It was a match between two promising teams namely Ibadat Education & DCL Champs on 19th July 2017 at Delhi. Ibadat Education who won the toss elected to bat first with an aim of making a big total on the board.
Batting first proved to be a right decision as Ibadat Education managed to score a competitive total of 274/10 in 40 overs. Left-handed opener Saurav Nautiyal smashed a brilliant century scoring 109 off just 70balls which set the tone for Ibadat’s innings. The talented batsman smashed 7fours and as many as 6big sixes to counter attack the opposition and help his team post a very decent target of 274. The rest of the batsman also chipped in with 20’s & 30’s further boosting the score. Milan & Prateek were the pick of the bowlers taking 3/18 & 3/36 respectively.
Chasing 275 at almost 7runs per over is always difficult and DCL Champs though gave a tough fight but managed to score only 244/10 in 33.4 overs. The batting was really good and had they played till the end they could have won the game easily but they lost quick wickets in between helping Ibadat Education win by 30runs while Sourav was declared ‘man of the match’ for his brilliant hundred. Cricketgraph congratulates sourav and the whole team for their win & also wishes them luck for their future encounters.
