Vijay Singh strikes with a match winning 91 for Old Monks in JFSC Elite T20 League’21
Anonymous Knights after being put to bat first at Vengsarkar Cricket Ground, Ambapada scored 164/7 in 20 overs. Knight’s reliable opener Varun Madnani was again amongst the runs top scoring with 72 runs off 48 balls smashing 8 fours and 3 sixes. From the bowlers, experienced campaigners Sandeep Dahad (2/25 in 4 overs) and Rohan Bane (2/26 in 4 overs) were the pick of the lot for Old Monks.
Old Monks chasing 165 were off to a shaky start with scoreboard reading 4/34, 6/72 and 7 for 92 at different stages. However, that one guy who stood firm despite the loss of wickets from the other end was Vijay Singh at no.5. Vijay started off cautiously but changed gears in the death overs resulting in a match winning knock of 91* off mere 46 balls smashing 9 fours and 6 sixes at a strike rate of almost 200! It was Vijay Singh’s herculean efforts along with tailender Pritam Shinde’s (9* off 8) support, Old Monks crossed the victory line in 2nd last ball of the match winning the match by just 1 wicket.
