Long Island Titans hosted Mumbai Express in the final game of Commonwealth Cricket League 30/30 tournament at Heckscher State Park on Long Island, NY. It was a sunny day with a little breeze and a perfect day for cricket.
Mumbai Express won the toss and elected to bowl. The Titans Scored 205 with a captain’s knock coming from Ajith Bhaskar, 97 not out off 61 balls, including four mighty sixes and 11 boundaries. Teammate Charandeep Singh Nanda scored 25 runs. Nilay Amin from Mumbai Express took three wickets and Hemanth Chandhra took two wickets.
Defending 205 was a big task for the Titans as it was a batting pitch, but it was Dhananjay Golia who created the early break through putting a break on Mumbai Express’ track. Mushtaba Ghulam scored 66, and Bhakee scored 33, which brought the game very close, but at Mumbai Express were all out for 178.
