PORVORIM: SK Jogging scored an easy 10-wicket victory over Betim United in the ongoing 1st Manohar Parrikar Trophy Cricket Tournament organised by Yuva de Goa in association with Pilerne Cricket Club at GCA academy ground, here today.
SK Jogging medium-pacer Anush Kerkar was named man-of-the match for his brilliant bowling as he returned impressive figures of 3/8 in his four overs.
Betim United were dismissed for 55 runs in 15.2 overs, the lowest total in the tournament so far, as their batsmen were poor in their shot selection after they were put into bat. Those who got into double digits were Pritesh Naik (12), Triroy Kubal (11) and Gauresh Parab (10). However, their effort was not up to the mark while SK Jogging bowlers spearheaded by accomplished Goa Ranji Trophy pacer Harshad Gadekar, were totally dominant.
Along with Anush, who was the pick of the bowlers, leg-spinner Basuraj Madar and captain Dhiraj Narvekar took two wickets each. Harshad Gadekar and Sagar Vantamuri picked up one wicket apiece.
In reply, SK Jogging raced to 56 without loss in 7.5 overs and entered the quarter-finals. Openers Rajat Kudalkar (27) and Vaibhav Naik (25) guided the team with an unbeaten partnership.
