Bowling highlights: Rajesh Munshi (4ov, 22runs, 4wkts)
Man of the match: Srini Santhanam from MSCC Slashers
• Arun TJ played the first ball of the 2012 season, scored the first run of the season, the first boundary of the season, and was the first wicket of the season.
• Naveen Kumar blasted the United Punjabis attack to the tune of a 28-ball 50. Srini Santhanam bettered this with a 22-ball 50. Aravindh and Aseem provided steady support before Nishant hit 13 off 5 balls in the last over.
• Slashers finished with 194, but United Punjabis had their moments in the field with 2 brilliant catches by Varinder Singh and a couple of stumpings.
• United Punjabis replied confidently against wayward bowling and poor catching from Slashers. But the asking rate was near-impossible.
• Rajesh Munshi took 4 quick middle-order wickets to swiftly end any hopes the chasing team might have had.
• Srini Santhanam was declared man-of-the-match for his 68 and two catches (one of which was an excellent running catch from the boundary line)

MSCC Slashers: 62 for 5 in 11 overs
Bowling highlights: Milind (4ovr, 1md, 17runs, 2wkt)
Man of the match: Rajesh Munshi and Srini Santhanam from MSCC Slashers
• Puneet Soti and Srini Santhanam began with an near-unplayable spell of opening bowling, removing the top 3 Sounders batsmen for 23 runs in 8 overs, all neatly caught-behind by Deepak Rajendran.
• Imran Rafiq hit a couple of sixes but top-edged a pull and was caught brilliantly by Aravind Krishnan. The rest of the batting went into survival mode, and barely played out 20 overs for a paltry 61. Ilyas held the bottom order together well and hit a couple of big shots. Rajesh Munshi was once again the chief destroyer with 3 wickets, to make it 7 for the weekend.
• Slashers took the chase easy with an experimental batting order. Omer and Nishant opened, played and missed a few times, and connected mightily a few other times. There was a minor collapse but Slashers were never in danger, and cantered home with 5 wickets and 9 overs to spare.
• Rajesh Munshi for his 3 wickets and Srini Santhanam for his 2 wickets and 2 catches were declared joint man-of-the-match.
