Match report - Indcan I Vs Fraser Valley I @CFV Exhibition on May 15,2016 - By Ankit P.

Coming from a loss, we needed to get back into winning ways immediately. And the omens were good before the game began. Overcast and cool conditions, 'home territory' for Indcan. We lost the toss that we did not want to win and were asked to bowl first. We started with a wicket off the first ball of the game. We reduced them to 5 down in the first six overs, thanks to some great bowling by Deore. Then their more experienced players started to get a foothold and the runs were coming in thick and fast. By the end of 15 overs they were looking set and in for the long haul. After the drinks break, some tight bowling from Vikram and Nikhil put pressure on the batters to score and Nikhil broke the partnership. In that span of 15 overs till the next drinks break, they managed to score only 20 runs. In the third session of play the pressure to score was evident, thanks to some brilliant bowling, as they folded out for 85.

While we had a stable start to our batting, we lost Sudipta and Sanjay before either of them could get a foothold. But Nikhil and John played a level headed innings scoring majority of the required runs before Nikhil got out. John was our highest scorer with 40 not out and Nikhil scored 26. 

Indcan Man of the match: Ganesh Deore for taking 4 wickets.
