Manan .K from Hindustan Times Cricket club steals the show in the final match of SBS cricket league


Samruddha Bharat Sangh / SBS corporate cricket tournament came to a grand finish on 27 Dec 2015, Sunday at Purandare stadium, Parel. Final match witnessed two competitive teams Hindustan Times against Sodexo battle it out for the coveted trophy. Sodexo won the toss and elected to bat first in the all important finale.

However the pressure of the final match was handled much better by Hindustan Times bowlers who restricted the target to 101 in 18 overs. HT skipper Kawaldeep bowled his heart out at the end of the innings and finished with 3 overs , 21 runs and picked up 3 wickets. More notable performance was the accurate leg spin bowling display by Manan .K who bowled 4 overs allowing 20 runs and scalping 2 important wickets. Manan is that rare breed of leggies who also bowled a maiden over in a T-20 match.

When the going gets tough, tough gets going and rightly so HT batsmen made this small target seem like a mammoth task. HT lost quick wickets at regular intervals and were struggling at 74-5 at one stage. Opener batsman Yogesh anchored the innings by scoring 34 runs in 19 balls and was supported by Manan K by scoring a valiant 31 runs. Finally HT achieved the target of 101 in 17.2 overs and lost 7 wickets in the chase. HT was crowned the winners of SBS Corporate cricket league and Manan the man of the match.
