However, Amrit CC batted really well and thanks to their openers Aarya Satpute and Jitendra Gupta who gave a great start at the top of the order. Young gun Aarya who scored 40 in the last match scored another well timed 46 off 134balls (not a single boundary) displaying a lot of maturity and grit for his age. On the other hand was the experienced Jitendra Gupta- right handed Jeetendra went on to score 90 off 142balls (10fours) which set the tone for the innings. While Aarya showed patience and resilience with the bat, Jitendra on the other hand kept the scorecard ticking with boundaries.

Right-arm leg spinner Shubham Taldeokar extracted the best from the wicket as he took 5/40 in 6.3 overs. Shubham made the batsman struggle with his consistent spin and his bowling definitely reaped rewards.
