An excellent batting performance saw the Bengal Tigers kick-off their cup run with a victory on a scorching hot Monday evening. The Tigers won the toss and decided to bat.

Shiva and Arj opened up and got off to a good start albeit with plenty of chances in the offing (many catches would be missed by both teams). Arj went cheaply but Shiva continued to hit out and ended up with his first fifty of the season (and about time that he converted one of his many starts).

Runs continued to flow with good contributions from Guarav and Avinash. Thomson Reuters lost an early one, but then put on 79 for the 2nd wicket, with Kiddle in playing some nice shots and Bruce getting his eye in after a troubled start.

However the Tigers finally took a couple of catches and Thomson Reuters wickets started to fall. The stand in captain brought himself on for the 2nd to last over to test the dodgy shoulder he'd been whining about for the past few weeks.

However, the violins were quickly silenced as some sharp keeping and deadly offspin (you owe me for writing that) saw 2 stumpings which brought the game to a close.

Thanks to Thomson Reuters for a game played in good spirits. And a hat tip to the weather, the gound staff for cutting the grass, Heavy for looking after the gear, Barry's shoulder, and those that couldn't make it due to funerals and family illness (partnership dinners don't count for a hat-tip RB).
