Premier League - Match Reports - Week 5 (14-15 July 2012)
CSCC Vs CCCC: Premier game, July 14, 2012 - Reported by Kervyn Dimney(CSCC)
CCCC won the toss and put CSCC to bat. While CSCC did not have a good start, Narayan(56) and Rohit Shah(21) put up a good performance and rescued CSCC's batting with the score reading as 79 for 2. The other CSCC batsman struggled against the CCCC bowlers that were constantly taking wickets, and CSCC ended up with 125 on the board. Sandeep was the pick of the CCCC bowlers with 4 wickets, and Siddhartha Datta with 3 wickets.
With 126 as the target, it didn't seem as a uphill task for the CCCC batting line up. Instead of looking to defend a small score, CSCC bowlers attacked from the first over and kept up the pressure on CCCC batters throughout the innings, forcing them to make mistakes. That was the only way they could have defended such a small target against a solid batting lineup as CCCC's. Proving the old adage that 'Attack is the best defence', CSCC cleaned up CCCC in 80 runs. The only resistance came from Ashish Singhal with his 15 runs. Asim Khan was the pick of the CSCC bowlers with 4 wickets, while Rajnikanth Sharma and Kervyn Dimney picked up 2 each.
For his steady half-century (his maiden one), and a tight bowling spell of 4-3-5-1, Narayan Madabusi was declared the Man of the Match.
