The Stage was set for the Grand Finale of the Corporate Cricket Tournament with Ugam reaching the Finals followed by Pothy’s Cricket Club.
The match was telecasted LIVE on a local TV channel (TV One) and the ground was also filled with supporters from both sides. Pothy’s initially won the Toss and decided to bowl first. An error maybe from their Team to have underestimated our Hard Hitting Batsmen as we piled up 113 runs at the loss of 6 wickets in 10 overs.
With a huge total and required Run Rate of a little over 11 runs an over, the going wasn’t easy for Pothy’s. As they lost wickets at regular intervals and with the run rate climbing up, they were running out of options. Our bowlers stuck to their task by constantly putting pressure on the opposition. Towards the end, Pothy’s needed 33 off the last 2 overs. Anthony bowled a magnificent spell giving away just 2 runs and taking a wicket of Pothy’s leading run scorer. Venkatesh finally drilled the last nail in the coffin by bowling a maiden over and taking us to a Grand Victory by a comfortable margin of 31 runs.
With that we have become the Champions of the Corporate Cricket Tournament. Many Congratulations to every player in the squad, the support staff and all those who’ve played a key role in this Victory. The Trophy presentation will take place sometime this week and we will definitely keep you posted. Well done Team…You have made us proud!
