“It’s a great feeling to win any game but so far the games I have played this is the biggest victory in terms of wicket in T-20 and I am feeling good to contribute for the team,” Akash Kumar said.
The Meghalaya batsmen reached the target in 18 overs without losing a wicket. For Meghalaya, Kishan scored 85 runs off 47 balls and Khurana scored 52 runs off 45 balls.
