Multi-talented Imran from Hanan Cricket Club also failed to score runs and was dismissed with clever bowling and field placement by Pacific Venture captain Yogesh Penkar. In reply, Pacific Venture’s Krishna Satpute scored a quick 30 before falling to a mistimed shot. Captain cool Yogesh Penkar managed to achieve the target.
