28yr old Left Arm Spinner Akshay Jain has certainly proved his mettle in the limited overs displaying consistent range of performances in the Pondicherry T10 Tournament. The left arm tweaker did not only end up becoming the highest wicket taker but also achieved the best economy rate amongst all the bowlers.
Akshay who represented Smashers Team which also won the finals of the T10 Tournament took 24 wkts in 15 games at an economy of 6.76 which helped him bag Best Bowler of the Tournament award. Akshay’s performance will certainly be noted going ahead for the upcoming domestic season for Pondicherry’s Senior Team. In the all important finals vs Kings, Akshay bagged 2/7 in 2 overs while his best bowling figures came vs Warriors where he took 4/11 in 2 overs.
Akshay shared with Bombaynews.in “It’s certainly a great confidence booster to bag Best Bowler Award and to perform in a T10 match is an altogether different experience. You have to be at the top of your game because you only have 10-12 balls to prove your merit while batsmen are always on the hunt to attack the bowlers. So obviously emerging as top wicket taker has given me good confidence & I am looking forward to serve Pondicherry Senior Team with same motivation”
