Nitesh Pradhan (4/15) & Paresh Ghanekar (3/15) help Royal Falcons defend a low total in the Architects T20 Championship’20
Played at the Chereshwar Club, Trombay, Royal Falcons opting to bat first posted a total of just 100/8 in 20 overs which in most of the cases is difficult to defend. Royal Falcons at one stage were not looking good even for a 3 digit total but it was Prasad Roge (32) and Harsh Visaria (25*) down the order stitching 59 runs for the 8th wicket. From SSA Strikers, Dasrath Redij and Gaurav Koli bagged 3 wkts each.
Royal Falcons who have been one of the strong teams this season ensured that they did not gave up looking at their low total. The bowlers did a fab job restricting SSA Strikers to mere 76 runs all out in 16 overs. Nitesh Pradhan was the star bowler coming up with a crucial spell of 4/15 in 4 overs coupled with a maiden while Paresh Ghanekar with 3/15 in 4 overs was equally effective.
Result-Royal Falcons won the match by 24 runs, Nitesh Pradhan declared ‘Man of the Match”
