Apollo CC after being put to bat first at Western Railways, Cross Maidan were reduced for a low total of 86 runs all out in 40 overs. Young Comrade CC skipper Shamit Shetty who also leads the team was the pick of the bowlers taking 5/36 in 13 overs with 3 maidens. Shamit who took a 5wkt haul even in his previous outing looks in really good shape coming up with crucial breakthroughs taking timely middle order wickets.
Young Comrade CC received a tough fight from the Apollo CC bowlers with scoreboard reading 63/7 and 72/8 at one stage. However, Shamit under pressure chipped in with a crucial knock of 17* (21 balls) when only two wickets were in hand and he smashed a six to seal a win for his team on 1st innings lead.
Apollo CC batted for 16 overs in 2nd innings with middle order batsman Kushal Kakkad scoring a whirlwind knock of 61*in just 33 balls (8 fours, 2 sixes) probably making it the fastest 50 so far in this season across all divisions.
