Weekend roundup

May 26, 2011

Both San Diego teams faced defeat in their games the past Sunday.

SDCC2 v. Corinthians

SDCC2 won the toss on a gloomy day and elected to bowl first.

Corinthians – 278/5 in 45 overs – Theo 113*, Suraj 2 wickets; Vishal, Shayan and Sahil 1 wicket each
beat
SDCC2 – 212/9 in 45 overs – Badri 62 (72b, 10X4), Jitendra 44 (68b, 3X4)
by 66 runs.

Corinthians were 166/3 in 33 overs, but the SDCC2 bowlers lost the plot completely and conceded 112 in the last 12 overs. Theo played a brilliant innings but SDCC2 had their chances against him, but could not hold on to catches.

SDCC2 were 101/0 in 21 overs and failed to capitalize from the solid platform. Partnerships was the key to chase a big total, and SDCC2 batsmen failed to provide that.

Positive thing was that SDCC2 again batted out the 45 overs and this would help them in the upcoming games.

SDCC1 v. Hollywood-1

Hollywood-1 won the toss and decided to bat first. The Hollywood-1 batsmen survived the many lives offered by the San Diego fielders and with the help of a 100-run partnership for the 4th wicket and some rearguard action by the lower middle order batsmen, posted a decent total for SDCC1 to chase. Chasing at CSP has always been a daunting task for any team, but the SDCC1 batters began proceedings showing positive intent and blazed to a 50-run opening partnership. The middle order batsmen failed to capitalize on this start and build further partnerships. In the end, SDCC1 fell short of the target by 42 runs.

Scores summary:

Hollywood-1 264 all out in 44.3 overs (Nikhil I 75, Ananth K 70, Ankit P 27)

Bansi, Wayne, Ben and Pradeep – 2 wickets each

beat

SDCC-1 222 all out in 44.1 overs (Joseph 63, Wayne 33, Hari 22, Ben 21)
