Once upon a time, he was known for his five-wicket haul, and out of nowhere, it happened today (possibly the last one, as he mentioned). Mr. 45, Rishi Joshi, who typically is a decent fast bowler, astonishingly dismantled the top-order batting lineup with his slow-pace (age-related??) bowling. In a remarkable feat, he delivered 7 overs with 32 dot balls, claiming 5 wickets while maintaining an economy rate of 2.00. He also contributed with the bat, finishing as the 3rd highest run-scorer. Splendid, Rishi!
Dhruv's explosive batting exhibition, reminiscent of the fiery Sehwag Paaji, was an absolute joy. With 5 sixes and a boundary, he emerged as the day's highest scorer, tallying an impressive 49 runs in 49 balls, narrowly missing a half-century by just one run. What a remarkable performance, Dhruv Yadav!
Even though, at times, the heavy lifting is done by a couple of individuals, when all is said and done, this remains a team sport, and the collective efforts of the team secure victories!
The Spartans bounced back,
After last week's setback,
The team's triumph deserves celebration,
Great Win, Spartans. Congratulation!
