The second edition of the T20 Mumbai League came to an end with the North Mumbai Panthers clinching the title.

While some of them relished the challenge and were outstanding, a few others ended up disappointing. On the other hand, there were also those who despite their team’s unimpressive performance, gave it their all and tried to put their best foot forward. Here is the Best XI of those players who produced the most recognizable performances in this tournament.

Prithvi Shaw had a brilliant tournament and finished as the leading run-scorer. He led his team from the front and played a very important knock in the final as well. Given that he utilised the resources better than many other captains and considering his U19 experience, he will lead this side as well. Shaw hit three fifties in the season, the joint highest along with Akhil Herwadkar and Aditya Tare.

The ARCS Andheri team finished second on the points table and Akhil Herwadkar had a huge role to play. He missed out in the first game and got only 26 runs. But in the next match, he scored a crucial 56 in a successful chase. Herwadkar bettered his performance against Shivaji Park Lions where he was unbeaten on 79 off 58 balls. The next two games weren’t the best for him as he could only score 1 and a duck. However, in the semi-final, Akhil scored a crucial 69 but his efforts went in vain.
