Amol Patil scores 71 while the experienced Yogesh Dicholkar comes up with 6/29 in the Kanga League’19
MB Union CC after being put to bat first on their home ground registered a total of 175/10 in 46.3 overs. MB Union who were off to a poor start with scoreboard reading 32/5 at one stage came back into the game thanks to a match saving 71 runs off 107 balls by Amol Patil(6 fours, 3 sixes) at no.6. Amol was supported well by Hitesh Chorghe (42) and Ninad Raut (20*) as MB Union from 32/5 reached a respectable total of 175 runs for their 1st innings. Left arm spinner Yogesh Dicholkar was the pick of the bowlers coming with excellent bowling figures of 6/29 in 14.1 overs. Yogesh is a experienced veteran of sorts at the club level while he was amongst the top wicket takers last year too as he continues to impress with the ball.
Matunga Gymkhana batted for 41 overs scoring 105/9 surviving a narrow defeat from the hands of MB Union CC. With just one wicket in hand, Divakar Shetty (12* off 87 balls) at no.8 and Saif Abbas (2* off 24) somehow did not threw away their wickets fighting it out till the end of the game’s play in what was a memorable and courageous effort put by Matunga Gymkhana.
The match ended in a draw with no 1st innings results being obtained while we got to witness some proper red ball test cricket at its best.
