Mohsin Mufti Hussain is one of those cricketers who have abundant talent but yet to make most of it. Dasher at the top, Mufti is known for possessing a wide range of strokes and hitting them a decent strike rate. Mufti, 26, is considered to be fit for limited overs cricket. A good fielder anywhere in the park, the right hander is a part-timer offie.
Hailing from South Kashmirs cricket rich Bijbehara, Mufti comes from a family that has been attached with the sport since ages. His uncle is a former first class cricketer.
There was never any doubt about his talent with the Bijbehara lad pocketing contract with a premier Srinagar based Amar Singh Cricket Club when he was just studying in the 9th class.
Within no time Mohsin was picked for J&K U-17 side followed with him finding place in the U-19 and U-25 sides in the coming years. But his best moment came last season when he debuted for J&K senior side in 50-over cricket. Although his chances were limited, he did show what he was all about in his brief stay at the crease.
Unsurprisingly, Mufti idolizes his town-mate and J&K skipper Parvez Rasool. He is keen to follow Parvez and make it big. Mohsin has all ingredients to succeed at a big level, all needs to do is hardwork and make sure he doesnt get bogged down by the adversities.
Mohsin can be a regular in J&K limited overs side if he is given the confidence and platform to excel.
