Juhu Vile Parle Gymkhana cueist Asutosh Padhye (+10) produced impressive, consistent performances to win all his four frames, which was instrumental in JVPG ‘Mafia’ recording twin victories, against Khar Gymkhana youngsters KG ‘Gully Boys’, by identical 3-1 margins in the home and away matches in Section-F.
