Sanjeeva with a steady bat scored 26 runs with 2×4 while Majuran opener was L.B.W. and was an unfortunate given out with no score. Ravi’s scored 16 runs with 2×4 and was appreciated by the team since he was missing out on the past four games. Sathees not out no runs, Mounir 8, Idrees 10, Zarook 1, and Arun 1, Wadood 21 2×6 and 1×4.
Wadood was on his best bowling average in the innings took 6 wickets in 8 overs for 33 runs. He was injured and didn’t play for the last four games and his come back was very important and appreciated by the team members.
Due to an incident, the game was interrupted for 15 minutes due to unfair decision made by the umpires favoring the opponent batsmen. Finlay the decision revoked and the game was resumed, peacefully.
Arun’s catch was the turning point of the game on long leg fielding position – excellent wicket keeping by Zarook held three catches behind the wickets.
In general, XI STARS and GESLCC always play fair cricket with good atmosphere. Hope to improve our long term friendships while working our any mishaps, if any.
Congratulation to the success of the team and Thanks to all those who participated to cheer!
