Kanga League’19: Wicket-keeper batsman Siddarth Sharma scores a quick 37 ball 63 for Amar CC
On uneven wet wickets and grounds with more grass, it’s a known fact that it’s very difficult to score runs. Kanga League has been a tournament which has been dominated by the bowlers since decades. Scoring fifties and hundreds are always considered impressive in this league and Siddarth Sharma just impressed one and all with his aggressive brand of batting in his debut match of the season.
Matunga Gymkhana after being put to bat first at Dadkar Maidan declared their innings on 81/7 in 17.5 overs. Thanks to their experienced all-rounder Ninad Borkar playing a crucial knock of 44 runs in 42 balls saving the grace for his team. Off-spinner Arya Pol with 3/33 was the pick of the bowlers for Amar CC.
Amar CC despite a sluggish opening start batted really well scoring 115/2 in 17 overs at the end of the game’s play. Amar CC took a 1st innings lead thanks to a swashbuckling knock by Siddarth Sharma who took on the bowlers with his brute hitting. Siddarth scored 63* in mere 37 balls which had just 1 boundary but a stunning 7 sixes to his name. Siddarth alongwith Rohan Gahhar (22* off 13) were enjoying the last few overs hitting freely to every bowler coming their way.
