s an incredibly talented young player – and we, at CDD, are extremely proud to be sponsoring her.”
This is a great achievement in Women’s Sports Week, and follows swiftly on the heels of CDD sponsored player, Cath Dalton, who became the first woman to score a century in the men’s Two Counties league at the weekend.
