Sanush started bowling when he was six-months old, MS Dhoni highly impressed by this Super Kid

Most one-year-old babies take the first step when they are at least 1 year old. It takes 2-3 years for a child to start developing a sense of being a male or female. But this super smart kid in Chennai announced his arrival as a cricketer when he has was just half a year old. Sanush Suryadev is one of a kind.

The wonder boy started bowling when he was just 6 months old. He had gone from strength to strength. When he became two years and six months old, he deftly played cricket shots like a hot knife through butter. Even the demigod Sachin Tendulkar who was at the helm of the game for more than two decades did not understand cricket at the age of one.

Usually, cricketers earn fame and reputation for their consistent performances and for the way they approach the game. But Sanush earned the nickname for his tenacious talent. To give a glimpse at his potential, you can search ‘Sanush Suryadev’ or ‘Junior MSD’ on the YouTube.

Sanush Suryadev got featured in the Indian Book of Records as “the Youngest Child Cricketer”. His proud parents couldn’t have asked for anything better from their child who drew attention to the cricketing world. Analysing son’s talent, the parents bought him a bat and a ball which he made use of the equipment to good effect.

Sanush who took a liking to cricket wakes up 5 am in the morning and starts practising. Murugan Raj who is a cricketer himself takes his son to the local areas as well as to the Chepauk Stadium. According to Murugan Raj, Sanush has all ingredients to become one of the best bowlers.

According to Sanush’s grandmother, Sanush has good concentration levels and she labelled Sanush as the ‘Future Sachin Tendulkar’. Sanush hogged the limelight when his parents uploaded a video of him ‘playing cricket’ via Facebook. The video received immediate attention and took everyone by surprise.

When the former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni happened to watch the video by chance was highly impressed by this kid. Sanush and his proud parents got a golden chance to meet up with MS Dhoni and take photographs and autographs with him. Interestingly, MS Dhoni and Sanush share the birthday on the same day.
