Sreesanth stares at Jaiswal, latter gives a fitting reply with the bat

The ongoing Syed Ali Mushtaq Ali Trophy has been well and truly entertaining and thanks to the cricketers for adding spice to the flavor. The match between Mumbai and Kerala kept the fans at the edge of their seats as players of both teams turned up the heat throughout the game.

Kerala began their venture with a fantastic 6-wicket win over Puducherry in their opening game. On the other hand, Mumbai failed to create the first impression as they lost their opener at the hands of Delhi. Delhi defeated Suryakumar Yadav’s side by 76 runs.

Mumbai were searching for ways to get back on track against Kerala. Kerala skipper Sanju Samson won the toss and elected to bowl first. Mumbai managed to score 196 for the loss of 7 wickets in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Aditya Tare top-scored with 42 off 31 including 4 fours and a six.

Mumbai skipper Suryakumar Yadav enjoyed batting at the crease as he scored a quickfire 38 off just 19 balls. His innings included 4 fours and 2 sixes as he struck the balls at a staggering strike-rate of 200.

Shivam Dube played his part by chipping in with 26 off just 13 balls including 2 fours and 2 sixes. While Kerala bowlers leaked too many runs, they ensured to take wickets at the same time. Jalaj Saxena who took 3 wickets in the opening fixture against Puducherry continued his good form with the ball by taking 3 wickets against Mumbai. KM Asif also took 3 wickets to his credit.

Jaiswal’s epic reply to Sreesanth

Mumbai opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal provided a blistering start to the game alongside his partner Aditya Tare. The duo scored runs at a quick pace and added an 88-run opening liaison.

During the game, Kerala pacer Sreesanth faced left-handed batsman Jaiswal. The 37-year-old pacer looked intimidating as tried his best to keep the youngster in check.

On the very first ball of the 6th over, Jaiswal tried to play a big shot off Sreesanth’s bowling. But, there was a swing and a miss. Meanwhile, Sreesanth went up to Jaiswal and stared at him for a few seconds.

But little did the pacer know what would Jaiswal do in the over as he smashed the pacer all over the park. Jaiswal thumped him into the orbit by hitting two sixes and a four in the over.

Mohammed Azharuddeen – Player of the Match

Kerala opener Mohammed Azharuddeen single-handedly took the bowling attack to the cleaners as he smashed a 37-ball century against Mumbai during the run-chase. Earlier, he added a 129-run stand with his opening partner Robin Uthappa (31).

Azharuddeen also found some support alongside his captain Sanju Samson (22) when they added a 61-run stand for the second wicket. Azharuddeen finished the innings with a staggering 137* off 54 balls including 9 fours and 11 sixes. Kerala successfully chased down the target in 15.5 overs.

Kerala are now second in the Group E points table with 8 points. They secured 2 wins in 2 games and gained 8 points. With a better Net Run Rate, Delhi are topping the table with 8 points. Delhi will play against Kerala in the next game on January 15 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
