There are some matches where a single player changes the game and then there are matches where players collectively give efforts & contribute to win the match. It was a similar case for team Citius as they played together like a pack of wolves to win over Eclarx in the ongoing Dreamz T20 tournament.
Played at high court ground, Mumbai, Team Citius tech won the toss & elected to bat first as the pitch was good to bat on. Opener Saurabh fell early but Chirag played a solid knock at the top of the order scoring a confident 41. At no.3 came right-handed Mahesh Kharat who scored a crucial 47 off just 42 balls. Mahesh kept the scorecard ticking and also stitched a great partnership with Chirag which took their team total to a respectable 148/7 in 20 overs. Middle-order bats Ankit & Prasad also chipped in with quick 20’s which further boosted their game. Ashish & Adarsh bowled tight spells & were pick of the bowlers with bowling figures of 2/17 & 2/29 respectively.
Chasing 149 in 20 overs is always a mixed bag sort of pressure situation & Eclarx succumbed to the pressure of chasing & some good bowling by the Citius bowlers. All the bowlers contributed in their capacity & made things difficult for Eclarx. Right-arm spinner Rohit was the pick of the bowlers with 3/16 in 4 overs followed by 2wkts for saurabh & a wicket each for the rest of the bowlers.
It was a collective team perfomance by the players as Citius tech won the match by 34 runs. Mahes Kharat was declared ‘man of the match’ for his sparkling 47. Cricketgraph congratulates the whole team for their victory as well as wishes them all the luck for their future matches.
