All-rounder Saikat helps DRS win while Dixit’s 52* for Game Swingers ends in a losing cause in the Cricket Adda Cup 2017

Played at the Cricket Adda Sports Ground at Gurgaon, Haryana, two promising teams namely Game Swingers and DRS clashed against each other where in Delhi Royal Strikers won the toss & elected to bat first in order to put the opposition under pressure.

Batting first, it wasn’t the best of the starts with the top 3 batsman falling out cheaply but it was Saikat at no.4 & Praveen at no.5 who chipped in with quick 30’s to steer their team out of trouble. Saikat scored a 25ball 33 while Praveen chipped in with a 26ball 33. From the bowling side, Chetan was the pick of the bowlers as he took 4/26 in his 4 overs followed by 3/22 by Sitesh.

In reply, DRS did a good job with the ball as they restricted Game Swingers to 146/5 in 20 overs falling just 3runs short of a victory. Top-order batsman Dixit scored a fighting 53ball 52*(4fours, 2sixes) but lacked support from the other end apart from Deepan’s 28* off 11balls who fought hard in the end overs to help his team win. All-rounder Saikat contributed with the ball too as he picked up 3/19 in 4 overs with one maiden. It was a nail biting and a close match between both the teams fought hard while Saikat was adjudged ‘man of the match’. Cricketgraph congratulates Saikat while wishes both the teams luck for their upcoming matches.
