Kesha Patel – one of the most emerging all-rounders from Baroda continues to stamp her presence as a player to watchout for. Baroda after opting to bat first at Bindra Stadium in Mohali vs Punjab at one point looked in trouble with their top and middle order collapsing but it was Kesha who held fort from one end as she scored a fighting innings of 55* off 67 balls taking her team towards a respectable position. This not the first time, Kesha has come up with heroics down the order as she smashed 9 boundaries in her 80 min stay at the crease helping Baroda gain a lead of 165 runs.
