Swamibapa Sports Club Development recorded their second consecutive win with a six – wicket victory over Goan Institute Unicorns ‘B’ in their Nairobi Provincial Cricket Association (NPCA) Division II fixture played on 25th July 2021 at Goan Institute grounds.
The hosts failed to spark after being sent in to bat, getting themselves bowled out for 93 runs in just 26.5 overs. It was therefore not a mystery that only two batters in Sunil Pindoria and Raj Patel returned double figures of 18 and 16 respectively.
Swamibapa’s bowling was crisp, Bhavesh Varsni topping the tally with 4/18 while Kishan Kerai (2/19) and Paresh Kerai (2/25) backed him up, the trio sharing 18 overs.
In return, the visitors only consumed five balls less than their counterparts to achieve the target, perhaps, due to a more sustained batting performance. Skipper Sailesh Kerai led with a 43 – ball 23 runs with Kaushal Jesani putting up 23 off 31 balls. Rajan Limbani finished unbeaten on 20 off 19.
Raj Patel was the pick of the bowlers for the Unicorns with 4/18 off seven overs.
