Gateway down Road Raiders

By Sports reporter

GUWAHATI, May 7 � The 1st GTC LNJ T20 Corporate Champions League played at the Judges� Field saw another cliffhanger when Gateway Royals (GR) defeated Jain Group Kedar Road Raiders (KRR) by three wickets. Needing 20 off the last over and four off the last delivery, Rakesh Gohil 52 not out (26 balls) played the innings of his life to propel GR to victory.

Recovering from a seemingly impossible situation at 64 for 7 wickets, Gohil in the company of Prashanta Sonowal scored the requisite 76 runs in a little over 5 overs to lead his team to a most improbable victory.

Earlier, batting first after winning the toss, KRR riding on the brilliant strokeplay of Rishabh Das 59 (47 balls) and a more sedate 43 (46 balls) from Saurabh Bhagawati, posted a competitive total of 139 for 5 wickets in their 20 overs. Rakesh Gohil and Amit Boro picked up two wickets each.

Chasing 140 for victory, GR faltered initially and lost 7 wickets for only 64 runs. It was at this stage that the duo of Gohil and Sonowal staged their heroics and GR finally secured their second win of the tournament in four matches. KRR, with this loss have also won two out of the four matches played by them. Rakesh Gohil was the obvious choice for the man-of-the-match award.
