Tank’s 109 tanks Dadar Union while Musheer bags a hat-trick laden fifer in the Young Comrade Shield’20
Payyade Sports Club after being put to bat first posted a total of 253/10 in 48.3 overs. It was a decent top order start with opener Hersh Tank and Auti putting on 82 runs together for the 2nd wicket, however the wickets fell a bit quickly post that partnership or else a 300+ total also looked possible at one stage. MPL Player Hersh opening the innings went on to score a brilliant 109 off mere 93 balls laced with 14 fours and 4 sixes. An innings where he was playing his natural game with controlled aggression. From the bowlers, off-spinner Praful Devkate who has a similar bowling action like R Ashwin was quite impressive taking 6/74 in 20.2 overs.
Defending 253, it was Musheer Khan emerging as a trump card for Payyade to trouble the opposition players. Young Musheer post his comeback has taken heaps of wickets for Mumbai in the U16 Circuit and he continues to dazzle this time taking 5/33 in 8.5 overs which also included a hat-trick where he cleaned up the lower order with his wily spin. For Dadar Union, Siddarth Akre was the only shining spot with 66 runs at no.5 while rest of the batters found it difficult to get going getting all out for 116 runs in26.5 overs.
Result-Payyade SC won by 137 runs
