Jaycool’s father Dr.Gokulsing Girase entertained us as a commentator through the All-India Radio Station in the 2011 World Cup Finals & now it was the turn of his kid Jaycool to do something special in cricket. Two talented & promising teams namely Boys Cricket Club & KC Gandhi School clashed for a crucial encounter at the Union Cricket Academy Ground at Kalyan in Mumbai. KC Gandhi School won the toss & elected to bat first with an aim of posting a big total on the board and put the Boys CC players under pressure.
Their decision to bat first was spot on as they managed to score a mammoth 192/1 in 20 overs which is a good score to defend on any part of the day. KC Gandhi skipper Jaycool Girase stamped his class as he went on to score a match winning knock of 99* off just 67balls. In fact such was the partnership developed by the openers, KC Gandhi school were almost wicketless in their 20 overs as Jaycool’s partner Gautam was unfortunately run out on the 2nd last ball of the innings after scoring a superlative half century(55) supporting his skipper till the end. Right-handed Jaycool smashed 14fours & did equally good running between the wickets in his 67ball knock which took their team total to a very competitive score of 192/1 in 20 overs.
Chasing at almost 10runs per over, Boys Cricket Club almost to the pressure of chasing as they were bundled out for just 88 runs. KC Gandhi School won the match by a big margin of 104 runs as they also did equally bowling to trouble the opposition. Leg-spinner Parth Darange was the pick of the bowlers scalping 3 wkts followed by 2wkts for off-spinner Sahil Gupta. Skipper Jaycool also chipped in with 2wkts with his medium pace to make it a complete all-round perfomance. Left-Arm spinner Hemaksh & medium pacer Aditya also took a wicket each making it a collective bowling effort from KC Boys.
KC Gandhi won the match & skipper Jaycool who played the captain’s role to perfection was declared ‘man of the match’. It was a great team perfomance where all the boys worked hard & cricketgraph congratulates KC Gandhi team for their commendable win and also wishes them all the luck for a great future ahead.
