Dhruven Gaikwad’s 113* puts Young Comrade CC in command in the Purshottam Shield’19

Young Comrade CC batting first at PJ Hindu Gymkhana, Marine Lines posted a healthy total of 392/6 in 70 overs which in anyday is a good total to defend. After their top order consisting of Suraj Singh (73) & Yogesh Dongare (68) giving a solid start with a 120 run stand for the 2nd wicket, it was Dhruven at no.4 perfectly carrying on the positive momentum. Dhruven went on to hit a counter attacking knock of 113*in just 80 balls as he smashed 17 fours to take on the bowlers with pure domination. Mayuresh Tandel with 47 runs gave good support while Nikhil Jadhav remained 37* at the end of Young Comrade’s innings.

Sind SC on the back of Satyalaksh Jain’s solid 91 off 125 balls (9 fours, 3 sixes) did manage to ruffle up the feathers of the opposition but Sind SC eventually were all out for 274 runs in 51.4 overs. The bowlers did a commendable job with Akram Shaikh and skipper Shamit Shetty bagging 3 wkts each.


Young Comrade CC eventually went on to win the match by 118 runs.
