Adeeb Usmani (90) & Prasad Pawar (60) display Parkophene’s batting might in the A Div Kanga League’19
Parkohene Cricketers after being put to bat first on CCI’s own ground dominated the bowlers quite nicely thanks to some solid batting by Adeeb Usmani & Prasad Pawar. Adeeb who came at no.3 scored a brilliant 90 off 113 balls (5 fours, 4 sixes) while he also stitched a crucial 141 run stand for the 4th wicket with Prasad Pawar who scored 60 off 92 balls. While Adeeb was a mixture of aggression and grace, Prasad displayed some solidity at the middle order pushing Parkophene to a total of 255/8 dec in 59.3 overs. From CCI, all-rounder Sujit Nayak was the pick of the bowlers taking 4/52 in 14 overs.
CCI in reply got only 19 overs to bat before the end of the game’s play where match ended in a draw. Though the match could not extract any result but it was a delight to watch Prasad and Adeeb dominate the opposition on their own track. Wicket-keeper batsman Adeeb with 237 runs at an average of 118.50 so far with 3 consecutive fifties looks in surreal form as he will be a player to watchout for in the upcoming season.
