Tripoorraj Dhavale’s tight spell helps ACE clinch a win in the South Mumbai Premier League’20
Played at the Somaiya Cricket Ground, Wicketing Wizards batting first could only muster a total of 75 runs as they were bundled out in 13.4 overs on the back of some tight bowling by the ACE Bowlers. Most of the bowlers were spot on but it was Tripoorraj Dhavale who was bang on right on the money coming up with a crucial spell of 4/12 in 3.4 overs alongwith a maiden.
Chasing 76 looked like a mere formality for the ACE XI as opener Jitin Manji (16* off 17) and no.3 batsman Niraj Bajaj finished off things in style with 9 wkts in hand alongwith 11.1 overs to spare. Niraj Bajaj played a fearless knock of 40* in mere 30 deliveries (5 fours. 1 six) as he was in no mood to take the game till the fag end.
Result- ACE XI won the game by 9 wkts, Tripoorraj Dhavale was declared man of the match’
