Markopolo Lions after being put to bat first at the lush and beautiful Western Railway Ground in Lower Parel could’nt make much of an impact as they managed a modest total of 118/8 in 20 overs. Rahul Pandey who came at no.4 was the only batter who scored 20+ with the bat as most of the players couldn’t convert their starts into a big score. Bowlers from Balasinor Tigers team collectively bowled well with Hastiv Sanghavi, Vikrant Rambhia and Ishaan Sheth bagging 2 wkts each.
Chasing 119 looked like a mere formality for Balasinor Tigers as they won the match by 6wkts and 2.1 overs to spare. Opener Dinesh Patel who has been in great nick off lately guided the chase with 45 off 33 balls. Dinesh recently scored a quick hundred few days back and he continued his form in the Billmart GCH Super League for his franchise Balasinor Tigers. At the middle order, Amit Dassani (22 off 17), Salil Babardesai (26* off 31 balls) and Mishit Shah (16* off 22 balls) provided crucial cameos.
Result: Balasinor Tigers won by 6 wkts, Dinesh Patel declared ‘man of the match’
