Players Cricket Academy opting to bat first posted an impressive total of 255/8 in 30 overs. Despite a shaky top order start, opener Sarthak Pal continued to play his natural game hitting a swashbuckling 125 runs in mere 75 balls. Pal’s stylish ton included 13 boundaries and 9 massive sixes while all rounder Mehul Bhatt at no.8 gave the finishing touch hitting a quickfire 59* off mere 24 balls.
Chasing 260 runs, Sarthak Ray (82) & Parwan Dahiya (64)’s 119 run stand at one stage did appear to be threatening but Players Cricket Academy bowlers eventually restricted them to 211 runs all out winning the match by 44 runs. Mehul Bhatt who scored a blazing 59* was also the pick of the bowlers coming up with healthy bowling figures of 4/28 in 6 overs which helped him bag ‘man of the match’ award.
