It was an exciting league match at Oval Maidan between two equally competitive teams i.e Lintas vs DSP Blackrock in the Milan T20 tournament. DSP elected to field first after winning the toss as chasing (low or moderate score) on a wet track would give them an advantage(as the pitch would dry a little later on)
While skipper Nakul and Vaibhav tyagi fell early, it was the aggressive right handed opener Varun Sabharwal who sailed the boat ahead. The aggressive opener smashed a quickfire and a mature knock of 73 coming off just 63 balls. Varun who is a free-flowing batsman kept his calm till the first half of the innings but soon opened his arms after 10 overs. His 73 included 8 boundaries and most of them were smashed in the later part of his innings. As skipper Nakul shared with Cricketgraph “Varun has been a consistent performer, we always give him the license to play freely, varun would be relieved himself to finally convert his good 30’s and 40’s into a good score after quite a few matches”
Lintas managed to score 144 /5 in 20 overs, DSP Blackrock were restricted to just 101 all out due to some great bowling by the opposition. Shailesh snapped 2 wickets in his 1st over, though he gave away a few runs later on. Jai kirti was the pick of the bowlers taking 2/10 in his 3 overs. Varun also contributed wonderfully with his right arm medium pace giving away just 8 runs in 3 overs and also taking a wicket.
Lintas won the match by 43 runs and Varun Sabharwal was adjudged ‘man of the match”. We are sure Varun and the whole team will have positive momentum by their side in the next matches of the tournament.
