ITCC vs Quest team - Friendly match result - 14APRIL2013
14th of April, 2013 witnessed fantastic and breathtaking efforts from our team to win a friendly match against Quest team.
Let me congratulate the tigers for the same.
We won the toss and elected to Bat first. One of those windy days and the quest team opening bowlers bowled beautifully.
Though our top order collapsed with not a great total on the board, it was Chetak who started the stoke play with two pulls towards deep square leg for boundaries.
Some good running between the wickets helped us steal few runs.
And at the end, it was Pauly and Kaustab show. They sent some balls the boundary to make a superb come back and the final total on the board was 124 runs.
Ragesh and other bowlers started of very well with the bowl and the first 7 overs conceded only 17 runs. Pauly bowled with furious power and speed as usual. The situation stood with 8 overs remaining and opposition requiring 49 runs (run a ball). Two run outs dented the opposition with their main batsmen already in back to pavillion. Then Bala came back with a strong spell and bowled a maiden.
Chetak, who had a very gud day bowled a superb over and hit two of his balls on to the stumps. Then situation jumped on to 7 runs required of last over with one wicket remaining. It was chetak who again shined and knocked of the stumps.
ITCC won the match with 7 runs. A real good performance by the bowlers.
Congratulations to the captain and the whole team for opening the season with a win. Let's take forward the positives with us in future matches and improve on the negatives.
