Leg spin is an art which is hard to conquer & when you do become good at it, you get results like how Sumeet Sharma got in the Finals. It was a performance which helped his side restrict ICICI to a low total and chase the score comfortably.

Winning the toss, ICICI elected to bat first, however their decision did not go in their favor as they managed to score only 117 runs. The bowlers did a wonderful job & hardly allowed any batsman to settle. Kishore Waghela (3/18 in 9 overs) took the cream wickets of the top 3 in the batting line-up while it was Sumeet Sharma who cleaned up the whole opposition innings by taking 4 wkts. Spinners Aakash Bharadwaj & Virendra Yadav also bowled tight spells & bowled at good length. However, Sumeet was the pick of the bowlers with envious bowling figures of 4/13 in 5 overs & acted as the chief destroyer.

Chasing 118, DTDC were off to a good start though they lost 3 early wickets. However Manager Gupta & Virendra Yadav stitched a crucial 40+ partnership which brought them back into the game. Manager Gupta scored a blazing 30 off just 15 balls while it was Bharat & Virendra (40* off 40b) who finished the rest of the job in 25 overs and 6 wkts to spare.

It was a commendable victory where the players gave their best & leggie Sumeet Sharma was adjudged ‘man of the match’ for his smart bowling. Cricketgraph congratulates the whole team for their victory & wishes them all the luck for a wonderful future ahead.
