It was a competitive encounter between two exciting teams namely United CC and Evergreen Sports club at Mumbai Police Gymkhana cricket ground (Marine Lines). Winning the toss, Evergreen elected to bat first with an aim of capitalizing and making a decent score in 25 overs.
Evergreen Sports club scored 108/6 in 25 overs. The opposition bowlers performed well with the ball not allowing the batsman to score freely. Right arm medium pacer Siddharth Kevat (2/13) and Prithvi Salian(2/25) were excellent with the ball taking 2 wickets each. It was a low scoring match as the pitch was tricky for the batsman to score. Chasing 108, it was an easy chase for the opposition as they won the match comfortably by 5 wickets.
United lost three quick wickets but it was their right handed aggressive batsman Pratham Sid who scored a match defining 35 off just 36 balls taking his team out of trouble. Pratham smashed 5 fours and was responsible to bring back the positive momentum for United CC. United completed the chase in just 20 overs though they were under pressure at the start when they lost quick wickets within the first 5 overs.
Head Coach Mr. Subramaniam sir , Ashok sir & assistant coach Gaurav Kurkute of Achievers cricket academy must be proud seeing their boys perform so well. All in all it was a good day for United CC and Pratham Sid was adjudged ‘man of the match’ for his match saving cameo.
