Redmond Colts cruise past Stallions with an easy victory!
Another day of atrocious conditions to play cricket in. Another day of awesome spirit shown by all 22 players to play in such conditions.
Redmond Colts won the toss and decided to bat. Bharat gave a nice start with excellent support from Vinay and Ashish. Colts were 72 for 3 in 10 overs. That gave an excellent platform for Nirav, Sukhan and Ravi to go for their shots. Despite some disciplined bowling by Stallions, Colts finished with 179 for 4, with more than 100 runs being scored in the last 10 overs. Key contributions from Bharat 44, Nirav 44 n.o., Sukhan 31 and Ravi 29 n.o.
Faced with a daunting total to chase, Redmond Stallions started with some wild slashes, however they needed a lot of extras given by Colts bowlers to keep their score ticking. Wickets fell at regular intervals with batsman either playing all around straight balls or getting themselves run out by trying to take risky singles. There was some excellent bowling by Anil (2 for 10) and Ravi (3 for 16) in the middle overs. Only two Stallions batsmen reached double figures and extras were the top scorer. The game ended with Stallions getting all out for 84 in 15 overs.
Ravi Prativadi was Man of the Match for some excellent hitting at the end of the Colts innings and taking 3 wickets while bowling.
