Akshay Powale’s half-century and Sarvesh’s 4/6 steers Earth Matrix to a finals win in the Dreamz T20 Tournament
Held at the MB Union ground in Mumbai, it was the all important finals between Earth Matrix & Capegemini of the plate ‘A’ division finals of the Dreamz T20 Tournament. Earth Matrix won the toss & elected to bat first with an aim of making a decent total on the board to put the opposition under pressure.
Their decision to bat first was quite spot on as they scored 169/9 in 20 overs. Right-handed opener Akshay Powale scored a brilliant half century at the top of the order which created a positive momentum. Akshay scored 53 off 38balls which included 7fours & 2sixes while the rest of the batsman gave starts but could not convert it into half centuries. It was a decent bowling perfomance where Rajesh, Tejas & Manoj took 2wkts each.
Chasing 170 at more than 8runs per over, it was a brilliant bowling perfomance from the Earth Matrix Boys as they bundled out Capegemini for 72/10 in 16.1 overs. Left arm spinner Sarvesh bowled one of the stunning spells of the tournament of 4overs, 2maidens and taking 4wkts while giving away just 6runs followed by 2wkts each for Rasik & Sunil.
Earth Matrix won the all important finals of the tournament while Opener Akshay was declared not only ‘man of the match’ but also ‘man of the series’ for scoring 165 runs in the tournament(4matches) which included 2 fifties, 6catches & 1 run out. Cricketgraph congratulates the whole team for their win while also wishes luck to all the players for a great cricketing year ahead.
