A.V Academy cruises to a win courtesy a 135 run stand by openers Aryan Reddy (87) & G.Prem (58)
Mir Ali Cricket Academy opting to bat first at MSK Cricket Ground batted really well posting 235/5 in 30 overs. Opener Varun Mishra scored a solid 52 off 79 balls while a brilliant cameo of 49* off 11 balls down the order by wicket-keeper batsman Syed Ali took propelled the team total to 235 in 30 overs. From the bowlers, Asha (1/7) & Vivek Gagan (1/14) were the pick of the lot.
Chasing 236 in 30 overs is certainly not that easy when you need to bat at 8 runs per over but thanks to AV Academy’s swashbuckling openers Aryan Reddy and skipper G. Prem, their team cruised towards the target with absolute ease. Aryan who has showed brilliant sparks of form in the last few innings with some great timing and drives once again took the game away from the opposition with a free flowing knock of 87 runs in mere 49 balls, a knock which included 18 boundaries.
On the other hand, skipper G. Prem scored an equally impactful half century scoring 58 off 38 balls (11 fours) stitching 135 runs stand with Aryan for the 1st wicket. The rest of the batters chipped in with starts with Aleti Ramesh’s 14 ball 38* at no.6 proving to be final nail in the coffin for Mir Ali Cricket Academy.
