He made his first class debut in November 2015 but could only score 5 runs in 3 matches he played. “Bhaiya, bas khelne bulaya thha, toh main chala gaya (They invited me to play and I simply went). It’s good that something like that has happened,” Ahlawat was quoted as saying by the Times of India. It was during the 11th over when he realised that something special was in the offering and he should grab it with both hands. That was the time when he really went berserk and smashed the bowlers all around the park.
It was one of the best T20 knocks ever. When I reached 150, I told myself 250 was there for the taking. So I told my partner at the other end that I was going to take most of the strike,” Mohit Ahlawat told TOI. He also added that failure has only toughened him up and he will keep working hard. When Ahlawat was included in the Ranji squad he didn’t have any experience of playing age –group cricket.
