On an important day for VPCCL league when pitch 1,2 and 3 saw the clashes between the top division 1 teams ELCCC captain won the toss and elected to bat first. The match took place on pitch which is famous for high scores because of small boundries all around.

In the absence of regular opener Shakeel, captain mohit promoted himself to come with boom boom Altaf but unfortunately got out cheaply on an excellent out swinger by Richard in 2nd over. Altaf opened the batting and like always started the innings with 3 boundries in a row of first over of match.

Again boom boom Altaf proved himself to be the best opener in the league by hitting another quickfire not out 50 making a tally of 6 fifties so far in the season.

Syed got out cheaply as well and after Altaf retired on 50 n/o debutant Ibrahim and Yasir (the ferrari) took the creaze and both scored unbeaten fifties. They both scores 51 each before retiring. Umar scored 6 runs before getting stumped out trying to score as many as possible in the last overs. Waheed scored 22 n/o on 7 balls to give finishing touches and unfortunate Iqbal stood at the creaze without facing a single ball seeing waheed hitting consective boundries in last over.

With 3 unbeaten fifties and waheed cameo ELCCC was able to put on a mammoth total of 213. Although cally's bowlers were very disciplined and only gave a total 6 extras in the whole innings but it was the deep and strong batting lineup of ELCCC which enabled them to continue hitting.
Cally did not have a great strat when they came to bat as their star batsman fazal got out on the second ball to an excellent catch taken by yasir on deep square leg boundary.

The ball was flying for a flat six but was not high enough to cross the bucket hands of Yasir. Wickets kept coming at regualr intervals and waheed in his second over took an excellent return catch on his follow through. Iqbal bowled 2 excellent overs but his 3 over was hammered by nad and when Altaf came as a first change bowler after his batting heroics he took 3 wickets in 2 overs and killed all cally's hopes.

Saj (31n/o) and khurran (41 n/o) did not give any further wickets away but they needed 75 runs in last over to win and Ibrahim finished the last over by giving only a few runs away.

A superb game played faily and enjoyed by both teams. Good luck to both teams for coming games.
