It was a nail biter which went all the way to the last over with CCCC trumping SPCC by 6 runs. CCCC was put into bat by SPCC’s skipper Rupesh on wet ground and were stumbling off the blocks. They lost their opener early on and would have been really struggling if SPCC did not miss a couple opportunity in the field. CCCC batsmen made the most of the lives that they got and accelerated through the powerplay overs with Kathik scoring at brisk pace and hitting the SPCC bowlers out of the park at will. SPCC also had an unlucky injury with their speedster Miten injuring his knee in follow-through and could not finish his first over and then did not ball at all. Rupesh came on to bowl and stemmed the flow of runs and from one end but the other end kept leaking boundaries and eventually CCCC posted a total that was always going to be challenging. When SPCC came out to bat, it almost looked like as if they were playing on a completely different field. The ball did not travel at all and SPCC had to work hard at singles and doubles to keep their score moving along. Rupesh fell for 12 and Mayank followed soon which put pressure on the batting lineup. Rohan and Vihang came together and they not only had to prevent any further damage but also score at a decent clip to make sure there is not a lot to be done in the death overs. Vihang was the next to fall in trying to push for quick runs and Miten Patel, who was injured during bowling, was sent to increase the run rate. Rohan then fell against the run of play and that brought Neeraj to the crease. The two power hitters were expected to take the game away from CCCC but both fell in quick succession after hitting some delightful shots. Shirshant, Hiren, Harsha and Ramki swung their bats and were able to get an odd boundary and steal doubles and it came down to Harsha and Ramki to score 13 of the last over. The bowler made mistakes and Harsha was able to sneak the odd boundary but in the end SPCC fell short by 6 runs.
