Held at the Brihan Mumbai Municipal SC, Shivaji park Dadar, it was a match where we got to see a great display of genuine spin bowling from this slow left arm spinner called Deven Dhruv. Just like Kuldeep, Jadeja and many more left handed spinners who are creating a mystery about themselves, Deven’s bowling was in the same league when his team Achievers SC faced Young Muslim SC where Young Muslim SC boys elected to field first after winning the toss.
Batting first, Achievers SC were all out for 98/10 in 38.3 overs in which opener Gaurav Kurkute was the lone fighter scoring a valiant 40 off 52balls. From the bowling side, Daulat Meher was the pick of the bowlers with 4/39 in 11.3 overs. However, Achievers SC gave a terrific comeback with the ball as they reduced Young Muslim SC to just 76/10 all out in 31.5 overs. The bowler who stunned the spectators and confused the batsman was this left arm spinner Deven Dhruv as he came up with magnificent bowling figures of 7/19 in 11overs(3maidens). Deven kept on bowling in the right areas and stumped the batsman with his confusing display of spin.
In the 2nd innings, Young Muslim SC made 15/3 in 5 overs before the end of the game’s play. Deven took another 2wkts in the 2nd innings making his bowling figures of 9/28 which are nothing but stunning. Achievers SC won the match on 1st innings and it was Deven’s 9wkts which remained the highlight perfomance of the match. Cricketgraph congratulates Deven and the winning team while wishes luck to all the players for a great cricketing year ahead.
