Kimati Sports, one of the leading manufacturers of leather cricket balls in India, in collaboration, with Cricketgraph, launched Corporate Bowler Award this February to recognize the bowling talent in the corporate sphere. The award is bestowed on the best bowler of the week, based on the performance in the corporate cricket leagues. The winner is awarded with attractive prizes which include a certificate of appreciation and a BCCI approved Kimati leather cricket ball.
Held at the Sydenham Cricket Ground in Mumbai, it was the all important finals between two promising teams namely Morgan Stanley & Cleartrip. On a outfield which supported the bowlers more, Cleartrip elected to bowl first in order to restrict Morgan Stanley to a low total.
Batting first, Morgan Stanley boys did a decent job of posting 143/5 in 20 overs.
Chasing 144 at 7.5 runs per over in the finals of the tournament is always a tricky situation & Cleartrip did succumb to the pressure of chasing as they were bundled out for just 94 in 15overs. The man of the finals was surely Morgan Stanley’s right arm spinner Mazhar Haji as he scalped 5/28 in 4 overs to help his team win the match by 49runs.
Mazhar also picked up a hatrcik for his spin bowling which bamboozled cleartrip batsmen.
Cricketgraph team congratulates Mazhar Hazi for being the Kimati Corporate Bowler of the Week Award.
