SSpark T20 Cricket Cup started off in an explosive manner at Panther Cricket Stadium in Jaipur. In Match 2 of Day 1 of the tournament between Hawa Mahal Cricket Club (HMCC) and Jaipur Sports, HMCC batsman Shubham Giri took Jaipur Sports' bowlers to the cleaners during his unbeaten 117-run knock. During his knock, Giri also broke a few records as he smashed 34 runs off one over during the contest.
Shubham Giri storms in Jaipur
After the end of 12 overs, Hawa Mahal Cricket Club (HMCC) were well placed at 116/2. They had just lost the wicket of well-set Vishal Chhimpa in previous over and there was a risk that they might lose momentum. However, Shubham Giri had completely different plans. The right-handed batsman had spent some at the crease and was looking good. It was in the next over when Giri completely destroyed bowler Hansraj. The HMCC batsman hit 6, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6 in the six deliveries, smashing 34 runs in a single over.
