Mahindra Rise & HAV Solutions faced each other for a crucial encounter at the Western Railways Ground in Mumbai. On a good batting track, HAV solutions won the toss & elected to bat first to put the opposition under pressure by posting a healthy total on the board.
HAV solutions could not make the most of the batting conditions as they managed to score only 141/8 in 20 overs. The top order could not trouble the opposition as none of them managed to score a big innings. However, Rathish Nair & Ajit Saun at the middle order acted as saviors stitching a good partnership. While Nair scored 38 off 26 (4fours), Ajit also made a handy contribution as he scored 28 off just 21 balls (3fours, 1six) to push their team total to a respectable 141. Jitendra Mandavkar was the pick of the bowlers taking 2/29 followed by a wkt each for Madhav, Niketan & Mukesh.
Chasing 142 seemed to be a mere cakewalk for the Mahindra boys as they won the match by 7wkts & 1 over to spare. The top 3 batsman gave a good start chipping in with quick 30’s while Jayesh Chandankar finished off the man chase with 31ball 40*. Jayesh smashed 5 fours & a six and looked comfortable against the bowlers as he played the role of a finisher to perfection.
Mahindra Rise won the match by 7wkts & it was quite a commendable win while Jayesh Chandankar was declared ‘man of the match’ for his quick unbeaten 40*. Cricketgraph congratulates Jayesh as well as the whole team for putting up a good show & also wishes them to go on & win the tournament.
