Air India after being put to bat first at DY Patil University 1 Ground posted a very decent total of 176/9 in 20 overs which is most of the times defendable. Openers Rudra Dhanday and Naman Ojha proved a good combination with a right blend of youth and experience as both the players stitched a 132 run opening stand in mere 86 balls. Rudra scored 60 off 41 while Naman Ojha scored 68 off 47 balls to set up the stage for Air India. Despite such a brilliant opening start, Air India team could not capitalize as they lost 8 wkts in the last 30-35 balls with just 44 runs added post the wickets of their openers.
Canara Bank in reply could only manage a total of 141/9 in 20 overs with most of the players finding it difficult to convert their starts.
