After winning the toss & electing to bat first, Digital Broadcasting team came in with an intention of making a big target. Things took a roll as it somehow did not go according to their way as Digital Broadcasting Team managed only 125 runs in 20 overs. Though they lost only one wicket but it was because of the un-oppressive batting by the openers & some tight bowling which restricted the opposition to a low total.
Rehman Siddique who is a specialist opener for his side perfectly played the openers role to full sublimity. Their strategy was to play normal cricket & chase the score instead of playing reckless shots. The openers gave a very strong start where in skipper Pravin Singh(41 off 31 balls) was really playing well & smashing boundaries with ease. Rehman was giving more strike to his skipper till the time he was at the crease. It was after Pravin singh’s wicket, siddique decided to stay till the end & chase the target for his team. Rehman Siddique scored a sublime 48* off 56 balls which helped his side win the match by 8 wickets and 2.4 overs to spare. Rehman’s blemish-free knock included two sixes over the bowler’s head which were his personal favorites.
Right handed Siddique kept his calm till the end & was just two runs short of what could have been a well-deserved half century. Siddique’s efforts helped his side win the first match of the Milan T20 Tournament & they will certainly move ahead in the competition with poise & confidence.
Rehman Siddique who was adjudged ‘man of the match’ dedicated this innings to his team & wishes to continue his good form in the coming matches.
