Ankit Vohra, captain of Mahindra Aura’s team, became the Man of the Match. He had hit four sixes and one four. He also took two wickets and two catches.

Vohra said, “After losing the toss, we batted first. The target proved a bit hard to chase by Atharva team. We won due to our good fielding and tight bowling.”

Vikram Tomar, another player of the winning team, said, “After losing the toss and scoring just 144, we were a bit apprehensive about the outcome of the match. But our captain motivated us and we won the match.”
