FRCC sent in Sumeet and Amal and from the very 1st ball it was Sumeet Khule’s show. He was timing everything so nicely and sending the ball out of the park in all directions. With star bowlers missing and injured Bodha, Sumeet had a blast with rapid fire 50(27b 4x4 4x6), taking FRCC to 64 in just 5 overs.
With rain getting heavier, Bodha was brought into attack but it was too late as Sumeet was middling everything. In next 2 overs FRCC added 24 more runs taking the score to 90/0 in 7 overs. Rain got much heavy and hence game was called off at this stage, FRCC declared winners of the RMSG 2017.
