as youngsters clad in whites are concentrating hard on the field where three or four matches are taking place simultaneously Batsmen — all padded-up and wearing their helmets — are sitting in the tents outside the boundary ropes waiting for their chance to arrive At the Karnatak Sports Association ground the scenes are vaguely similar except for one thing News arrived that Armaan Jaffer — 17-year old nephew of former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer–who had recently been selected in India’s U-19 World Cup squad would be visiting the ground for a net session Armaan Jaffer the 17-year old from Mumbai has made heads turn with stunning scores in Under-19 school cricket SOLARIS As he arrives the academy bowlers rush to greet him but Armaan is calm and composed As soon as he opens the kit bag there is a sense of thrill and excitement the academy boys swarm around him as he lifts the India Under-19 helmet from the kit bag Armaan had a similar reaction when he first received his World Cup kit in the India U-19 camp "I was really excited when I got the India Under-19 kit I was in the camp when I got it so couldn’t do much But as soon as I reached the hotel I unpacked the kit and wore the jersey and the cap It was an Indian jersey so I was really excited" Armaan tells Firstpost There is a sense of excitement because it will be Armaan’s first big tournament More so because he has earned his place in the World Cup squad through immense hard work and by scoring heavily in the U-19 Cooch Behar Trophy after being ignored by the India U-19 selectors for a couple of tri-series leading up to the World Cup At the KSA ground there’s also a sense of history It was here that Armaan shot to fame when he broke Sarfaraz Khan’s record for the highest individual score in Indian school cricket when he hit 498 for Rizvi Springfield School against IES Raja Shivaji School in the Giles Shield tournament But in the past two or three years he’s been on a bumpy journey Setbacks In 2013 Armaan suffered an ankle injury that would rule him out of action for nine months and that meant he missed the bus for the 2014 U-19 World Cup He was in contention for selection with a brilliant performance in the U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy where he ended the season with 1036 runs from eight matches at 94 But it was his innings of 290 in the final against Delhi that made the selectors sit back and take notice "It was a tough time as I hadn’t played cricket for six months; I didn’t even walk for three months" Armaan explains "I hadn’t recovered fully when I made a comeback for the U-19 one-dayers which affected my performance I played one match and again got injured so it was a difficult phase for me and the comeback was difficult too" However with sheer determination and hard work he got back on track "I didn’t need to change my game I practiced a lot and was back to normal after that" he adds This time though he was determined not to miss out on the biggest extravaganza However he received a major setback two months before the U-19 World Cup selection An average performance in the U-19 Challenger Trophy where he scored 75 runs from 3 matches at 25 for India Green meant that Armaan fell off the radar of the junior team selectors — headed by former India seamer Venkatesh Prasad — and missed out on a tri-series featuring Afghanistan and Bangladesh in Kolkata He also missed the tri-series involving Sri Lanka and England in Sri Lanka It was a major setback considering the fact that it was a part of the build-up towards the U-19 World Cup and time was running out "I was disappointed at the start but then I spoke to my dad (Kalim Jaffer) and U-19 coach Vinod Sir They told me not to worry too much about selection and to just ‘keep playing the way you are keep performing keep scoring runs and then it will be hard for the selectors to ignore you’" Armaan says Back in contention Armaan heeded the advice as he let his bat do the talking and conjured an amazing turnaround with three double centuries on the trot — 224 vs Madhya Pradesh 223 vs Orissa and 218 not out against Karnataka in the U-19 Cooch Behar Trophy in process amassing a phenomenal 1018 runs from seven innings at 16966 There is an air of confidence about Armaan’s batting that he also exudes when he speaks This is the biggest test of his career so far — he doesn’t shy away in admitting it Image courtesy: Facebook "By the time I had been ignored for the second tri-series I had scored 174 and a couple of double centuries There was disappointment and I had only one option — to score runs After that I hit another double century (against Karnataka) and then got selected for the U-19 WC So I had just one motto — score as many runs as possible" Armaan says Somewhere down the line what kept him motivated was coach Rahul Dravid’s advice to the team during the U-19 Challenger Trophy "He told us don’t get depressed if you don’t get selected for the U-19 India team it’s not that if you don’t get selected you won’t be able to play for the senior team In fact most players who have represented India at the highest level haven’t played U-19 cricket for India" There is an air of confidence about Armaan’s batting that he also exudes when he speaks This is the biggest test of his career so far — he doesn’t shy away in admitting it — but he isn’t over-thinking it and hasn’t overloaded himself with a cluttered mind "Even if it’s on a smaller stage there is pressure In cricket you will always be under pressure at every stage" Armaan says pragmatically Armaan’s growth as a player The one big change in Armaan since his epic 498 is his increase in strength "At that time I had hit 77 fours and not a single six Now my strength has increased and I am also focusing on hitting the big shots and trying to be more aggressive This will help me in the World Cup" Armaan says At Cross Maidan Armaan has come up with a strategy for the net session: "Step out hone pe zyaada concentrate kar raha hoon late step out spinners ka ball release hone ke baad (I’ve been focusing on stepping out of the crease late after the spinners have released the ball)" Armaan hasn’t had much time to practice with the white ball but Kalim has made sure that the preparations are intense ever since his selection in the World Cup squad He sets up a match simulation in the nets to train him for different situations "We have worked on his skill fitness and mental toughness You have to go through different situations in World Cup matches Sometimes you will be setting targets sometimes you will be chasing There might be a situation where as a middle-order batsman you will arrive at the crease in the eighth over or you may even arrive with 25 overs left So in every scenario you have to be a different player" Kalim says "So we put him in a match simulation and gave him targets by setting fields according to the phases of the game Like in the first 15 overs what will your strategy be In the next lot of 15 you have to rely on singles and twos placements and finding the gaps And in the final 15 overs you have to go all out depending on the type of batsmen on the other end and accordingly strategise" Kalim adds His new teammates The surprising thing this year is that a lot of small-town players have made the cut and players from the metros are a rarity Armaan who prefers to bat at No 4 is the only Mumbai batsman to have made it to the squad Unlike some of his teammates — Sarfaraz Khan Rishabh Pant Ishan Kishan and Avesh Khan he hasn’t played First Class or List A cricket He admits that it will make a difference but is confident of succeeding regardless "It will make a difference because you get that experience by playing at the First Class level The players who have played for the country they also play in the Ranji Trophy and in First Class matches so it’s a different experience" Armaan says He also says that having Dravid as a coach will add an altogether different dimension to the team "His presence will definitely give India an extra edge He’s had good amount of experience in ODIs too which will help us strategically as well as tactically" Armaan adds His consistent performances have attracted interests from IPL teams in the past couple of years but he has chosen to stay away from it because of the fear of his focus being diverted due to the glamour quotient involved His aim is to first make it to the Ranji team and then the senior national side However right now he is primarily focused on carrying forward his form in the World Cup and trying to win the title as a team Looking ahead to the U-19 World Cup So what’s going to be his biggest challenge in the World Cup “I am not thinking that way — I have this challenge I have that challenge — I am just concentrating on playing my natural cricket I haven’t studied much about the opponents either because there is hardly any telecast of their matches” he says I am not thinking that way — I have this challenge I have that challenge — I am just concentrating on playing my natural cricket" Image courtesy: Facebook “But the more I don’t know about them the better because I try not to think about my opponent or pitches I just play my own game" he adds Kalim says that the tournament is crucial only because it has the tag of World Cup but in his eyes they are just normal matches and he has trained his son accordingly "I told Armaan just take it as a normal match 80 percent of the pressure will automatically be released Just stick to the basics the way you did right from childhood It will be a set of high-intensity games and you have to manage yourself and I definitely think he can manage himself" adds Kalim For most of his career so far Armaan has played red-ball cricket and there is a notion among the cricketing fraternity that he is only suited for the longer format of the game But Armaan says there won’t be much difficulty in the transition from the longer to shorter format "I’ve been playing cricket in Mumbai right from childhood and there was no shorter format in my U-14 and U-16 days?
