KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting Club beat Dalhousie Athletic Club by 23 runs in the JC Mukherjee T-20 Trophy on Saturday at Kalighat Ground as Trisul Das’ counter-attacking knock of 61 from 31 balls went in vain for Dalhousie.
Chasing a mammoth 207-run target, Dalhousie could only manage to reach 183/5 in 20 overs. For Mohammedan SC, leg spinner Saumya Pakray (2/20) was the pick of their bowlers.
Dalhousie was always in the run chase helped by impressive half-centuries from Sarfaraz Hussain (72) and Trisul Das (61) but lost couple of wickets in between to end their innings, thanks to some tight and tidy spells by Mohammedan SC bowlers.
Earlier, brilliant half-centuries from opener Nishant Dave (74) and Priyankar Mukherjee (58) helped Mohammedan SC set a huge target of 207 for Dalhousie. Priyankar was declared Player of the Match for his blistering knock of 58 from 32 balls.
