Right handed Priyank has been a good find this season for cricket as he has showed a lot of maturity and temperament with the bat. Averaging 50+ with the bat this Kanga, Priyank is definitely amongst the most impressive batsman in the Kanga league. Held at the Dadar Parsi Zoroastrian CC, Dadkar Maidan, Khar Gymkhana and DPZ Cricket Club took on each other where in Khar Gymkhana won the toss and elected to bat first.
Batting first, Khar Gymkhana boys did a commendable job with the bat as they scored 236/6 in 40 overs. Opener Priyank Shetty scored a run a ball 107 smashing 17fours at a strike rate of 100. Priyank hardly wasted any time at the crease while kept on batting with solidity even when the wickets were getting lost from the other end. Left-handed Gaurav Suryavanshi at no.7 also played a gem of a knock as he scored an unbeaten 70* off 74balls (4fours, 1 six). From the bowling side Tanay was the pick of the bowlers taking 3wkts.
DPZ CC made 155/7 in 43 overs before the end of the game’s play where the match was declared drawn. Amol Bhalekar was the highest scorer with an unbeaten 71* while in form spinner Anirudha Mainkar was once again the pick of the bowlers taking 5/35 in 18 overs. The match was drawn but Khar Gymkhana definitely looked more dominating and especially Priyank, Anirudha and Gaurav. Cricketgraph congratulates Priyank while wishes both the teams luck for a great season ahead.
