Debutante, Ajithesh Koushal, earned the Saachi Man of the Match award for his match winning 3/24 and 21 runs in a Japan Cup match against Tokyo Wombats at the YCAC.
With an abundant bench strength, the club decided to field two separate teams in the Kanto Cricket League. Vinay Iyer will lead team A and Pavethy will lead team B. Vinay will be skipper for Japan Cup and all other matches too.
This season, many players are stepping up their game and leading the team by strong performance. Bidyut Sarkar, a stylish left handed batsman has been in sublime form and he showcased it in a Kanto Cricket League 40over league match. Asked to open the batting against the Fuji Far East Team, his inning was full of confident defence, leaving good balls outside off stump, graceful cover drives, square cuts. With his temperament, he was on his way to first 50 and may be 100 of the season however it was cut short by rare lapse of concentration for well made 38 runs. Sometimes stats do not tell the real story.
This effort earns him “Saachi Partners Man of the Match”.
We are sure that the big score is certainly around the corner.
