Played at Bhayli Cricket Ground in Vadodara, Cricket Explained Academy after being put to bat first posted a total of 129/9 in 40 overs. Chirag Panchal (27* off 52 balls) and Ajinkya Deshpande (16 off 17) made handy contributions with the bat. Defending such a low total, the pressure was certainly more on Cricket Explained Academy but their bowlers did an excellent job of restricting Darshanam A Team for 120 all out in 38.2 overs.
Each and every bowler made contributions while Kartik Gorivale (2/5), Bhupesh Panchakshari (2/11) and Chirag Panchal (2/15) were the pick of the lot bagging 2 wkts each. It was also a very notable bowling performance by Captain Arya Sagare who conceded just 7 runs in 7 overs which included 3 maidens. Cricket Explained Academy won the finals by 9 runs and Chirag Panchal for his all round performance was declared ‘man of the match’
Cricket Explained Head Coach Hrishikesh Puranik shared “Boys played really well and we all are quite happy to go back home winning the series 2-1. Captain Aarya Sagare has showed good leadership skills as well as some strong performances, apart from him Chirag Panchal delivered in the finals under pressure which was also commendable. Kartik Gorivale, Aayush and Vaibhavi Raja also made their presence felt in the series through impressive performances and more importantly each and every player enjoyed the tour and contributed their bit whenever they got an opportunity.
