It was a high intensity semi-final match of the Dreamz Corporate T20 Tournament between Automotive CC and FSS. Winning the toss, Automotive decided to bat first & play aggressive cricket to post a big target. Their plan was spot on as they batted wonderfully well & exceeded their own plans (of scoring above 150) by scoring 178 in 20 overs.
Right handed opener Rohan Pawar who is known to mould according to the situations played a cracker of a knock damaging almost all the bowlers of FSS. It was a brutal display of glamorous batting by Rohan Pawar who brought his century in just 55 balls & scored 107 (59 balls). Rohan was initially calm till the first half & opened his arms in the second half showing what he is capable of with the bat. Not only was his knock aggressive but he also played the anchor’s role to perfection as he stayed till the 3rd last ball of the innings (19.4overs). Rohan smashed 13 fours and 3 sixes in his stroke laden 59 ball 107.
Rohan targeted each and every bowler & scored runs easily in all the parts of the ground while he was particularly comfortable against the medium pacers. His on-drive in the very first over against the fast bowler was his personal favorite. The opposition also batted well with their openers putting up a good show but it was not enough against the good bowling of Automotive bowlers. Sachin sheth bowled really well where he picked up two big wickets & gave only 17 runs in 4 overs. FSS were restricted to 153/5 & Automotive won the match by 25 runs.
Rohan’s flamboyant knock earned him man of the match award. The ecstatic Rohan dedicated his superb hundred to his parents & especially mom who is unwell. In fact Rohan stated that his every knock and every match he plays is in the dedication towards his mother. Pawar who wakes up at 5:30 every morning & comes from thane to M.I.G for practice is finally getting the fruits of his hard work.
