It was a high scoring game for OSIAN’s XI as they faced Welspun Corp at Elf Vengsarkar Academy, Oval. Looking at the batting conditions which looked favorable, Osian’s XI elected to bat first after winning the toss.
It was a collective display of destruction as almost every batsman contributed in their capacity. The momentum was developed right from the start as openers D Kathiwada & Sahil dominated the bowlers with complete authority. While Kathiwada scored a 33 ball 49, Sahil scored 21ball 44 to up the team’s tempo. The rest of the batsman continued the positive momentum as V shah scored a 13ball 23 followed by left-handed Aditya Singh at no.5 who scored a blazing 48 off just 21balls. It was Aditya at the middle order who was responsible to push the team’s total to 200+ as he played at a strike rate of 228.57 & smashed 5sixes in his 21ball stay at the crease.
Chasing 223 at more than 11runs per over made things difficult and the pressure did got rubbed on the opposition as Welspun managed to score only 137/8 in 20 overs. H Daddha bowled a mesmerizing spell of 4/20 in 4overs followed by 2wkts for V shah. Aditya who had scored 48 also chipped in with his left-arm spin as he took 1/18 in 3 overs.
Being a left-handed middle order batsman and a spinner, Aditya who was declared ‘man of the match’ is certainly proving to be a certain Yuvi or a Jadeja for his team. Osian’s XI won the match by 85runs & Cricketgraph congratulates the entire team for their collective good perfomance and also wishes them to continue their good form.
