Delhi Warriors (Salim Ansari) team opting to bat first at Khera Khalan, New Delhi were not able to post a huge total getting all out for 130/10 in 35.2 overs. Most of the batsman struggled and it was quite evident from the fact that the highest individual score in their line-up was 24 runs. From the bowlers, Aryan Poddar with 3/14 and Varun Dabas with 2/10 were the pick of the lot.

Chasing 131, Ravi Brothers XI were off to a equally shaky start with scoreboard reading 80/7 and 93/8 at one stage. However, Chandan Mishra at no.6 played a crucial cameo of 50 runs in 54 balls rescuing his team from a narrow defeat.

Ravi Brothers XI crossed the victory line in 33.0 overs with just one wicket in hand while Aftab (4/27) and Deepanshu (2/23) from Delhi Warriors gave a tough fight with the ball. It was a close shave win for Ravi Brothers XI while Chandan Mishra was declared ‘man of the match”
