Youngsters Karsh Kothari (6/50) & Musheer Khan (5/60) steal the day in the B Div Kanga League’19

It was a match between two really exciting teams, DY Patil is known for its deep and solid batting line up with experienced players alongwith senior bowlers while Young Mohmeddan CC is known for its young firepower blending with experienced local cricketers.

After being put to bat first on DY Patil’s homeground in Nerul, Young Mohmeddan CC were all out for 141/10 in 41.3 overs. Young Mohmeddan CC who were at one stage 3 down for 5 runs got back into the game with their middle and lower middle order playing some handy cameos. Left-arm spinner Karsh Kothari was the pick of the lot coming up with impressive bowling figures of 6/53 in 16.3 overs.

Bowling alongside experienced bowlers like Arun , PT and Bhoir, 23yr old Karsh certainly made an impact creating a space for himself in the powerful DY team.

DY Patil on the other hand surpassed the 1st innings lead declaring their innings at 143/7 in 33 overs winning the match on 1st innings lead. However, it was the father-son duo of Musheer Khan and Naushad Khan bagging all the 7 wkts between themselves. Musheer who is probably the youngest from both the teams managed to ruffle up the feathers of senior names like Subramaniam Doriaswamy, Kaustub Pawar, Sarvesh Damle amongst others. Musheer was allowed by MCA to play in local matches and he has certainly made a promising comeback in Kanga where he has chipped in with bat as well as with the ball.
