Captain Ananth Venkatraman shared with Cricketgraph “As a captain, this victory for me is special as i could attackingly lead my side to a 145 run victory. Baldev Maheshwari our opening batsman, who scored a fabulous hundred won man of match award and dedicated it to a young kid named Atharv from opposition team to boost his confidence as a sweet gesture”
Baldev who first won the heart with his batting later on won the hearts with his sweet gesture once again reminding all of us that Cricket is a gentleman’s game.
