Good bowling by Royston and Vishal while Akhil’s 54 derails SSC in the Quarters of the Salar Jung Tournament

While Akhil continued his good form from the last match where he scored a blistering hundred, it was also their bowlers who joined the party to help their team defeat Sind Sports Club in the Quarter-finals of the Salar Jung Tournament at the Islam Gymkhana Ground in Mumbai. Payyade Sports club who have a good bowling line up elected to bowl first after winning the toss in order to restrict SSC to a low total.

Their decision to bowl did reap them rewards as Sind Sports Club were 97/10 all-out in 16 overs. Bhavik Patel(20*) at the lower middle order was the only batsman who was able to reach the 20 run mark against the tight bowling of the Payyade sports club. Left-arm fast bowler Roystan Dias bowled with vengeance as he was bowling in perfectly right areas at a good pace which helped him scalp 3/20 in his 4 overs. Left-arm spinner Vishal dabholkar was the most effective and economical of the lot as he came up with envious bowling figures of 3/13 in his 4 overs.

Chasing 98 was a mere formality & especially if you have a in-form batsman who is just fresh from a scintilating hundred in his last match as opener Akhil Herwadkar scored a 54* off just 25balls(9fours,2sixes) to finish the game in supreme style. He was also supported well by his opening partner Eknath Kerkar who smashed a equally good looking 41* off mere 21balls (3fours,3sixes) to steer their team to a commendable win.

Payyade S.C won the match by 10wkts & it was a commendable team perfomance by them as their bowlers as well as the batsman did their jobs to perfection. Cricketgraph congratulates them for their win & also wishes them all the luck for a great semi-finals.
