Mumbai: Majhi Mumbai rode on an all-round performance from Abhishek Dalhor to defeat Chennai Singams by 58 runs and reach the final of the inaugural Indian Street Premier League – T10 tennis ball tournament at the Dadoji Kondadev stadium on Thursday.

Dalhor, the most expensive player of the inaugural edition of ISPL, vindicated Majhi Mumbai’s decision to loosen their purse strings during the auction to score 62 runs in 23 balls to help his team set up a massive target of 146 runs in the first semi-finals.

He then packed off the dangerous Ketan Mhatre in the second over as Chennai Singam’s were bowled out for 87 runs.

They amassed 39 runs in the next over as Majhi Mumbai scored 114 runs in the last five to virtually bat their opponents out of the match.

Chennai Singams needed openers Mhatre and Sanjay Kanojjiya to give them a strong start but Mumbai bowlers kept chipping wickets at regular intervals and sealed the match for the team.

Kanojjiya put up a lonely fight, scoring 60 run of 23 balls. Devid Gogoi claimed four wickets for eight runs for Majhi Mumbai.

Yogesh Penkar, the astute captain of Majhi Mumbai, expressed his delight at the team’s outstanding performance, stating, “The semi-final victory against Chennai Singams is a demonstration of hard work and dedication of every member of the team.
