Warriors CC kept losing wickets at regular intervals with scoreboard reading 32/3 and 72/5 in 12 overs despite a solid 30 by their skipper Rohit Shirgaonkar. However, the middle order and lower middle order ensured to bring their team back into the game with Vaishnav Sail at no.5 guiding the chase with a quick 32 ball 40. Quick cameos by wicket-keeper Rahul (14 off 10), Satyam Chaudhary (19* off 18) and Viren (16* off 5) further ensured Warriors CC crossed the victory line in the 19th over with 4 wkts to spare.
