Another win for the Tigers on a very hot and humid evening.
With the mercury pushing towards the mid thirties Victoria Lounge won the
toss and elected to bat. A fine start by the batting side saw VL reach 73
without loss at the halfway mark.
But there was no panic by the Tigers and the retirement of opener, James,
who was starting to hit boundaries with ease (30 off 2 overs at one point)
changed the complexion of the game.
The Tigers bowling attack started bowling the correct length and strangled
the scoring. With only 47 being scored off the last 8 overs, VL's score of
120 was looking possibly 20 runs short.
VL got off to a great start with the ball and Woodoo took 3 wickets off his
first 2 overs.This left the Tigers on 25 for 3 off four overs.
However, the Tigers had their strongest batting line up of the season
and David and Arj put on 70 for the 4th wicket.
David was eventually out off a great caught and bowled, but with less than
20 needed Gaurav came to the crease and quickly scored the required runs.
Thanks to VL for a good game.
