Khrievitso Kense, a 16-year-old spinner from Nagaland has been selected as a support player for the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League 2021.
Kanse made it to the 'Reserve List' after his successful trials with the five-time champions the Mumbai Indians in February.
Kanse is also the only player from Nagaland to feature in the IPL, which is a "pathbreaking achievement" in the cricket circuit for the State.
