Even though the team got defeated in this match and their dream of winning the trophy once again remained incomplete but the team’s bowler Harshal Patel performed brilliantly.
During this match, he achieved a big achievement by taking two wickets. Harshal had a great season this season and he was the highest wicket-taker.
