Left-arm spinners are as rare as tigers and lions in India & when you get to see some good left-arm bowlers doing their job, it’s nothing but a treat. Rahul Mishra has been one such case who has been performing consistently with the ball & making his mark as a tough left-arm spinner to crack.

It was the all important finals of the South Mumbai Shield at Wankhede Stadium Mumbai where both the teams were required to give their best. Winning the toss, Souvenir Cricket Team elected to field first as the wicket was good to bowl first. Gaud Saraswat managed to score 207/10 in 45 overs where left-handed Mayuresh yadav was the leading scorer with a solid 43 off 53 balls (3 fours & 3 sixes)  Mayuresh was confident & developed a positive momentum after the top order fell early. Ishaan also played a handy knock of 37 off 44balls. The team could have crossed 250 but the lower middle order and the lower order could not fire when it was needed. It was a decent bowling performance from Souvenir C.T where Rohan Bane, Jayshal Wadiyal, Aliasgar Badami & Ronak Shinde took 2 wkts each.
