Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2018-19, Round 1: Round up

Shreyas Iyer Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy

Leading up to the IPL 2019, all the domestic teams indulged in the shortest format in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2018-19.

The first round of play in the tournament was terrific, to say the least. The performances from Mumbai and Bengal were the standout ones from the Round 1.

Shreyas Iyer hit a blazing 147 off 55 balls to help Mumbai defeat Sikkim by 154 runs in their opening match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy in Indore. The Mumbaikar’s 147 is the highest T20 score by an Indian surpassing the record of Rishabh Pant, who had scored an unbeaten 128 for Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.

His effort is also the 12th highest score by any batsman in the T20 cricket history. Cheteshwar Pujara hit an unbeaten 100 in 61 balls, but his knock went in vain as Railways chased down Saurashtra’s 189-run target with five wickets in hand at the Holkar Stadium.

Playing against Sikkim, Mumbai put up a massive total of 258 runs on the board. A 55-ball 147 from Shreyas Iyer and a 33-ball 63 from Suryakumar Yadav helped the side put such a big total. This 147 from Shreyas Iyer is also now the highest score by an Indian in T20s. The cricketer surpassed Rishabh Pant’s 128* during the IPL 2018. Mumbai registered a 154-run win as Sikkim could only get 104 runs in 20 overs.

Bengal’s encounter against Mizoram was dictated by Abhimanyu Easwaran who scored an unbeaten 107 off 56 balls. While his side put up 221 runs, the opposition was bowled out for just 62 conceding a 159-run win. Jharkhand and Puducherry managed to win by a three-run margin in their respective games. RCB’s new recruit Prayas Barman picked up a four-wicket haul in the game.

Cheteshwar Pujara‘s first T20 century went in vain as the Railways comfortably chased down the target of 189. A 39-ball 74 from Manish Pandey was another highlight of the day. A 5/9 from Vikas Yadav couldn’t save the game for his side, Services.
