Match: AMD versus ACT

Venue: CECG, Bangalore

Toss: AMD won the toss and elected to field.

Teams:

AMD

AMD

ACT

ACT

Consistency had been the bane for both these fine teams as they locked horns in the mid-day game of the last Sunday. Having witnessed MCC struggle batting first, Prashanth opted to field first after winning the toss.

Ajay and Vinay, opening for ACT hardly had any discomfort as Chethan bowled a poor first over with innumerable extras as 16 came off the first over. Ajay with a back foot punch to the cover boundary had already played the stroke of the day and with Vinay looking threatening as he has all though the tournament, trouble beckoned for AMD.

ACT found the boundaries easily as 57 came off the first 6 overs. An assortment of bowlers – slow and fast – were tried to no avail. Finally Prashanth turned to Anil and he had Ajay bowled off his first ball.

Vinay, though, went on his merry way at the other end tearing into AMD’s bowling. Much to AMD’s relief ACT were unable to keep up with Vinay at the other end as their bowlers managed to keep a check on one end. Deepak, Shankar, Thomas and Sharath all got out in an attempt to up the rate as Anil and Arun kept them in check.

Vinay, now well past his 50 was in punishing mood and Paddy provided the finishing touches as AMD powered to 135 in their allotted 18 overs. For AMD, it was a case of pulling things back after a poor start during the powerplay.

Rohit produced a delightful spell of attacking offspin that fetched him 4 for 20

Vinay’s unbeaten 71 took ACT to 145 in their 18 0vers

Viswajeet and Piyush started off brightly for AMD as the two short openers played handsome strokes against Paddy and Kalappa. The pair were particularly severe square on the off-side playing some very delightful square drives.

Sharath quickly turned to spin as more than 45 came off the first six overs and Thomas struck immediately having Viswajeet caught.

Vikast joined Piyush and the pair kept at the required rate with positive batting. And at half-way the game was evenly poised. The introduction of Rohit changed the equation quite dramatically. The wiry off-spinner has been a delightful performer tossing his off-breaks and inviting the batsmen to go after him. He puts enough revolutions on the ball to achieve a drop on the batsmen making them mishit often.

Here too he had AMD groping after his flighted off-breaks. His cunning is in deceit with dip more than turn and it accounted for several AMD batsmen who looked to swipe at his loopy off-breaks. He accounted for the dangerous Vijas and then the captain off successive deliveries. And he came back to completely break the back of AMD in his next over as he scalped the big hitting Kiran and Amit. In a span of 10 deliveries he had sewn up the match for his team.

In the end, it proved too difficult for AMD to recover from the blows of Rohit and they eventually folded up 15 runs short.
