Maharashtra Young Cricketers batting first were all out for 188 runs wherein Prashant Mhamunkar (67) and Amit Kori (43) top scored for their team. Amongst the bowlers, it was Mihir Khandhar who took 4/51 being the pick of the lot.
Star CC who were off to a patchy start with openers falling out early got back into the game, thanks to a scintillating 127*off mere 94 balls by their no.3 batsman Vinod Ade. It was a hurricane knock consisting of 8 sixes and 4 boundaries as he took on the bowlers with domination. Ratna Nadar who came at no.4 & scored 54 runs stitched a match winning partnership with Vinod as Star CC declared their innings at 223/5 winning the match on 1st innings lead.
By the way this was Vinod’s debut kanga league match & his 127* is also the highest individual score this year in Kanga across all the divisions.
