Mohit Mongia, son of former Keeper Nayan Mongia budding as spinner
Mohit Mongia is the captain of Baroda Under-19 team.

Son of Nayan Mongia, Mohit Mongia is the Under 19 captain of team Baroda. Nayan Mongia is the former wicket keeper of India, who spent one of the longest stint with the team. Mongia played 44 Test matches and 140 ODIs as a wicket-keeper and a batsman. The player has impressive record of 200 plus catches and more than 50 stumpings throughout his stint with India as an international cricketer. However, the former player brought up his son as a bowler instead of being a wicket keeper. Mohit Mongia is a slow left arm bowler. The young player has a strong form being very clear on his foresight as a bowler.

Mohit Mongia is being trained under bowling coach Vinit Wadkar. In a recent press meet after the match between Baroda and Mumbai, the young bowler opened about his father. A reason for him not to choose keeping as a cricket career was Nayan Mongia himself. The young Mongia did not want to stand behind the stumps. His father regarded keeping as “thank less job”, being one of the best keepers in the team. Mohit also thinks personally that wicket keeping is not his job. It was his coach who suggested bowling. On the other hand, Mohit Mongia wants his son to be a bowler as well as batsman. The former player believes cricket to be a multi-facet game.

In the recent matches, Mohit Mongia has been playing both as a bowler and a batsman. In latest match, Baroda slogged Mumbai in 143 to win the match by massive margin. The team are playing the Vinoo Mankad Under-19 tournament currently. Mongia plays as a right arm off bowler as well as a right-handed batsman. He has been with the Baroda Cricket team since his Under 14 days. Then followed his stint with Under-16 and now he is in the Under-19 team.
