Dwij stars with 51 & a fifer in the same match while Kolhatkar saves the day for Superstar SC in the D Div Kanga League’19
Evergeen Sports Club after being put to bat first at Oval Maidan were in deep trouble at one stage with their scoreboard reading 5/25 however it was Dwij Adhvaryu at no.9 turning the tables for his team with a gritty half century. Dwij came at a time when a 3 digit total also looked difficult but he kept the scoreboard ticking hitting a quick 44 ball 51* (5 fours, 1 six) to propel Evergreen SC from 25/5 to 180/9 in 36.5 overs. Quickter Aditya Kolhatkar bowled a supreme spell of fast bowling
It was a match to remember though as Superstar SC who were on the verge of defeat somehow escaped with one wicket in hand at the end of the game’s play. Bhushan Tandel at no.7 showed resistance facing 72 balls for his unbeaten 13* while tailender Aditya Kolhatkar dodged 16 deliveries unbeaten to ensure his team ends the game in a draw which also meant one point for Superstar SC. From the bowlers, Dwij Adhvaryu was fantastic taking 5/39 in 18 overs alongwith 7 maidens while left arm spinner Sanket Joshi taking 4/30 in 23 overs alongwith 12 maidens.
Aditya on the back of his excellent performance in local cricket also got selected in the U19 Vinood Mankad Trophy for Mumbai while Dwij Adhwaryu becomes only the 2nd player this season across all divisions to achieve the feat of taking 5 wkts & scoring 50 in Kanga League’19
