Sandip was the chief architect of the Infosys batting as he compiled a well-deserving 37-ball 62 after losing his opening partner Pankaj Jinta early on and went on to put on a stand of 97 runs for the second wicket with Sainath Shinde (47--43b, 1x4, 1x6) as Infosys scored 158 for 5 in the allotted 20 overs after Persistent put them to bat.

PUNE: Sabir Shaikh and Sandip punched much above their waist to steer their respective teams, Syntel and Infosys to contrasting wins on the fourth weekend of the FLAME University Corporate Cricket T20 League 2019 at the FLAME University Campus in Lavale on Sunday.

Sandip was the chief architect of the Infosys batting as he compiled a well-deserving 37-ball 62 after losing his opening partner Pankaj Jinta early on and went on to put on a stand of 97 runs for the second wicket with Sainath Shinde (47--43b, 1x4, 1x6) as Infosys scored 158 for 5 in the allotted 20 overs after Persistent put them to bat.

Persistent’s chase was thwarted as wickets fell regularly with Sagar Dubey finding the good line. 

At one stage Persistent were 23 for 3 and 33 for 4 and only Sushant Bansal’s 40 not out innings saved them some blushes before the Infosys boys inflicted a 78-run victory.
