Daiwat’s 82 in vain as Pratik Surve’s 77 helps Accenture clinch a win in the JFSC Classic League’21
Accenture Team after being put to bat first at Fatima Cricket Ground in Mumbai posted a very competitive total on board scoring 177/5 in 20 overs. Opener Leon set the stage with a solid 53 off 44 balls while Pratik Surve was the game changer coming up with an aggressive 77 off mere 31 balls, an innings which included 5 fours and 7 sixes at a strike rate of almost 250.00! From the bowlers, Meer with 3 wickets and Amit with 2 wickets were the pick of the lot.
Chasing 178, Yes Cricket Club gave a very good fight but eventually fell short by 9 runs as they scored 168/6 in 20 overs at the end of the gameplay. The highlight of their chase was a brilliant 82 by Daiwat Rane who came at no.3 and almost pulled off the match with his enterprising batting smashing 8 fours and 2sixes. Subhash with an unbeaten 30* off 19 balls was the 2nd highest scorer. Pratik Surve certainly owned the match as the all-rounder was their pick of the bowlers too taking 2/31 in 4 overs as Accenture went on to win by 9 runs.
Pratik Surve for his all round performance was declared man of the match.
