ITCC vs Predators KCL on August 29th 2010@Edogawa Match Report
Monday 15 August, 2011
Tigers on a winning streak
Tigers ended their KCL 2010 campaign with their second win in consecutive matches by beating Predators by 10 runs in a Group A match played at Koiwa.
Batting first, Tigers were off to a disastrous start loosing half their side for a meagre 43 runs. Then a fighting 47 run partnership from the in-form Abraham and their stand in captain Sakthikumar enabled the Tigers to reach a modest score of 108 all out in 34 overs
In reply, Predators started a bit better and were 25 for no loss at one stage. But once the dangerous Pramod Patel started bowling, wickets started to fall in a heap and Predators suddenly found themselves at 68/8 staring a certain defeat. Prasad and Gurdeep staged a mini recovery to take them closer but a brilliant catch by Babu T.S brought the curtains down for Predators and they were all out for 98 runs.
In the end, the Tigers were left rueing the 2 run loss against Nagoya which otherwise would have given them a fair chance of qualifying for the Semis.
Tigers - 108 all out in 34 overs(Abraham 24, Sakthi 20, Ravi 3/6, Prasad 3/14)
Predators - 98 all out in 29.5 overs (Prasad 22, Gurdeep 15, Pramod 4/12)
