Wellington CC win by a narrow margin: enter semis of the Bombay Junior Shield’20
Wellington CC after being put to bat first at Shivaji Park, Dadar posted 209/8 in 43 overs with skipper Sagar Shah at the middle order top scoring with 54 runs off 78 balls. The rest of the players chipped in with cameos but none of them were able to convert their starts into something substantial. From Vijaychandra CC, off-spinner Bharat Major with 3/29 in 9 overs was the pick of the lot.
Vijaychandra CC fancied their chances of winning the quarters with the top order chipping in well. Vikas Jaiswal (66 runs) and Vaishnav Sail (57 runs) even stitched a 118 run stand for the 3rd wicket which had made them favorites for an easy chase. However, left arm spinner Shantanu Kadam came at the right time dismissing both the set batsman to break the partnership which was threatening at one stage. Shantanu Kadam came up with an important spell of 4/51 while the rest of the bowlers also bowled tightly resulting in Vijaychandra CC falling short of just 1 run in the penultimate over.
Result-Wellington CC won by 1 run, win the Quarter-Finals.
