It was a moment of pride and joy for Souvenir Cricket Club as they won the Bombay Jr. tournament for the first time ever. It was the sheer hard work, a perfect team co-ordination & some great individual performances along the line which took them towards the victory.
Played at Karnataka Sporting Association, New Hindu Cricket club which is equally a powerful side to beat elected to bat first but were not able to make much of an impact as they managed to score only 135/10 in 32.4 overs. Jayesh Thakkar was the only one who looked solid and was able to cross the 30+ run mark with his 69ball 38. Mayur Vichare & Ronak shinde were the pick of the bowlers with bowling figures of 3/15 & 2/11 respectively. The rest of the bowlers also did a fine job containing the batsman & taking wickets at the right intervals.
Chasing 136 in 45 overs & that too in finals is surely not the best targets to give & neither is it a daunting task when you have a good batting line up like Souvenir C.C. Souvenir C.C chased the target in mere 24.5 overs & won the match by 5wkts. The ever consistent opener Rohan Bane scored a solid 55 off just 39balls including 6fours & 2sixes to help his team seal the match. The rest of the batsman chipped in with contributions while Aniket Surve at no.3 also played a gutsy knock of 41 off just 66balls. Nikhil Ajgaonkar bowled well taking taking 3/31.
It was a moment of sheer joy for the entire Souvenir team as they lifted the trophy for the 1st time. Cricketgraph congratulates the entire
as well as ‘man of the match’ Rohan Bane for their excellent display of consistent perfomances & also wishes them to continue their good vein of form in the future too.
