Shailesh Maniya’s whirlwind cameo of 43* does the job for VMS in the South Mumbai Premier League’19
Titans batting first at Somaiya Cricket Ground did not manage to ruffle up the feathers of VMS bowlers as they could only muster a total of 120/9 in 20 overs. Thanks to Nimish Raut’s quick 34 off 20 balls down the order, Titans could atleast give a 6 runs per over chase to the opposition. From the VMS Bowlers, Amit Noorani (2/16 in 4 overs) & Rahul Bhadeshwar (2/33 in 4 overs) were the pick of the lot.
Chasing 121 looked like a cakewalk for VMS team as they chased down the total in just 16.5 overs winning the match by 5 wkts. With some quick top order wickets, it was Sajjad (23* off 23 balls) and Shailesh Maniya (43* off 19 balls) turning the game for their team. Shailesh was in no mood to take the game till the last over as he plonked 3 fours and 3 sixes to ensure his team won the match in an commanding manner.
Shailesh Maniya for his blazing 43* was also declared ‘man of the match’
