The T-20 Champions League at the Haryana Cricket Academy produced one of the most entertaining games. The game between Warriors Cricket Club and Cricket Studs seemed one sided on paper but the reality was quite different.
Studs won the toss and elected to bowl first. A comprehensive bowling performance restricted the Warriors to 148 only. Warriors were bowled out with an over to spare. Opener Ramnek Singh started off well with 28 runs to his name meanwhile, the other side collapsed. It was the heroics of Kundu scoring 42 off 30 balls only which pushed the team to a fighting total. Stud’s bowling attack was led by Saurabh who took 3 wickets. He was supported by Sarojanand Jha and Abhishek Prasad who claimed 2 wickets each.
The target to chase down was 149, a below average yet competitive total.
The second innings was started off by opener Praagya Shukla who scored 22 off 24 balls. It seemed Shukla was the only batsman who got off as no other batsman was able to survive and chase it down. It was a catastrophic batting performance from the Studs as they were bundled up for only 77 in 16 overs by the Warriors. Robin Bhardwaj claimed 4 wickets in his 3 overs. He received a helping hand from Karamjeet Singh who took 2 wickets himself.
Even after scoring a modest 148 in 19 overs, the Warriors Cricket Club had a super comeback against the Cricket Studs to bowl them out for a mere 77 and winning the game by 71 runs.
