Syed Mushtaq Ali T20: Moorthy fifer helps Puducherry beat Mumbai

Mumbai were blown away for just 94 runs by Puducherry here at the Wankhede Stadium in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy and lost the match by six wickets. Puducherry’s Shanta Moorthy took five wickets for 20 runs and Shivam Dube was Mumbai’s highest scorer on just 28 runs.

Dube put up a stellar performance with the ball, however, conceding just eight runs in four overs and two wickets. However, the target was too low for Mumbai to defend as Puducherry ended up with a score of 95/4 in 19 overs.
