Amazing skills of ‘six-year-old Sachin’

World of Sport

A six-year-old cricket prospect has already netted a sponsorship deal thanks to his amazing skills.

Young Charlie Allison shows all the shotmaking skills of a young Sachin Tendulkar in a video posted on the internet by his sponsor PiriPiri cricket bats, who proudly announce him as "their latest signing".

But while England were on the receiving end of many of the original Little Master's  best shots, young Charlie is a proud Englishman and delivers a fantastic array of shots in his Essex whites.

In the video Charlie is seen hitting everything from straight drives to pull shots and even performing a Kevin Pietersen-style famous reverse sweep - though in fairness Pietersen usually loses his wicket when trying the shot.

England certainly could have done with such expertise on the opening day of their first Test with Pakistan but instead were bowled out for a meagre 192.

Have a look at Charlie's amazing shotmaking skills and let us know if you see him as a star of the future.
