Match: Mmavericks Cricket Club (MCC) versus IIPM

Venue: CECG, Bangalore

Toss: MCC won the toss and elected to field.

MCC opted to field first after the game was reduced to 28-overs-per-side after a delayed start. With Chethan unavailable and Venu out with bad health, it was understandable that MCC invested on their batting in this game.

The thin bowling of MCC though would be shown-up straight away as Varun, taking over from Kranth as captain, took Suman for 17 runs in the first over. Poorn lines and wides continued to be the scourge of MCC bowling through the innings. Varun, though, was in his elements very early and punished some poor early bowling by MCC.

Though Guna accounted for Naveen in his first over, the usually tiday Guna was also seen rusty struggling to find a consistent length. Varun had been joined in by Aussain and the pair painted a picture of contrasting batting: Varun with his skip outside the crease to every ball with a high-winding back-lift to go after the bowling and Aussain with his measured balancing self at the crease looking to play each ball on its merits.

Aussain was masterful in engineering a big total for his team

Varun’s opening burst had ensured that IIPM capitalized on the field restrictions in the first 6 overs by raving to 55. With the field spread and only the left-arm spin of Vijay looking threatening the pair resorted to percentage cricket by hitting the holes in the outfield for singles and milked MCC’s bowling with ease.

Varun fell 5 short of his 50 when he tried to loft Yeshwanth out of the ground. He had provided a tremendous base for his team by then as his team was closing in on a hundred in just over 10 overs. His exit was followed by 5 minutes of chaotic batting by the new man Manju. He struggled to put bat to ball as Vijay had him in knotts with his subtle varions in loop and spin with his accurate left-arm spin. Soon, a diving Prasad at point had him and Aussain in panic with Manju being eventually run out.

Ravi joined Aussain in the middle and the pair put on a good show of very skillful batting in the middle overs. Ravi, with his driving, and Aussain with his great ability to manoeuvre deliveries into gaps with his hands. The pair was very aggressive between the wickets. The pair had little trouble against the medium-pace or the spin of Vijay and Sunil as the cut, pulled, swept and drove with great confidence and timing.

The pair put on 41 in a mere 31 balls before Ravi was out. Aussain then controlled the innings beautifully by stepping up the temp in the last third of his innings. Having played second fiddle to Varun first and then to Ravi, he then turned aggressor with some powerful strokes of his own. His energy never waned as he ran hard and put pressure on the infielders of MCC often extractiong overthrows from them. He would put pressure on the outfielders too with his speed between the wickets that would result in fumbles and extra runs.

Over 50 runs came in the back 6 overs as he and the wicket-keeper Govid plundered the MCC bowling. Govind was cheeky with his strokes while Aussain looked increasingly good as the innings progressed. That they managed to score 207 in the end was largely due to Aussain’s pacing of his innings.

Bhargav’s unbeaten 66 was the only bright spot on an otherwise miserable day for MCC

Chasing at close to 7 an over meant that MCC had to get to a good start. With their regular 30-overs opener, Venu out with a injury, the onus was on Guna to anchor the chase. Srikanth though had the better of Guna as he bounced him out.

Syed was adjudged LBW soon after and Naveen tried his best to steady the innings along with Bhargav. Kranthi and Srikanth though ensured that there would be no easy runs as MCC struggled to break free. The required-run rate went north of 10 with more than half the overs remaining and even with stroke-makers like Shankar and Prasad still to come, it was obvious that they had left the charge a little too late.

Bhargav, though, played a mature hand rotating the stike and going at run-a-ball for most part. But Naveen’s inability to find boundaries hurt their chances and with Shankar providing the much needed impetus on his arrival in the 15th over, it allowed Bhargav to break-free as he looked to take more chances.

The quick wickets of Shankar and Prasad back-to-back meant that there would be no miracles to expect and the last overs were played out with Varun trying out all his bowlers ahead of the next game and MCC played out the overs in trying to reduce the margin of defeat so as to not fall back a lot in the net run-rate.

For his brilliant batting and a catch and a wicket, Aussain was declared the Performer of the Match.

Match: AMD versus GE

Venue: CECG, Bangalore

Toss: GE won the toss and elected to field.

With the monsoons having set in, this probably is the best time of the year weather-wise to play cricket in Bangalore. As the tournament kicked-off under clear skies and balmy weather, Dheeraj won the toss and inserted AMD in.

Captain Dheeraj was in his elements straight away keeping the AMD openers, Kathik and Viswajeet, honest with his accurate left-arm swingers. However, Abhishek was wayward bowling from the other end. Abhishek, with his tremendous sprint to the wicket generated good pace but was too short and too wide to cause any discomfort to the batsmen. The aggressive Viswajeet was severe with cuts and pulls. Karthik joined in the fun too as both seemed to be putting in a fine exhibition of putting away short deliveries.

Manhattan_GE_vs_AMD_8thJune2013

Dheeraj replaced Abhishek with Babu and he was immediately cut away for two boundaries in his first over. As the bowlers struggled to find lines and lengths, AMD brought up their 50 in the 8th over without breaking into a sweat. If anything the running between the wickets was the only unimpressive bit and eventually it was one poor call too many that accounted for the wonderful opening partnership.

Mallikarjun's 1 for 21 brought GE back into the game after a poor start

Mallikarjun’s 1 for 21 brought GE back into the game after a poor start

The spin twins Mallikarjun and Arvind put the brakes on AMD scoring as they controlled the next 9 overs giving away only 37 runs with only 2 boundaries coming in this period. The lanky offie, Arvind, varied his trajectory well while the leggie Mallikarjun troubled the batsmen with the pace he managed off the wicket. He often had the batsman playing from the crease and often beat them with his sliders, one of which cleaned up AMD’s captain Prashanth.

Having managed to ride the rough waters, Vikas and Kiran were expected to launch in after the spinners gave way to the 6th and 7th bowlers of GE. However, Manish, coming in 6th change would have it all his way with his tidy medium-pace. He sliced through the under belly of AMD with the wickets of Vikas and Kiran in his first over and then accounted for Darshan in his second. AMD’s hopes were dented further when Arvind accounted for the big hitting Lohith. With almost 10 overs to go and already 7 down it looked unlikely that AMD would even bat out their allotted overs. They would eventually be bowled out for 143 in 26.1 overs.

“We were going at a good rate through the innings even when we kept losing wickets. Perhaps not utilizing the full quota of overs hurt us in the end. We should have capitalized better on the start we got and should have got to a 180 kind of score at least,” said Prashanth at the end of the game.

Partnerships_GE_vs_AMD_8thJune2013

Chasing 144 in 30 overs, AMD had to make early inroads into the GE batting to put them under pressure to perhaps cause a panic. More so with Rajnikanth opening the innings. His last innings at this ground against Accenture in a practice game produced the only hundred at this ground insofar.

Rajnikanth and Rajesh had shared a massive 150-plus opening stand two weeks ago at this ground. They seemed to be in no hurry and in no trouble as AMD bowlers struggles to keep them in check.

Rajnikanth, a very powerful player who likes to hit the ball in the air got his stride in with three boundaries off Ravi in the second over. Soon, his trademark pulls, cuts and lofted straight drives scorched the CECG turf. His partner Raja did the smart thing by putting Rajnikanth back in strike as often as he could.

Rajnikanth cuts en route to a 51-ball 67.

Everything AMD threw at Rajnikanth was met with disdain. Cuts, back cuts, pulls and drives embellished his belligerent innings as the 50 was raised in the 7th over. Soon Rajnikanth brought up his 50 with a lofted 6 over long-off. He had broken open the game and when he was eventually dismissed in the 11th over, the score was 87 with less than 60 needed in almost 20 overs.

AMD fought back well with quick wickets but the game had drifted away too far for them to claw back. Eventually GE won the game in the 21st over with 5 wickets.

“The spinners brought us back into the game after their top-order really looked good to take the game away,” said Dheeraj at the post-match ceremony. He also credited his openers for chasing the total down easily.

“I feel very comfortable going after the bowling from the first ball. That is my natural game,” said Rajnikanth at the end of the game. He added, “It is like my home ground now.” With three fifties and a hundred in 6 games at this ground and with the promise of more to come, his team will feel good about their chances.

Match: WIPRO versus ODW

Venue: CECG, Bangalore

Toss: WIPRO won the toss and elected to field.

Teams:

Top of the table coming into the last Sunday of the game took on bottom of the table. Wipro only needed to win the game to ensure that the title was theirs. ODW on the other hand needed a good game to end the campaign on a high.

Wipro won the toss and chose to field. They were coming off a semi-finals loss in another tournament earlier in the day and seemed determined and very keen not to slip this one through their grasp. With the game reduced to 17-overs a side, they opened with twin leg-spin attack of Bharath and Karthik.

Manhattan_WIPRO_vs_ODW

Swayam’s forgettable tournament with the bat ended with a 5-ball duck. Arvind’s intent seemed aggressive against the spinners, but the runs came in a trifle. The spinners had spun a web around the ODW batsmen and all they seemed to manage to do was find fielders or thin air repeatedly.

Arvind and Jyoti soon perished, but Melvin found an able ally in Srikant. They found momentum as wrist spinners gave way to finger spin of Sri Karthik and medium pace of Vikas Gowda and Aameer. A sluggish start was then overcome with a stroke-filled partnership that managed 55 runs in 33 balls to push the score beyond 100 that seemed unlikely only half an hour ago.

A target of 119 wasn’t much, but it was a tremendous comeback riding on the back of another 50 by Melvin. Wipro though, largely bowled and fielded well in restricting ODW to 118.

ODW’s debutant left-arm seamer Tejomay raised hopes by trapping Karthik in front with a full swinging delivery in just the second over. Mohit walked in at the fall of the first wicket and then set about flogging ODW’s bowling.

An aggressive right-hander who likes to sit on his back-foot, Mohit produced a series of delightful strokes all around the wicket. He managed to quickly get on to the back-foot pulling any short deliveries and with tremendous power. Equally impressive was his balance in waiting for the balls drifting on to his legs that he glanced with great touch repeatedly to the fine-leg boundary.

Ajay provided a steady hand at the other end ans Mohit went about dismantling the ODW attack. Everything that Swayam threw at Mohit didn’t seem remotely enough as he brought up his 50 in the blink of an eye.

Victory was inevitable and quickly so as it came in just 9 overs to bring great joy to the Wipro camp. While it was dejection and ruing of many narrow misses for ODW throughout their campaign, Wipro on the other hand produced their game where most chipped in some game or the other.

Their captain Sharath was relieved at the end. He said, “we are coming from a bitter loss in the semis this morning. This victory is a revenge of sorts after a poor show in the morning. The team has been brilliant in this tournament with bowlers sticking to their gameplan and fielders supporting them well. And batsmen have chipped in in all games. It has been a total team effort.”

Match: AMD versus ACT

Venue: CECG, Bangalore

Toss: AMD won the toss and elected to field.

Teams:

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.

Manhattan_AMD_vs_ACT

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.
