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.
