It was a tough match at Oval maidan between two competitive teams namely Viacom 18 & Loreal. The pitch was neutral as Viacom18 won the toss & elected to bat first with an aim of putting Loral under pressure by posting a big total on the board.
It was a decent perfomance batting first as Viacom 18 managed to make 145/9 in 20 overs. Opener Amol Bankar was the leading scorer with a gutsy half century but the rest of the batsmen were not able to carry off the positive momentum left by Amol. Left-arm medium pacer Navneet was the pick of the bowlers with an amazing bowling spell of 4/27 in 4 overs. Navneet took crucial breakthroughs & was nicely supported by the other bowlers like Sandeep & Kundan who also 2 wickets each.
Chasing 146, team Loreal did it in most comfortable fashion as they won the match by 9wkts & 2.5overs to spare.
