On a chilly evening ELCCC's captain lost the toss and asked to bowl first. Syed and Ajmal made a solid bowling start and tied down Bengal Tiger's batsmen. Ajmal bowled a magnificient delivery and bowled out the opening batsman.

Maruf and Marcus took over bowling for second spell and maruf was a bit expensive in his first over but came back strong and took wicket in his second over. Marcus made sure the bowling was on line and length and free runs were not given.

Iqbal came in to bowl next and with excellent keeping by shakeel he quickly got 2 wickets and altaf gave the finishing touches and got the tailenders out. Only Rob of Bengal Tigers used his experience and stood firm against ELCCC's solid bowling.

Bengal Tiger's ended up with 72 runs and lost their last wicket on the last bowl of 14th over. Due to 6.30 start the game was reduced to 14 overs a side. ELCCC's openers boom boom Altaf and Shak attack (Shakeel) came with clear intentions of finishing the game in no time but Altaf lost his wicket very quickly and in came Mohit at no 3.

Mohit and Shak kept hitting the boundries in every over and scored over 10 runs per over. Thanks to a top quality catch from cox Mohit was out on 21 and soon Maruf followed him on 0. In came syed who scored 4 boundries in 8th over to finish the game quickly.

Shakeel came not out on 30. A wonderful game played in right spirits and both teams enjoyed it. Good luck to ELCCC and Bengal Tigers for the coming games.
