The top order of SPPL failed to put up a strong performance and at one stage they were 63 for 6.

Both of them got out at the score of 41 and eventually scored a total of 171 runs in 39.3 overs. For EM, Ganesh Gaikwad bowled a brilliant spell of 4 for 33 runs in 7 overs. Team EM had a good outing with the ball.
Chasing 172, EM were cruising at 64 for 2 but then a string of quick wickets ensured their difficulty in chasing down the target. Sai Rajapurkar (33 off 32) tried to revive the innings but in vain. In 30.1, EM was bundled out at a score of 149 runs. They competed well but failed to cross the threshold of win. Performer with the bat and then star with the ball, SPPL’s Ankit Jain dismantled the opposition with his left arm whirligigs on the pitch and picked up a fantastic six wicket haul for 28 runs. His all round performance stood out in this close encounter.
Result – SPPL won the match by 22 runs.
