Mitbavkar Slams 59* As Abbot Healthcare Advance In F Division Times
Abbot Healthcare Pvt Ltd took on the University of Mumbai Employee Gymkhana (UMEG) in the Super Knockout stage of the F Division of the Times Shield. Batting first, UMEG managed only 143 as they were bowled out in the 43rd over. A few batsmen chipped in handy contributions but nothing substantial. Devang Acharya’s spell of 3/28 in 9 overs was the highlight of the first inning. A bowling effort saw Abbot edge out ahead by the end of the first innings.
As the run chase began, Abbot lost 3 early wickets but spirited innings from Ishan Mitbavkar saw Abbot Healthcare make a comeback. The keeper-batsman hammered an unbeaten 59 off just 42 deliveries. He formed a partnership alongwith Sunil Lakka (31 off 20) to chase down the target by the 22nd over and win the game by 6 wickets.
