Nehal Katakdhond takes a fifer while Rohidas scores a dominating 70 to lead Datamatics to a win in the Samata Friendship Trophy 2017

It was a match full of great individual performances as Datamatics & CCD clashed each other for a crucial encounter at the Asahi India Glass Ltd ground in Taloja. On a decent track, Datamatics elected to bat first after winning the toss & put the opposition under tenterhooks.

Batting first, their opener as well as their frontline batsman Rohidas Koyande scored a destructive 70 off merely 40 balls which laid the foundation for their innings. Opening the innings, it was the best start his team could ask for as he smashed 4fours & 6big sixes to lighten the ground with his blazing performance. His opening partner Pratik Chaudhary was the 2nd highest scorer with a 22ball 27 followed by a crucial 22 by Pratik Mahanwar at no.10 which helped them reach a big total of 194/7 in 20 overs. Vasudev Mhatre was the pick of the bowlers from CCD taking 3/31 in 4 overs followed by a wkt each for the rest of the bowlers.

First of all chasing 150+ itself is a task & when it is against a strong team like Datamatics it becomes all the more difficult for the batsmen to chase. Left-arm spinner Nehal Katakdhond who opened the bowling for Datamatics was the star destroyer for Datamatics as he scalped 5/7 in 4 overs which was nothing less than stunning bowling figures. Nehal completely puzzled the batsmen with his spin & 3 out of his 5wkts were clean bowleds. Right-arm medium pacer Premchand Rajbhor also did a wonderful job at the end as he took 3wkts in 4 balls & finished off the game in style.

CCD were all out for 97/10 in 18.4 overs & It was a perfect team work by the Datamatics players as they won the match comfortably by 98 runs. Cricketgraph congratulates the whole team for their win while also congratulating Rohidas Koyande, Nehal Katakdhond, Pratik Mahanwar, Pratik Chaudhary& PremchandRajbhor for their brilliant individual performances. Looking at the current form of the team, they certainly look favorites to win the tournament.
