Off spinner Amit Wadkar takes a 6wkt haul while Ajit continues his form with the ball in the Kanga League 17
Played at the Sassanian CC, Azad Maidan, two talented teams namely Navi Mumbai SC and Parsee Cyclists took on each other where in Navi Mumbai SC won the toss and elected to bat first expecting the pitch to have some support for the batsman.
Batting first, Navi Mumbai SC did a fairly decent job as they scored 210/8 in 40.1 overs. Even though the top order failed, it was Arun Ghogare at the lower middle order who rescued his team back into the game with a very crucial 78 coming off just 65delivieries(12fours). Right arm pacer Ajit Rodriguez who has consistently bowled well throughout the tournament once again continued his good form as he was the pick of the bowlers taking 4/53 in 10.1 overs. With this Ajit also took his tally of wickets to 19 in Kanga.
However, Navi Mumbai boys bowled equally well as they restricted Parsee Cyclists to 116/7 in 36 overs before the end of the game’s play. Off spinner Amit Wakdar bowled a terrific spell of 6/27 in 14 overs with 5 maidens to trouble the batsman with his excellent spin bowling. Had Amit got a few more overs in hand, he was definitely looking good to all out the parsee Cyclists. Amit has also been consistent this season as he also took his tally of wickets to 19. The match was drawn but it was definitely a great bowling display from Ajit and Amit for their respective teams. Cricketgraph congratulates both the players while wishes luck to all the players for their upcoming matches.
