It was a tight yet low scoring match between ICICI securities & Trafigura Global at the Air India Sports Club, Kalina at Santa Cruz. Trafigura Global won the toss & elected to bat first & put ICICI under the pressure of chasing a big score on the board.
However, things did not go in their favor as much as they would have expected because Trafigura Global got all-out for just 130/10 in 19.3 overs which is not the biggest of scores in T20 games. B Richardson was the only player who looked confident & aggressive against the ICICI bowlers as he scored a 19ball 34 which included 3 sixes. The bowlers did an excellent job of restricting the batsman & not allowing them to open their hands while also taking wickets at regular intervals. Opening fast bowlers Kuldeep (3/16) & Niraj (3/18) were the pick of the bowlers taking 6 wkts & giving away only 34 runs in their 8 overs collectively which played a huge role in restricting them to 130. Arjun also took 2 wickets though he was on the expensive side as he gave 37runs in 4 overs.
Chasing 131, ICICI securities played till the end with just 3 balls to spare but eventually won the match comfortably by 7wkts. Openers Chetan & Javeed Siddiqui had almost finished the game single handedly. Chetan scored a 32ball 41 while right-handed Javeed scored a match-winning 49ball 51 to steer his team to a victory.
ICICI securities won the match & opener Javeed was declared ‘man of the match’ for his half century. Cricketgraph congratulates Javeed & the whole team and wishes them all the luck for their upcoming matches too.
