Shubham Punyarthi and Om Jadhav seal the finals for Modern C.C with their respective 70’s in the 61st Thosar Shield Tournament
Back were those days in the 90’s and the early 2000’s when teams like Australia and India were never afraid to face tough opponents. It was only because Australia had a strong batting line up which included the waugh brothers, ponting, hayden, langer & Gilchrist while India always had their fab four in Laxman, dravid, sachin & ganguly. It was a similar match between Modern Cricket club & Prime Group Cricket Club at Central Maidan in Thane. It was match where the batsman for Modern C.C did their job with ease and handed over their team a commendable win.
Prime Group C.C elected to bat first after winning the toss to put Modern C.C under pressure. It was a decent perfomance by Prime Group as they scored 168/10 in 30 overs which is somewhat defendable. Opener Nikhil Patil, Rohan Pawar & Bharat Meher were the only batsman who looked confident with their scores of 22. 39 & 22 respectively. Medium pacer Ahmer Karte & left-arm spinner Saif sheikh were the pick of the bowlers taking 3wkts each followed by 2wkts for Shreyas Hadkar.
Chasing 169, Modern Cricket Club won the match by 6wkts as right-handed Shubham Punyarthi & Om Jadhav sealed the match single handedly with their 100+ run partnership While Shubham scored a solid 71 off 74balls, left-handed Om jadhav scored an unbeaten 70* off just 92balls which handed over his team a finals victory.
Cricketgraph congratulates the young lad Shubham & Om as well as their whole team as they have a long way to go & keep continuing playing good brand of cricket.
