Kilo Game overcome Deevas Queens

After winning the toss, Deevas Queens confidently chose to bat, but that confidence was not reflective on their top order batters as the top three got out in single digit.

However, Shalini had other ideas when she came out to bat, unhappy with the position the team was in, she decided to hit some lusty blows and dig the team out of the hole. Scoring 32 off 22 balls (3 boundaries and 2 sixes), she was the stand-out performer with the bat for the Queens.

They amassed 67 runs for the loss of 3 in their 10 overs. Argentina and Jema from Kilo game claimed a wicket apiece.

On the other hand, Kilo Game started their chase with a blast from the get go.

Their opener Pauldina partnering with Argentina, smashed 29 off 18 balls and 21 of 16 balls respectively. The chase was achieved in 8.1 overs with 11 balls to spare, giving Kilo Game an emphatic victory.

The woman-of-the-match award was given to Argentina ‘Tina’ Gappy for her all-round effort with the bat and for claiming the ….caught and bowled.


SCA Men’s’ T10 League

A Manish all-round show puts GSP 7s on top over PRG

After having won the toss, GSP elected to field first, a decision that could have backfired had the PRG openers carried on from the solid start that their openers gave them, with 27 runs from Manoharan and 20 from Purushothaman, the stage was set for a big finish, unfortunately the remainder of the PRG batters could not capitalise and they all came and went with single digit scores.

This was mainly credited to the breakthrough spell bowled by Manish who claimed two scalps in quick succession. PRG finished with their allotted 10 overs with 56 on the board after the loss of 5 wickets. Manish took 2 wickets from his 2 overs for 14 runs, Kalvin and Sanjay each claimed one wicket apiece.

In reply, GSP struggled initially, losing wickets at regular intervals, with the top four batters only managing scores in single digits.

However, Manish had other ideas and decided to make the game his own, scoring 17 from 18 balls proved to be the highest score in their innings and a score that would give the match to GSP 7. They successfully chased the total down in 9.2 overs.

Special mention goes out to valiant effort from Nagaraj of PRG for his 4 scalps from the 2 overs bowled albeit in a losing cause.  For his all-round performance Manish claimed the man-of-the-match award.


Vijay Premier League – Division 2 


PRG Kings reign over Spartan Warriors


This was a rather low-scoring affair with Spartan, the first team to bat, only managing 33 runs in 11.4 overs.

Choosing to bowl first proved to be a great decision and PRG could not have asked for an easier match. Barring Jasim (12 runs), none of the Spartan batsmen managed to cross double digits. Vijay and Sasi of PRG took 3 wickets each, while Kamal claimed 2 and Nagarajan 1.

The chasing team needed as little as 4.3 overs to chase this rather meagre total, however they lost 3 wickets in the process. With extras being their highest scorer (11 runs) and Selva (9 runs) and Purushothaman (7 runs), PRG managed to get home rather comfortably. Subash of Spartans claimed 2 wickets.

With figures of 3 wickets from 4 overs and only conceding 12 runs, Vijay ran away with the man-of-the-match award

In the other match played in the division, Deevas Kings beat Lakstars A by 16 runs.

Choosing to bat first, Deevas Kings lost both openers cheaply. With contributions from Deepak (10 runs), Mohan (28runs) and Subbu (25 runs) they managed to reach a total of 102 in their 20 overs.

Nimal took 4 wickets from his allotted 4, giving away 15 runs. Janath took 3 from 3 conceding 14 runs and Rajitha took 2 for 9 in 2 overs.

Chasing this total, Lakstars rather made a meal of it, as all the top order batsmen, barring Nilan (25 runs) failed to fire and as a result they fell short by 16 runs chasing 102 runs. Apart from Nilan, Lithira (13 runs) and Shanmugam (10 runs) were the only noteworthy batters. Subbu finished with figures of 3 wickets from 4 overs conceding 10 runs and Deepak took 2 wickets from his 4 overs conceding 16 runs, which also included a maiden over.

For his valuable contribution with the bat and excellent bowling, Subbu of Deevas Kings was awarded the man-of-the-match title.


Amazon Betting Cup – Division 1  


Gran Kaz Kings defeat Luckstars


Winning the toss, Gran Kaz opted to field first, a decision which seemed to bear fruits straight away as opener Suranga and the number one batsman, Kavinda, of the Lakstars team were dismissed in quick succession.

However, fellow opener Thiwanka (29 runs) and Amal (60 runs) steadied the ship and managed to put on a healthy partnership. With the fall of their wickets the remaining Lakstars batsmen could not really put on a decent showing against the Gran Kaz bowling attack and ended up with a total of 125 for 10 in their 20 overs.

Rohit and Bhavesh each took 2 wickets apiece and Neel and Rajeev contributed with 1 each.

In reply, Gran Kaz had somewhat of the perfect chase, with their openers each making valuable contribution, Tim (40 runs not out) and Islam (27 runs). And to top things up their number two batsman, Rohit contributed with a match winning 39 runs.

Easy win for Gran Kaz who managed to chase the total down in 18.5 overs for the loss of only 2 wickets. For his all-round effort with both bat and ball, the man-of-the-match award was given to Rohit.


Captain Lalji sees Vijay Warriors over the Narayan


Narayan chose to bat first after winning the toss, a decision that did not quite work in their favour as they could only manage to amass 93 runs in 19.5 overs before being bowled out. The only noteworthy contribution with the bat was from Govind (27 runs) and Rupesh (22 runs). Vijay bowlers did a good job restricting the opposition to a below par score.

Rocket, Krishna and Murji each claimed 2 wickets and captain Lalji claimed 1.

Chasing this total, Vijay had a pretty decent start with both openers hanging around until Krishna got out after scoring 12 runs. Vijay would go on to lose another 3 wickets before their captain, Lalji (25 runs) and Rocket (11 runs) decided to play sensible cricket and see their team over the line.

The total was achieved in 14.3 overs with the loss of 4 wickets.

For his 25 runs not out and single wicket, captain Lalji was awarded the man-of-the-match trophy.
