Gomel falls 4 short of 2019 Kanga’s fastest ton as Parsee Gymkhana wins in the B Div Kanga League’19
Parsee Gymkhana after being made to bat first by the Dadar Parsee Colony Sports Club on their homeground did a fairly good job with the bat declaring their innings at 134/5 in 20.4 overs. Right-handed opener Aakarshit Gomel scored more than half of the team runs displaying an aggressive brand of cricket. Aakarshit who is known for his solid batting showed that he has two dimensions to his batting and he can change gears at will quite evident from his fluent 96 coming in mere 65 balls which had 7 fours and 6 sixes. Aaakarshit fell mere 4 runs short of what could have been the fastest ton of this year’s Kanga.
DPC Sports Club in reply were all out for 54 runs thanks to some really tight bowling by the Parsee Gymkhana bowlers. Left arm spinner Aditya Dhumal was the pick of the lot taking 4/20 while Aavishkar Salvi (2/7) and Shivam Malhotra (2/9) also chipped in nicely.
Parsee Gymkhana won the match on 1st innings lead on the back of Aakarshit’s fiery 96 while it was an impressive all-round show by their bowlers too.
