Pranay Ranka’s quick 69 & tight bowling by Vinay & Shamal steer Arch Mavericks to a win in the AT20 Championship’19
Arch Mavericks batting first at Chereshwar Club, Trombay posted a mammoth total of 214/5 in 20 overs. Opener Pranay Ranka gave a superb opening start scoring a quickfire 69 off 49 balls laced with 14 boundaries while quick cameos by Mehul Rathod (39 off 24) & Nikhil Jain (28* off 12) further provided icing on the cake during death overs.
Chasing 215, the pressure was obviously more on VK Architects to maintain a run rate of 10+ right from the beginning. The pressure of chasing took the better of them as VK Architects collapsed for a paltry total of 69 runs in 12.5 overs. It was some brilliant display of bowling by Shamal Palod (4/11 in 3.5 overs) & Vinay Kate (4/17 in 4 overs) who kept the batsman in check with their tight bowling.
Result- Arch Mavericks won the match by 146 runs while Pranay Ranka for his match winning 69 was declared ‘Man of the match”
