A unbeaten hundred for Akhil Herwadkar in MCA One Day Selection Practice Matches’21
A combination of robust technique and clean strokeplay is what makes left handed Akhil Herwadkar the batsman he is over the years. In the recent practice match played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, he just exhibited right amount of qualities he possesses as a top order batsman.
Chasing 247 vs Team C in which hard hitting all-rounder Aman Khan top scored with crucial 65 runs, it was definitely going to be a task for Team B to chase down the total. Aakarshit Gomel (45 runs) and Akhil Herwadkar opening the innings provided an excellent platform for the chase stitching 92 runs in 19.5 overs. The opening combination of right hand and left hand worked well for Team B as both the openers laid a perfect foundation.
Akhil on the other hand continued his good start anchoring the chase with a match winning knock of 116*in 131 balls laced with 10 fours and 3 sixes. Akhil was nicely supported by Chinmay Sutar who scored a 48 ball 50 in 106 run stand with Herwadkar.
Result: Team B won by 6 wickets
