FCC smashers & (CCD) Cricket Club of Dombivali entered into a crucial face-off at Asahi India Glass Ltd, Taloja. Looking at the pitch conditions, Cricket Club of Dombivali elected to field first with an expectation and aim of restricting the opposition to a low score.
However, C.C.D were unaware of the batting carnage which was going to come from the FCC Smashers as they managed to make 188/4 in 20 overs. Openers Deepak Gaikwad & Prashant Nair both gave an excellent start at the top of the order which developed a positive momentum. While Deepak scored 45 of 41, right handed Prashant Nair scored a solid 55 off just 42balls. Right-handed Ashish Dhadas continued the positive momemtum & made the most of it as he went completely berserk against the bowlers. Ashish Dhadas scored an entertaining 49 off just 20balls. What’s more Ashish played like a boss dealing mostly in boundaries, sorry not boundaries, only sixes! as he smashed as many as 6big sixes to enthrall his team mates and the spectators alike.
Chasing 189, C.C.D were all out for just 116runs in 18.2overs. Almost every bowler chipped in with a wicket or two & it was a collectively good bowling perfomance with Sagar Nehete & sagar vaiude being the pick of the bowlers taking 2wkts each while Ashish Dhadas also taking a wicket making it an all-round perfomance.
FCC smashers won the match by 72runs & Ashish dhadas was declared ‘man of the match’. Cricketgraph congratulates Ashish & the whole team and wishes them to continue their form till the end of the tournament.
