He made two World Records in 1983 – The Most Dismissals by a Wicketkeeper” in ODI against Zimbabwe with 5 dismissals, the Highest 9th Wicket Partnership with Kapil Dev(then Captiain) of 126 Runs* not out.
He’s been the most Iconic Wicket-keeper India’s ever seen and to essay the role of this historic role model, Sahil Khattar is undergoing rigorous training of Cricket and Fitness. Sahil has been a Bronze Medalist for India in the Asian Games in Roller Hockey, so while fitness has never been an issue, wicket-keeping will be a different ball game.
Sahil says, “There is no perk without a quirk and Mr.Syed Kirmani is quirkiness personified. So while essaying the role will come naturally to me, on the other hand, wicket-keeping needs a higher level of fitness and that’s why the regimes that I’ve been following are in sync with the look and feel of his character.”
While Sahil has always wanted to become the First Bald Superstar of India, with his endearing personality, this will lay the stepping stone to a revolutionary journey of a fine actor !
