Hind Kala Cricket Club after being put to bat first at Sainath Sports Club, Virar could only muster a total of 59/9 in 20 overs with most of the batsman finding it difficult to get going vs the tight bowling of Rising Star Bowlers. Off-Spinner Mann Bhanushali came up with a ripper of a spell taking 3 wkts for 8 runs in his spell of 4 overs. What’s more the Mumbai U14 Probables took 3 wkts in just 4 deliveries which proved to be the turning point in the game. Apart from Mann, Chirag Modak with 2/8 in 4 over alongwith a maiden was the 2nd best of the lot.
For Rising Star, it was a mere formality to chase down the total as opener Abhigyan Kundu (20 off 31) ensured the chase was taken care of. Rising Star Cricket Academy eventually won the match by 8 wkts and 6.2 overs to spare.
Prateek Yadav from Hindkala Sports Academy with 201 runs in the tournament was declared the “Best Batsman” while Mann Bhanushali was declared the “Best Bowler of the Tournament”. Mann Bhanushali also won the man of the match award in the finals.
