Jagdish Sure (69) and Pranay Ranka (54) help Arch Mavericks clinch a crucial win in the Architects T20’20
Arch Mavericks opting to bat first at Vengsarkar Academy, Mahul were off to a dismal start with their opener Abhishek back into the hut in the very 2nd ball of the match. It required someone to carry on and stitch a partnership and Jagdish Sure coming at no.3 played the perfect foil to opener Pranay Ranka as both the players stitched a record 166 run stand for the 2nd wicket. Opener Pranay scored a gritty 54 off 43 balls while Jagdish Sure top scored for his team smashing 69 runs off 53 balls (9 fours, 1 six). Mehul’s quick 16 ball 34 at no.4 further lended the finishing touch to the innings as Arch Mavericks reached a healthy total of 185/3 in 20 overs.
AESA Pune XI in reply were all out for 146 runs with Nikhil Jain, Vimal Hansraj and Shamal Palod bagging 2 wkts each while Vimal with 2/14 in 4 overs being the pick of the lot.
Result- AESA XI win by 39 runs, Jagdish Sure declared ‘man of the match’
