Vedant Murkar smashes a fiery 71 while Aaradhya bags 5wkts for Kirti College in the DSO under 19 Tournament
Played at the Sassanian, Azad Maidan in Mumbai it was a match where we got to see two good pefomances- one with the bat and one with the ball. Played between Bybankar and Kirti College, Kirti college won the toss and elected to bat first with an aim of scoring big and putting the opposition under pressure.
Their decision to bat first was quite spot on as they scored a mammoth 155/2 in 15 overs. Kirti College openers Vedant Murkar and Tanmay gave an excellent start which completely shifted the momentum in their favor. While right handed Vedant scored a counter attacking 71 off mere 36balls, his opening partner Tanmay also gave a solid support scoring 46. Tanmay was unfortunately run out but Vedant kept on scoring runs with dominance in every corner of the ground.
Chasing 156 in 15overs is always going to be tough and Kirti College boys bowled really well to restrict bybankar boys to just 60/all out in 12overs. Left-arm spinner Aaradhya Shinde was terrific with the ball as he came up with match winning bowling figures of 5/9 in 3 overs on a batting track. Aaradhya bowled in the right areas and confused the batsman with his spin which dented the opposition’s chase. What’s more Aaradhya took a stunning hat-trick along which included 4wkts in 4balls. Kirti College won the match by a big margin of 95runs while Aaradhya and Vedant were the standout performers in the match. Cricketgraph congratulates both the boys while wishes all the players luck for their upcoming matches.
