Popovich Panthers vs Trojan Tigers - 09/21/18
It was a clash of 2 teams coming in with a contrasting mindset – Popovich brimming with confidence after 2 back-to-back wins and Trojan Tigers looking for their first win in the tournament. TT won the toss and elected to field. With main players missing for the Sunday evening game, captain Sushil Premjanisent in Sri Vijay (31) and Sneh (28) to open the innings, which proved to be a master stroke as they added quickfire 40 runs in the powerplay. The change in the bowling brought the much-needed break through for TT with some great work behind the stumps by Jay Shah. After the dismissal of the openers there was not much resistance by PP batsman until Sushil added quick 24 off 11 balls to finish the inning at 120 in the stipulated 15 overs.
Pick of the bowler: Ravi 3-0-19-3
With 120 needed, Darshan R Prasad got off to a flying start and went to make 70 runs off 27 balls including 6 sixes and 6 fours. Niranjan (12) gave vital support on the other end by rotating the strike. With 80+ on board in 8 over, TT captain decided to retire Darshan to give middle over much needed match practice and they finished the proceeding with Shreyas contributing 21 off 12 balls.
Man of the match: Darshan for his 70 (27).
