Podar College wins the U/19 DSO finals with Rohit Desai bowling a crucial spell
Played at the Azad Maidan Ground in Mumbai, it was the final face of between Podar College (Matunga) and Siddarth Anand Bhavan (Fort) where in Siddarth Anand Bhavan won the toss and elected to bat first in order to make a big 1st innings score.
However, they could not capitalize much on their decision to bat first as they managed to score only 80/8 in 15 overs. Had they scored above 100, things could have been a little tough for the opposition. Akshad at no.3 was the highest scorer with run a ball 27 while rest of the batsman failed to create much of an impact. From the bowling side right-arm off spinner Rohit Desai really bowled a tight spell taking 3/17 in 3 overs. Rohit kept the economy under 6 while bowling and also gave important breakthroughs.
Podar College in reply chased down the score in just 13.5 overs with the loss of just 3wkts. Even though the openers fell early but Parag chipped in with an important contribution scoring 31* off just 25balls which helped Podar chase down successfully. Podar College win the tournament while Rohit Desai was declared ‘Player of the match’. Cricketgraph congratulates the winning team while wishes luck to all the players for a great season ahead.
