In the match between HDFC & Bharat Arun Kumar team at the Azad Maidan Ground, B Arun Kumar opting to bat first were all out for 80 runs in 33.1 overs. Sandeep Jadhav (32) and Shamit Shetty (18) chipped in an otherwise dismal batting performance.

For HDFC, everything was going right, the bowlers performed well, opposition got all out for a low total and they were looking favorites for a win until the experienced Shamit Shetty came in with some crucial blows with the ball. Shamit literally changed the game bagging 7 wkts in 9 overs while conceding mere 11 runs to bundle out HDFC for 55 runs all out.

Shamit was also ably supported by Sandeep Jadhav who took 3/24 as B Arun Kumar SC successfully defended a low total to win the game from nowhere.
