Played at the LIC cross maidan on 6th of August between two promising teams namely Young Friends CC & Juhu Vile Parle Gymkhana, it was Juhu who won the toss and bravely elected to bowl first to restrict the opposition to a low total.
Batting first, Young Friends CC which is relatively a more experienced team were bundled out for 89/10 in 36.4 overs. Left-arm spinner Ankit Mithawala impressed one and all with his bowling efforts as he came up with envious bowler figures of 5/23 in 9.4 overs. In reply, Juhu Vile Parle boys declared their 1st innings at 103/2 with Chintan Shah & Amar Patil remaining unbeaten on 37* & 26* respectively. Young Friends C.C were 75/3 in their 2nd innings before the end of the day’s play where in Juhu VP Gymkhana won on 1st innings. It was again Ankit who scalped all the 3 victims in the second innings.
There is no better sight than a left arm spinner bowling in full flow & Ankit just did that yesterday picking up 8wkts in the match making it the highlight performance of the match. Cricketgraph congratulates Ankit and wishes the whole team luck for a great cricketing year ahead.
