Coach & Student nail it together: Ajit Rodrigues (11/39) & Arman Pathan(4catches) steer Parsee Cyclists to a win in the Kanga League ‘18
It’s always a good feeling to play alongside someone who is also your mentor and such was the case between the experienced Ajit Rodrigues and the young lad Arman Pathan. Ajit who also coaches Arman played together in the same team and the pair together spelled trouble for the opposition in the ongoing Kanga League.
Parsee Cyclists who won the toss made Bohra Cricketers to bat first restricting them to a very low score of 31runs with just 1batsman scoring in double digits. The principal destroyer for Bohra team was Parsee Cyclists medium pacer Ajit Rodrgues who came up with a yet another stunning spell conceding mere 11runs with 6maidens in his 9overs along with 7wkts. Ajit who took 7wkt hauls even last year seems to be in a great form while Arman Pathan took 4catches out of Ajit’s 7wickets in the 1st innings and 4wkts in the second. Ajit’s accurate bowling and Arman’s tight fielding wrecked havoc over the Bohra Cricketers.
Parsee Cyclists too struggled with the bat declaring their innings at 87/8 in 21.4overs. Bohra cricketers were left to struggle in the 2nd innings too with 8down for 90runs before the match ended. Ajit took another 4/27 in the 2nd innings taking his tally of wickets to a stunning 11wkts in the match. Farhad Daruwala, Ajit’s bowling partner also took 6wkts in the match. Parsee Cyclists won the match on 1st innings and it was a great day for Ajit, Farhad and Arman to begin the season with.
