G.K.Kelkar Corporate Trophy- Day 5

A.G.Maharashtra, Central Railway, Axis Bank and Nirmal Urban post easy wins

A belligerent knockoff 66 from Amit Paunikar, duly supported by Praveen Shetty 35 , Sanjog Binkar 26 and Salil Agarkar’s unbeaten 25 allowed Central Railway to post respectable 166 for 7 and later dismiss South East Central Railway for 103 off 18.3 over to record a comfortable 63 runs win in the Corporate Cup (G.K.Kelkar-T20) Cricket Tournament at VCA Civil lines here today.

South East Central Railway medium pacer Pawan Kumar 5/28 bowled admirably well but his effort proved futile as his batting teammates perished playing some loose irresponsible shots. Only P.Vivek (34) showed some semblance of fight in otherwise lackluster performance.

Spineer Salil Agarkar claimed 3/25 while Rahul Jadhav and Shailesh Harbade shared 2 wickets apiece for the winners.
