On a bright Sunday morning Goutham started the innings with Jobin on a murderous note. Right from the first ball, the determination of going after Stallions’ bowlers was very evident with both openers belting the bowlers at both ends with boundaries.

The injured comeback opener Jobin looked to be in a hurry scoring 3 boundaries in the very first over of off-spinner Karthik. Karthik however eventually won the battle having Jobin drag one on to his stumps in his next over.

With the scoreboard just reading 24, after the fall of Jobin, Shoukath walked in at no.3. The pair immediately went about keeping the runrate and were involved in another good partnership – the first 50 came in just 5 overs. Both the batsmen never seemed to have any trouble facing Stallions and the boundaries flowed frequently and quite easily.manhattan_06Apr2013

The pair put on another 100-plus partnership. Goutham’s innings contained various flicks to the leg with the odd pull stroke inbetween. His leg-side heavy scoring was well complemented  by Shoukath’s off drives and chips to the outfield for many twos and threes. Goutham soon reached his 50, followed by the century partnership between the two and then Shoukath completing his 50 too – all these happened in less than 10 balls. This was the pair’s 4th 50+ partnership and 2nd 100+ partnership making them the most successful pair for the team as a partnership.

Soon after getting to his 50, Shoukath was undone by the visiting skipper Prasoon with a flighted leg break. The host skipper Kaustubh walked in calm and composed. It was only from his bat the dangerous vrooming sound of the new Wisden ball was heard. It was pleasant to watch the skipper playing some perfect cricketing strokes – especially the straight drive that was almost close to his idol’s favorite shot – the real master blaster Sachin!

Goutham disappointed CECC by failing to register the first century for the club when he fell 21 runs short trying to clear the legside boundary only to find the fielder at deep square leg. But quick runs from Kaustubh ensured CECC had set a whopping target of 230 for Stallions.

Goutham continued to fire with the ball too. Having 4 slips, he swung the ball out beautifully. The stallions had not much clue. The Stallions chase showed early promise with Rahul and then Prasoon looking confident playing some booming drives.

The CECC seamers kept bowling fuller length and got the ball to deck off the track. The seamers Shoukath, Goutham, Gauam and Jobin kept the ball up and inflicted dismissals behind the wicket. The cordon of Muthu, Jobin and Kaustubh coming up with sharp reflex catches behind the stumps. While Shoukath and Gaurav took sharp catches in the infield.

CECC rounded off a good win with Gautam bowling a sharp spell of seam-up and was unlucky not to pick up more than the one wicket he did to show for his spell. With Vicky picking up a wicket with his first ball on debut and two in his first over, the match was well sewn up.

This win brought up CECC’s 6th win a row. And the win by 91 runs brought up their second biggest win in terms of runs.
