Wicketkeeper batter Kinjal Kumari’s smashing 115 not out of just 54 balls, embellished with 17 fours and 4 sixes enabled Sainath SC to crush hosts Sporting Union by 77 runs in Group A of the 4th Ajit Ghosh Trophy Women’s T-20 Cricket tournament at Matunga Gymkhana, Mumbai. With this their second win, Sainath SC have almost clinched a semis berth.

In a Group B tie, of this event organised jointly by Kalyadas Memorial Sports Foundation and Europem, MIG CC toyed with the rival Europem attack and crossed their score of 152/2 in just 14.4 overs losing only one wicket. An unbeaten 64 by Mehek Mistry was the highlight of MIG’s innings.

Sainath’s total of 225/3 proved too much for Sporting. Despite opener Anjali Singh’s 70 and Bhavana Sanap’s 24, the rest of the batters failed to stick around. Riya Pawar (79 no) of Europem did well with the bat with some support from Aditi Kadam (24) which proved inadequate.

There were two close finishes when Dashing SC and Sainath SC squeaked over MIG CC and National CC with just two balls to spare in low-scoring matches.
