Rockers are Champions; Circle at Sunset shatters dreams

Rockers are the 2008 Tennisball Cricket Champions.

In a nail biting weekend of twists and turns, Circle at Sunset won both their games against aspiring teams to hand over the championship to Rockers.

Rockers had an incredible start to the 10 rounds tournament and were 8-0 at one point. But they lost their final 2 games to end with a 8-2 record. That opened the door to two teams that were hot in pursuit. Before this weekend's games, Challengers were 7-2 and Gladiators were 6-2. Warriors had completed their engagements with a 7-3 record and were settled for 4th place. Or were they?

Gladiators took the risk to persuade Circle at Sunset to play them where earlier Circle at Sunset had decide to forfeit their game. Gladiators were betting that with 2 huge wins from their last 2 games they could end in a 3 way tie on points (8-2) and head-to-head (1-1) and then take the top spot by means of a superior runrate.

Challengers were hoping that Gladiators would lose where upon a win would put them tied with Rockers on points and head-to-head tie breaker would make them champions as they had beaten Rockers a couple of weeks back.

Rockers were sitting a home hoping that in a three way tie their superior runrate would make them champions.

None of the teams were expecting what happened.

Cricle at Sunset had won only 2 games in the tournament and were not expected to put up any challenge. But the rain gods had their own ideas. CCL's T20 knockout games were washed out and that gave Amit Bahri an opportunity to suit up for Circle at Sunset.

In the first game of the day, Gladiators made light work of Prime Contenders to stay with the plan. But things went horribly wrong in the afternoon. The weather deteriorated and Amit Bahri went on a rampage. When all was said and done, Gladiators had suffered a heavy defeat that left them wondering why they had not taken the walkover. Just like the stock market, they had crashed out of the medal reckoning and Warriors had jumped ahead.

Circle at Sunset were not done yet. The next day they faced a pumped up Challengers. With Gladiators out of the picture, all Challengers needed was a win. But again Amit was the stumbling block. Final score: Circle at Sunset 93, Challengers 92. A single run loss had shattered Challengers challenge. A single run loss gave Rockers the Championship and dropped Challengers into third place.

Can you believe it?

Rockers - Champions
