All-Rounder Deven Dhruva impresses with an all round show in Patan Premier League Season 5

In the match vs Physionish Smashers vs Kusum Warriors, Deven Dhruva who came at no.4 after his team Kusum Warriors opting to bat first went on to score an unbeaten 109* off mere 56 balls at Kaveerni Sports Arena Cricket Ground. Dhruva smashed 11 fours and 1 sixes with a strike rate of almost 195.00 while he also got good support from Smit Shah (40 runs off 32 balls) with whom he stitched a 67 run partnership at the middle order pushing the team total to 199/5 in 20 overs. Physionish Smashes in reply managed to score 167/9 in 20 overs as Kusum Warriors won the match by 33 runs. Viral Shah with 3/31 was the pick of the lot while Deven also chipped in with an economical spell of 1/20 in 4 overs.

In the match which followed on 23rd Jan vs MTM Riders, defending a total of 170 runs on Kaveerni ground, Kusum Warriors restricted MTM Riders to 140 all out in 19 overs courtesy a match winning bowling performance by all rounder Deven Dhruva. Deven returned with envious bowling figures of 4/15 in 4 overs including a maiden handing over a 30 run win to Kusum Warriors.

Just a year back, Deven Dhruva was in the news for smashing 6 sixes in an over in the Patan Premier League Season 4 and the all-rounder continues to impress this time scoring a century as well as taking fifer in the 5th Edition of PPL T20 Tournament.

Deven shared with Cricketgraph It was great to score a century and contribute to the team victory. The wicket was a good one and I wanted to score big for the team. Really enjoyed the knock. Also, I would like to thank the committee of the PPL for organising such a fantastic tournament in these times and giving us an opportunity to express ourselves.
