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
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
