Viraj Gandhi’s fifer steers Digital Broadcast team to a commanding win in the JFSC Elite T20 Tournament’21
Played at the picturesque Fatima Cricket Ground, Digital Broadcast XI after winning the toss opted to bat first posting a decent total of 160/6 in 20 overs. Even though none of their batters were able to convert their starts, the positive from their batting was everyone chipped in with quick 20’s and 30’s which ensured a 150+ total on the board. Atul Srivastava, their no.3 batsman top scored with 41 off 32 balls. From the bowlers, Chetan Kapoor with 4/25 was the pick of the lot.
Defending a total of 161 vs a team which just few days back scored a 250+ score in a t20 match, it certainly required a herculean task from their bowlers & Viraj Gandhi rose up to the occasion for Digital Broadcast XI. Viraj who was the 2nd change bowler came in at the 6th over and changed the course of the match with his disciplined line and length. Viraj returned with match winning bowling figures of 5/25 in 4 overs restricting Yodhas Strikers to 131/8 in 20 overs.
Viraj shared with Cricketgraph : “Yoddhas Strikers is a quality team, just few days back they had scored 250 on this same ground in a T20, they have 4-5 batters who are in excellent form and just fresh from their hundreds. So it was really a great feeling to perform vs such a quality team. I ensured bowling in good line and length and also adjusted the field accordingly which resulted in 5 catches in my bowling”
