Automotive Cricket Club emerged champions as they managed to pull off a 28-run victory against Greater Mumbai Police in the Elite Division final of the 13th Insurance Shield T20 Inter-Office Cricket Tournament 2024, organised by Oriental Insurance Company under the aegis of MCA (Mumbai Cricket Association) and played at Cross Maidan on Tuesday evening.

Opening batsman Jiniv top-scored with a 39-ball 43 runs, lower order batters Jagdish Jadvav and Darsh Murkute contributed 26 runs and 19 runs respectively, which helped lift the innings. The remaining batters failed to get going and lost their wickets cheaply.

Later, the Automotive bowling attack spearheaded by Visheshwar Singh did most of the damage by claiming five wickets for 20 runs, while teammates Jagdish Jadhav two wickets for 13 runs and Jayshal Wadival two wickets for 17 runs picked up the other wickets to restrict Mumbai Police 95 all out in 19 overs.

Automotive CC’s bowler Vishveshwar was the obvious choice for the ‘Player of the Final’ award. Swapnil Kulaye of Greater Mumbai Police bagged the ‘Player of the Series’ award.
