Prathamesh Golatkar & Rakesh Naik dominate with the ball vs KRP XI in the G Div Kanga League’19

KRP XI after being put to bat first at Oval Maidan could muster up a total of only 65/10 in 36 overs.  KRP XI suffered a collapse by the hands of Borivali CC skipper Rakesh Naik who yet again came up with a impressive spell. Left arm spinner Rakesh took 5/16 in 10 overs while he was nicely supported by Prathamesh Golatkar who took 2/10 in 10 overs along with 4 maidens. Both the left arm spinners made life difficult for the batsman while it was the experienced local cricketer Padmanubhan Mudaliar at no.4 fighting it out with a gritty 32 runs to save his team from an embarrassing 1st innings total.

Borivali CC in reply scored 120/4 in 36 overs thanks to some solid knocks by opener Tushar Tiwari (44) and the experienced Sushant Kadam (54 off 66 balls) helping Borivali CC win the match on 1st innings lead. KRP XI batted in 2nd innings too losing 8wkts for 29 runs where in Prathamesh Golatkar took 4/9 in 9 overs with 4 maidens.

It must be a mixed feeling for Rakesh Naik who used to be the skipper and one of the crucial players of KRP XI in his previous seasons! By the way Rakesh is now in the top of the highest wicket takers list with 14 wkts in 3 innings at an average of 2.00. Prathamesh has also been impressive this season with 11 scalps in 5 innings.
