Yes we do agree by the fact that high scoring matches are interesting to watch as they include a lot of hitting & a high sense of adrenaline. But sometimes low scoring matches are also equally interesting when both the teams are losing wickets & holds our nerves till the end. One such low scoring match was between team CEX & Godrej Industries at Shivaji Park Gymkhana in Mumbai.
Winning the toss, CEX elected to bat first with an aim of making a big score. However, the pitch was tricky & was supporting the bowlers well. Eventually CEX managed to score not more than 104 with the loss of 8wkts in 20 overs. Yogesh & Satish were the pick of the bowlers with bowling figures of 2/17 & 2/11 respectively. No.4 batsman Zulkarnain was the only batsman who looked good for his 36 which helped his team cross the 100 run mark.
Chasing 104, everyone thought it would be a cakewalk for the Godrej batsman but howewer there was a change in the script & it actually turned out to be an entertaining low scoring match. Godrej were al-out for 101runs in 20 overs & Team CEX won a thrilling encounter by a mere margin of 3runs. Right-arm off spinner Nikhil Tanna bowled one of the most economical spells of the tournament as he gave only 7runs in 4overs along with 2wkts. It was a collectively good bowling perfomance with Nikhil leading from the front.
CEX won the match by 3 runs & Nikhil Tanna was adjudged ‘man of the match’. Cricketgraph congratulates Nikhil & the whole team for their commendable win & wishes them to continue their good form.
