Agni smashes 201, Mumbai clinches a massive win in the U23 Col CK Nayadu Trophy’20
Played at the iconic Dadaji Konddev Stadium, Thane, it was Bengal which witnessed a batting collapse after electing to bat first getting all out for just 91 runs in their 1s innings. Fast Bowler Minad Manjrekar with 4/14 in 9 overs alongwith 3 maidens was spitting fire in the early sessions while spinner Shreyas Gurav chipped in with 4/21 in 8.2 overs.
Mumbai in reply posted a gigantic total dominating Bengal bowlers in supreme fashion. After a decent top order start with Aman Khan (49) & Hardik Tamore (41) chipping in with 40’s, it was Agni Chopra at no.4 & Chinmay Sutar at no.6 putting on a massive 343 run stand for the 5th wicket. Left hander Agni Chopra smashed a brilliant 201 off 247 balls (21 fours & 7 sixes) while Chinmay Sutar was at his elegant best hitting a solid 142 off 200 balls laced with 11 fours and 5 sixes as Mumbai posted a 1st innings total of 547/10 in 117 overs.
With a massive 2nd innings trail of 456 runs, Bengal had no chance but to dodge till the game gets over and with a bowling attack which Mumbai had, it was surely going to be difficult for Bengal team to survive. Eventually, Bengal were all out for 81 runs in their 2nd innings with spinner Tanush Kotian bagging an impressive 6/35 in 8 overs as Mumbai won the match by an innings & 375 runs.
