A dominating win for MIG on the back of Ankush’s fifer and Swapnil Salvi’s 89 in the A Div Kanga League’19
MIG batting first on their homeground at Bandra did get some early jitters with wickets falling at regular intervals. With scoreboard reading 3/37, 4/48 and 5/94 at various junctures, MIG needed someone who could take the team sailing towards a healthy total. Swapnil Salvi who came at no.5 played a rescuing knock of 89 runs in 98 balls. Salvi smashed 6 fours and 4 sixes as he was able to shift the momentum in his team’s favor. Swapnil also received good support from the lower middle order players like Ashay Palkar (22) & Balakrushna Shirke (46) as MIG declared their innings at 205/7 in 44.1 overs.
With the ball it was Ankush Jaiswal taking care of defending his team MIG’s total as he came up with a sensational spell of 5/18 in 7 overs alongwith 2 maidens. It has been no looking back for a man who took the 1st ever hat-trick in T20 Mumbai as he continues to bowl impressive spells of bowling across various formats of MCA Tournaments. Muslim United SC were all out for 92 runs as MIG clinched a win on 1st innings lead.
Swapnil Salvi speaking with Cricketgraph shared: “The wicket was really good, it had good assistance for the spinners, when I came to bat the team was around 4 down for 48 runs and hence this knock was quite valuable at the middle order. I was told about us declaring the innings only in the last over hence I started to accelerate and lost my wicket or else was quite close to a ton! ”
