It was the all important finals after so many tough matches between MIG & Sanjeevani at Venus Sports Academy in Mumbai. Both the teams have fought hard to reach where they are & more importantly tournaments like this have given the right exposure to the talented kids where we got to see some amazing individual performances.
MIG won the toss & elected to bat first as the wicket was good to bat on. MIG managed to put a healthy score on the board as they made 179/7 in 30overs. Even though the top there batsman fell early but Anish More & Akash Singh gave a comeback into the MIG innings and played really good knocks. While Anish scored a solid 40 it was Akash singh who scored an aggressive 75 off just 59balls to infuse back life into the MIG innings and help them reach a more than decent score o f 179. Aakash smashed 8fours & 2sixes and looked thoroughly confident at the crease certainly looking promising enough to excel in cricket. Sanjeevani bowlers did a good job but could have done better to restrict them around 150.
Chasing 180 at exactly 6runs per over, Sanjeevani boys choked in the finals after performing exceedingly well throughout the tournament as they got all out for 138/10 in 30 overs. All the bowlers really did a great team work to restrict the opposition to 138.
MIG boys won the tournament & Akash Singh was declared man of the match as he not only scored a crucial 75 but also took 2wkts. Akash singh with 291 runs in 7matches which includes 4 50’s & 4wkts was also declared ‘man of the series’ while Suryansh Shedge was declared the ‘best batsman of the tournament’ while Sumeet Prajapati with 20 wkts representing Olympia team was the highest wicket taker. Cricketgraph feels proud of all these boys who are progressing day by day & wishes all of them for a bright future ahead.
