ELCCC won the toss and elected to bat first. From the first over their openers showed the dynamite they had in them and boom boom altaf hit a six on the first ball of the match and scored 19 of first over. Shakeel (the shak attack) was in no different mood and with his classy pulls and drives he was scoring fluently from other end.

Unluckly shakeel was run out of a no ball but altaf kept hitting and in came syed. Altaf, syed and yasir all three of them scored 50s and took the score to 193. It might come as a surprize to others but yes ELCCC's 3 batsmen scored not out 50s agains ducks but I must mention one of their main player was missing. DD's came to bat with the clear situation in their mind that the only way to win this game was to start hitting from first ball but ELCCC's opening bowlers made it clear to them that they are a similar match as ELCCC's batsmen are.

Tight bowling kept DD's hitters not to get loose and ELCCC kept scoring rate always in control. With such a huge mountain of a total to chase every ball had to be it and the pressure of that took its toll. Star batsman of DD Sibet hussain got out cheaply and rest of others also couldn't make much impression apart from Zahid who scored unbeaten 50 and then came back and kept hitting but finally he was bowled out by ELCCC's leg spinner Iqbal "the mustaq ahmed - mussy".

Zahid who was hitting everyone was not able to understand iqbal's variation. After his n/o 50 syed showed his excellent form with ball and took 2 important wickets and held a difficult over head catch just inches inside long on boundary of yair's ball. Both teams played fairly and umpiring was umquestionable from both sides. Good luck to both teams for upcoming games.
