Opener Jay Bista’s cracking century knock (111 runs) powered Greater Mumbai Police SC to a comprehensive 58-run victory against Karnatak Sporting Association and to march into the semi-finals of the Late Vijay Manjrekar & Late Ramakant Desai T20 cricket tournament 2018, organised by Shivaji Park Gymkhana and played at the Bengal Club ground, Shivaji Park.

After Mumbai Police won the toss and decided to bat, Bista and his opening partner Shahid Shaikh (39 runs) put together a 102 run partnership, which laid the foundation for them to pile up a challenging total of 197 for the loss of 7 wickets from their 20 overs.

In reply Karnatak were restricted to 139 for 8 wickets. Half centuries from Shabal Shaikh (50 runs) and Aboo Torabb (50 runs) were the only KSA batsmen to get some runs on the board. Chirag Khurana (3/22), Yogesh Jagtap (2/19) and Sachin Shinde (2/31) were the key bowlers who picked up the wickets for the Police team.
