The 25-over tournament, which is held under the auspices of the Dubai Cricket Council (DCC) and organised by the Sindhi Cricket Club, saw two heroic performances on the day from Manish Mirchandani of Vintage and Anil Adnani of United.

However it was Mirchandani’s 21 runs and four wickets which helped him bag the man-of-the-match award as Anil’s two wickets and an unbeaten 60 failed to pull United to victory.

Put into bat, Vintage Victorious never looked settled against some good, tidy bowling from Chirag Makhija, Anil Adnani, Ronak Aswani and Jeetinder Singh.

With wickets falling around him Mirchandani went on the offensive and pulled off a 19-ball 21. That gave Dilip Kundnani some confidence as he too went for his shots.

He struck five boundaries in his 37 but his run-out brought United back in the match.

United’s reply was equally tame as they lost three wickets. It was left to Anil Adnani and Chiraj Makhija to stem the rot.

Anil (60 off 43 balls) and Chirag gave their team some hope. But once Chirag departed Anil was left with little support from the rest of the batsmen as Manish Mirchandani ran amok by bagging four wickets to win the match for Vintage.
