PANAJI
Sahil Dhuri-led Krishna Constructions Sunday Champs start favourites against Nityanand Sports Club in the finals of first Geno Prudent T20 Cup at Goa Cricket Association academy ground, here on Sunday afternoon.
The match starts at 1.30 pm and will be telecast live on Prudent Media TV channel.
Sunday Champs beat pre-tournament favourites Dempo Juniors by four wickets in the semi-finals with a superior all-round performance on Friday. Amogh Desai was impressive with the ball and the bat, bagging the man-of-the match prize. His opening partner Ishan Gadekar also stamped his class with a strokeful half-century.
All-rounder Harshad Gadekar will look to bowl full-steam as he stakes his claim to get back into the State team for limited overs cricket season up ahead, following his long lay-off from injury problems. Rahul Keni, Ninad Pawaskar and captain Dhuri pack a punch in the Sunday Champs line-up.
Nityanand Sports Club depend on their captain Sagar Gosavi for wickets and the experienced pacer has been leading from the front. He took three wickets for just 19 runs in the victory over Ghumteshwar in the semi-finals.
They also have good spinners in the form of Dhiraj Yadav and Sriniwas Fadte. In the batting department, Goa opener Sumiran Amonkar holds the key. Batting at the top, talented right-hander, Sumiran has been in good form with two half-centuries to his credit so far.
If he fires in the final again, Nityanand can hope to challenge the Sunday Champs outfit. Sumiran, Amar Arkas, Pushpashil Desai, Achit Shigwan and Mahesh Rao form the cream of Nityanand
batting.
