All-rounder Vinayak Gupta guides Golden Eagles to a win in DDCA League’22
On May 12, Golden Eagle took on E.I.L. at Roshanara in Delhi during the DDCA League. Golden Eagle won the toss and elected to bat.
Batting first, Golden Eagle pummeled a humongous score of 8-418 in 40 overs. The opening pair of Dhruv Jain and Vinayak Gupta stitched a 100-run partnership in just 11.1 overs to set the base for their team. While Jain hammered 119 runs in 77 balls, Gupta muscled 64 runs off 37 balls. Apart from Jain and Gupta, Kush Vaghela (51) was the other major contributor with the bat. On the other hand, E.I.L.’s bowling looked listless as they had no answers to the questions posed by Golden Eagle. Nilu Halder, Abhishek Rawat and Sonu Yadav accounted for two wickets each.
In reply, E.I.L. scored just 96 runs before getting bowled out in 27.1 overs. Nilu Halder was the lone warrior in the fight as he mustered 36 runs off 80 balls. Apart from Halder, there were no other major contributions with the bat for E.I.L. On the other hand, Golden Eagle had a good outing with the ball. Gupta, who starred with the bat early in the day, shone with the ball as he scalped 3-15 in eight overs. The right arm off spinner also bowled a couple of maiden overs.
Golden Eagle beat E.I.L. by 322 runs in the DDCA League. Vinayak Gupta was the top performer in the match, thanks to his 64 with the bat and 3-15 with the ball.
