Played at Rahul Cricket Ground in Telangana, Velosio after being put to bat first almost collapsed with scoreboard reading 48/5 in the 14th over. However, Hyderabad Cricket’s young prodigies Aryan Reddy and G Prem fought it out stitching a 107 run stand for the 6th wicket to help their team reach a respectable total. While Aryan coming at no.6 remained unbeaten scoring a brilliant 56* off 71 balls (5 fours), G Prem coming at no.7 scored 60 off 95 balls as both the youngsters displayed solid composure under pressure.
DBCA Seniors in reply chased down the score winning the match by 1 wicket. Velosio did gave a tough fight but DBCA eventually crossed the victory line with last wicket in hand. All-Rounder Aryan Reddy was the pick of the lot with the ball taking 3/24 in 6 overs.
Even though, Velosio lost the match, they did gave a hard time to the DBCA Seniors and it wasn’t an easy win for sure for them! It was also commendable to see young cubs Aryan and G Prem showing maturity at the crease when their team was in deep trouble.
For the uninitiated, Aryan and G Prem both are in the Hyderabad State Team contentions. Aryan has so far notched up 6652 runs at a stunning batting average of close to 56.00 in 163 matches alongwith 153 wkts while G Prem has around 5000 runs with an average of 36.00 coupled with 183 wkts in 209 games.
