In reply, BEST Sports Club top-order batters failed miserably losing quick wickets cheaply and were finally restricted to just 115 runs for the loss of eight wickets from 20 overs. Middle-order bat Nilesh Kharmale took the fight to the opposition and managed to score 42 runs but it was not good to help his team chase down the winning target. Devraj Gaikwad scored 19 runs while Mumbai Municipal medium pacer Yogeshwar Kadoo two for 6 and left-arm pacer Dhiraj Solanki two for 37 put the brakes on the BEST batsmen and ensured their team snatched a deserving win.
