Match report - Indcan II Vs Newton Surrey IV @Douglas May 1, 2016 - By Omkar S.
Lost the toss again and were asked to field on a hot sunny day. Aniket started with a wicket in his first over and bowling beautifully throughout his spell. We had to fight for our wickets and dropped catches didn't help our cause. They managed to score 147 in the end which was 20 runs short due to excellent death bowling and fielding.
We didn't start well losing 2 wickets early on. Anant and Ganesh stabilized the innings by putting down the anchor. Middle order failed to contribute and at that point, we were 70 for 7 and almost run a ball required. Kuntal and Karthik J played an excellent inning to keep our hopes up. Sanjay M and Jai's cameo in the end almost gave us a victory. Unfortunately with 3 runs required to win in last 2 balls, we lost our final wicket thus losing another close match by just 2 runs this time.
It was a team effort which really got us very close in the game with excellent batting from our lower order. Win was tantalizingly close and yet so very far.
Man of the Match - Ganesh D.
