Played at the Khar Gymkhana on 29th October 2017, it was a match between Regal CC and Khar Gymkhana boys where in Regal CC won the toss and elected to bowl first as the wicket was good to bowl at.
Batting first, Khar Gymkhana did a decent job of notching up 239/8 before they declared their innings after batting for 42.5 overs to get some results. The main reason for Khar Gymkhana to cross the 200 run mark was their right handed aggressive opener Priyank Shetty who scored 111 off just 125balls.. With 18fours and a six, Priyank made sure that the scoreboard kept on ticking at a healthy run rate as he also played at a good strike rate of 89. Apart from him, Sahil Kukreja also did a good job down the order chipping in with an important half century. From the bowling side, Slow left arm spinner Bharat Meher was the lone warrior as he bowled a fantastic spell of 6/61 in 13.5 overs. Bharat as always kept on troubling the batsman with his good line and length along with his confusing spin.
In reply, Regal CC scored 188/9 in 41 overs before the end of the game’s play where in the match was declared drawn. It was a neck to neck match where Khar bowlers fell just one wicket short of what could have been a win for their team. The bowlers did a good job especially Anirudha Mainkar who took 4/61 in 12 overs. The match was declared drawn but it was definitely Priyank’s attacking ton which caught everyone’s attention.
