Khar Gymkhana Ground dominated by the “Shaikh’s” in the B Div Kanga League’19

Khar Gymkhana taking on Young Mohmeddan CC on their ground was always going to be one interesting competition and the bowlers in the match ensured that the match remained a nail biter.

Khar Gymkhana after being put to bat first were bundled out for 152 runs thanks to a searing spell of fast bowling by Left arm quickster Rahil Shaikh. Rahil came up with stunning bowling figures of 7/60 in 17.1 overs. Rahil was spot on with the ball and most of the players could makeout how this bowler went on to play Irani Trophy for Mumbai as well as featuring in a game for Mumbai Indians in IPL as it was quality fast bowling on display.

However, Young Mohmeddan CC could not replicate their good bowling performance into batting as they were all out for 101 runs in 19.4 overs. Off Spinner Aatif Shaikh who has bagged a fifer even before this game and has been amongst the wickets this season continued to impress taking 5/18 in 5.4 overs in what turned out to be a match winning bowling spell as Khar Gymkhana won the match on 1st innings lead.
