Played at the National CC, Cross Maidan, Mangrol CC batting first on a bowler friendly wicket were all out for 119 runs in 49.2 overs. Mangrol CC who were 3/7 at one stage somehow reached a respectable total thanks to a gritty 40 by Pravin Vagare. From the bowlers, Akshay Thakur (3/40) and Amith Rao (3/14) were the pick of the lot.
Chembur Gymkhana in reply received an equally fightback by the bowlers and especially by medium pacer Rohit Bhere who was looking dangerous to finish of the game for his team. Rohit came up with excellent bowling figures of 5/18 in 14 overs with 5 maidens which reduced Chembur Gymkhana to 71/7. However, at the end of the 32nd over, the match ended with a draw but it was a spell which certainly raised hopes for Mangrol team for a win on 1st innings lead!
