FCCC @ YCC: T20 game, June 10, 2017 – Longmont : Reported by Naman Parashar (FCCC)
YCC elected to field after winning the toss. FCCC’s start wasn’t smooth with Santanu walking back in first over itself. Naveen was part of two excellent partnerships with Omar and later Darshan. With Naveen and Darshan in the middle, FCCC was always in a steady position and ended on 206, thanks to half-centuries from both.
206 was always a challenging total, and losing wickets at regular intervals didn’t help YCC’s cause. They were never really in the game, except for some resistance from Prasad, Naveen and Thushara. Naveen show good temperament in staying not-out, but wasn’t supported well by his middle order. YCC finished on 116/7 in 20 overs.
Man of the Match: Naveen KP for his brilliant 71 from 52.

T20 DCC v FRCC, Jun 11, 2017 at Cornerstone. Reported by: Poorvaj Venkatraman, FRCC
FRCC travelled to Cornerstone Park for this week’s T20. The wicket was very different at the first look. The surface looked spongy with evident scruff marks. Rohit was very unsure with his decision to bat or field first. The DCC camp also proclaimed this to be their first match at the ground. Harpreet won the toss and chose to bat first thinking that a big total would put pressure on FRCC.
FRCC’s bowling has really clicked over the past few weeks and this week was no less wherein, FRCC saw one of the brilliant bowling displays having bowled out the opponent for just 23 on the score board. Rohit and Srisailesh Chari started the bowling and it was surprising that the captain did not need another bowler to feature in the scorecard. Infact, one would actually wonder if FRCC fielded 11 players for this frenzied game.Coming to the bowling, Rohit picked Vikas in the first over and the opener had no clue to beautiful delivery from Rohit and edged one to the keeper. This started the downfall of DCC.
Chari, bowling from the other end was on a different planet that day. He ended the game with 7/10 to his name - an incredible achievement ( best bowling figures of FRCC ). This one actually surpassed the best bowling figures for an FRCC player registered just a week before by Subhashish’s 6/6. Chari was on a hatrick twice in the game. First when he dismissed Sanket and Sameer - a catch in midoff and a bowled in the 2nd over of the innings. He was again on a hatrick when he dismissed Aniket and Ashwani in the 4th over of the innings - both occasions uprooting the stumps. Rohit then removed the DCC keeper to a very good delivery swinging in and Deepak had no answer to it. Chari came back and took two more. He registered his first five-wicket haul in this 3rd over of his spell. Umang and Arvind both succumbed as LBW victims to Chari. Rohit came back and took Raghav’s wicket trapping him with a leg-before.
Harpreet was the lone batsman trying to save the innings. Harpreet at this point had no option but to go after every ball. He smacked Chari for a six. His figures would have read 7/4 if not for that. Nontheless, Harpreet played a shot too many and Rohit caught the skier to end DCC’s innings. DCC finished with 23/10 in 7.4 overs. Chari’s figures 3.4-0-10-7 and Rohit’s figures 4-0-13-3 was the bowling for FRCC and Harpreet was the only batsman to enter double figures with 12(16).
FRCC came in to bat with a very aggressive intent and the innings lasted only 11 balls. Sumeet smacked the first ball for a six over extra cover. Sumeet continued to try and hit everything out of the park but found the fielder at deep Mid-wicket while trying to play one and got out to the spinner Raghav. Afshin came in at 3. Smacked a 4 and a 6 in only two balls and finished the game for FRCC. The whole game lasted less than 10 overs. Sumeet 17(5) and Afshin 10(2) in the batting. Raghav took 1/21 in 0.5 overs.
Man of the match was undoubtedly Srisailesh Chari for his 7/10 in a T20 game.
Man of the Match: Srisailesh Chari for his unbelievable spell of 7 wickets for 10 runs.
