Fort Vijay who have an equally strong batting line up elected to bat first after winning the toss. Fort Vijay scored 307/10 in the 1st innings which was surely a defendable 1st innings score. Rahul Lad was the pick of the batsman falling just 2 runs short of a wonderful century. Rahul was looking extremely confident & poised at the crease and deserved a century but it was a good knock none the less. Unfortunately Rahul was run-out when he was trying to snatch a second run a bit slowly. Karan Nandey & Sanket Bhaye also chipped in with 43 & 36 respectively. All-rounder Shivam Dube was the leading bowler for DY Patil as he scalped 4/56 to trouble the batsman.
