Kotak Mahindra Bank defeats Axis Bank to enter the finals of Kurukshetra T20 Cup


The two private sector banking giants; Axis Bank and Kotak Bank faced off in the second semi-final of Kurukshetra T20 Cricket Tournament on 13th March in Mumbai. This tournament is organized by Beyond Infinity, a company formed by two brothers, Piyush Rai (COO) and Devashish Rai (CEO), who are passionate about cricket.

Batting first Axis Bank managed to post a modest 106-7 in their full quota of 20 overs. Kiran top scored with an unbeaten knock of 40 runs, but his efforts went in vain as none of the other batsmen could contribute much with the bat. Premal was the pick of the bowlers as he finished off with the figures of 3-25 in four overs.

It was an easy run chase for Kotak as they achieved the target in just 12.4 overs, keeping eight wickets in hand. The openers Nishikant (43) and Rugved (53*) went off to a flyer and helped their team to get to the target comfortably. Both these batsmen batted exceptionally well. Rugved was a treat to watch. He not only accelerated when required but also picked up singles at regular intervals.

Rugved (53 not out off 38 balls) was declared as the Man of the Match for his fantastic batting efforts. Kotak will face Sodexo in the final of Kurukshetra T20 Cup.
