Right handed Sumit scored 229 off just 204 balls hardly wasting any time at the crease while smashing 27fours and 3sixes en route his 204ball stay at the crease.

MIG gave a fitting reply with the ball too as they restricted PJ Hindu boys to just 157/all out in 35.4 overs. Left-arm spinner Vinit Dhulap wrecked the PJ Hindu boys with his effortless spin as he came up with match winning bowling figures of 7/55 in 12.4 overs.
