In the match vs Harry Cricket Academy, Tomar Cricket Academy after being put to bat first at Mams, Haridwar mustered a big total of 220/5 in 25 overs. Despite a few early wickets, skipper Mayank Pal who came at no.4 went on to score a destructive 143* coming in mere 66 balls.  Not only did he reach one of the fastest hundreds but it was an innings full of entertainment for the viewers and his team mates as he plonked the bowlers for 10 sixes alongwith 16 boundaries at a strike rate of 216.77!  Thanks to some tight bowling by the Tomar Academy bowlers, Harry Cricket Academy managed to post only 137/7 in 20 overs as Tomar Academy won the match by 83 runs. Suchit Sonare (2/28) and Dheeraj Kumar (2/26) with 2 wkts each were the pick of the bowlers while Mayank Pal was declared ‘man of the match’

In the other match vs Delhi Warriors Salim Ansari team, Tomar C.A after being put to bat first once again managed to post a healthy total of 231/5 in 30 overs. A decent top order start with Mayank coming at no.4 changed the game in a matter of few overs as he clobbered bowlers in every corner of the ground en-route his impressive 125 in just 65 balls (16 fours, 5 sixes). Again his innings was a perfect mixture of hard hitting and toying with the bowlers pushing Tomar C.A to a good total. Delhi Warriors in reply were all out for 131 and it was all-rounder Mayank with the ball too coming up with envious bowling figures of 5/23 in 5 overs being the pick of the bowlers. Tomar Cricket Academy won the match by 78 runs while it was Mayank bagging ‘man of the match’ award.
