With Aryan Khanna’s recent selection to represent the South West in the ECB U-15’s Bunbury tournament, he joins his brother Kamran, who was selected in 2018 when he was 15. It is indeed very rare that two brothers have achieved this impressive milestone and we congratulate both of them for their incredible efforts.
Both boys are #mandhfamily
members and we managed to get a few words from them about their cricketing journeys.
Aryan Khanna: “I am 15 years old. I play for Berkshire CC (EPP) and Reading CC.
The first time I used an M&H bat was in year eight and it helped me gain many valuable runs. I felt using M&H has really improved my game and everyone in my team noticed how good my bat was because of the sounds it would make in the nets and in matches. M&H have a very nice design which makes me look and feel that much better on the cricket field.
The quote that’s stuck with me from such a young age, which my coach told me:
“If you train hard, winning is easy, but if you train easy, winning is hard”. This motivates me every time I play cricket. So I treat net sessions like it’s a game, to maximise my cricketing potential.
It will be a dream to play for Somerset 1st team one day because of how strong they are and their heritage, but I can’t expect to be selected without continuing to work hard.”
Kamran Khanna: “I am 18 years old. I play for Hampshire Academy and have just been selected to represent the South West in the young Lions Super 4’s U-18 competition.
I started using M&H bats and kit 3-years-ago when I was fortunate to be selected to represent the South West in the Under-15s Bunbury tournament. I have never looked back since. I have grown in strength, confidence and character ever since and having the right equipment has definitely helped in that process. The workmanship of their bats is world class and unlike other brands they tend to last longer too!
I am told that I have a very unique action as a leg spinner, so I developed a quote along those lines - “Never be scared to be different. Be fearful of being the same”
Having represented Hampshire 2’s on many occasions, I would like to play for the 1st team and of course England. However, nothing is ever certain in life and I will continue working hard and developing as a cricketer until my time comes.
Everyone here at M&H wishes you the best for the rest of the season and your cricketing journey #gowell #mymandhgear
