Pune: Middle order batsman Prathmesh Deshpande provided solidity to Cognizant’s foundation, while Ishaan Narang’s all-round show steered ATOS to a nail-biting victory on the third weekend of the FLAME University Corporate Cricket T20 League 2019 at the FLAME University Campus in Lavale here on Sunday.
