Team Green’s Kedar Jagtap scored fine half century to guide his side to an eight wicket win over Team Blue in the T20 cricket tournament organised by VCA at Jamtha Stadium. In another match Nayan Chavan’s 81 went in vain as Team Sky Blue defeated Team Red by 12 runs. Batting first, Team Blue posted 127 runs from 20 overs with Suraj Rai top scoring with 39-ball 43. He slammed four boundaries and a six. The other notable socrers for Team Blue were openers Satyam Bhoyar (14R; 10b, 1x4, 1x6), Ganesh Satish (14R; 25b, 4x4) and Mayank Jasore (20R; 10b, 2x4, 1x6). For Team Green, Manan Doshi was the most successful bowler with three wickets.
