Abhyudaya Bank wins a thriller over SBI in the E Div Times Shield’20
SBI Team opting to bat first at Bharat CC posted a total of 209/9 in 37 overs backed by impressive half centuries by Himanshu (87) and Amey (69). Both these players stitched a crucial partnership in an otherwise dismal batting show by SBI where most of the players found it difficult to get going. From the bowlers, left arm spinner Jigar Gada with 4/32 was the pick of the lot from Abhyudaya Bank.
Chasing 210, SBI bowlers ensured that Abhyudaya batters were kept in check and not allowed to win easily. The match ended up being a last over thriller with 11 runs needed of the penultimate over. With some quick wickets in between, it was Pradeep Kachan at no.3 holding fort for his team playing a very composed knock of 92* in 90 balls (6 fours). Pradeep was nicely supported by Shyam Yambe who scored an unbeaten 50* off 49 as both these players smashed the winning runs in the final over resulting in a memorable win.
