Kaustubh Pawar’s 141 helps Islam Gymkhana defeat JVPG by a big margin in the ongoing Madhav Mantri Tournament’21
Islam Gymkhana team batting first after winning the toss posted a very healthy total on board amassing 297/3 in 40 overs. The experienced Kaustubh Pawar continued his good form with the bat as he went on to score a game changing knock of 141 runs in mere 124 balls. It was domination all over from his bat as he took on the Juhu Vileparle Gymkhana bowlers with supreme confidence.
Kaustubh was well supported by his opening partner Mihir Agarwal (60 runs off 71 balls) while also stitched a 175 run opening stand for the 1st wicket. Apart from them, Musavir Khote (40*) & Kamran Chaudhary (38*) chipped in with the bat as they reached a very good defendable total on board.
Juhu Vile Parle Gymkhana in reply could only manage 176/7 in 40 overs courtesy some tight bowling by Islam Gymkhana bowlers. Off-break bowler Akshay Girap with 3/22 was the pick of the lot while other bowlers also bowled economical bowling spells as Islam Gymkhana cruised towards a comfortable victory by 121 runs.
