Thane Friends CC after being put to bat first at Shivaji Park, Dadar were least affected with their openers toying the opposition bowlers with a brilliant 180 run stand for the 1st wicket in 28 overs. Opener Aditya Gangare smashed a solid 78 while his opening partner Nikhil Nikam went on to score a very confident & aggressive 103 in mere 93 balls. Nikhil kept the scoreboard ticking smashing 11 fours and 3 sixes while he received good support from no.3 batsman Swapnil Mhatre who scored an equally impressive 73 in just 50 balls. Vineet Thakkar who came at no.4 fell just 2 short of a deserving half century as he remained unbeaten scoring a quickfire 23 ball 48* (7 fours, 1 six).

Young Muslim Sports Club in reply were all out for 112 runs thanks to brilliant tight bowling by left arm spinner Sagar Dugaonkar (4/15) and all rounder Nikhil Nikam who also took 3 wkts conceding mere 6 runs as Thane Friends CC won the game by 227 runs.
