Twenty20 League - Match Reports - Week 10 (8-9 Sep 2012)
FRCC-B v CCCC, 9th September 2012 @ Longmont , Reported by Murali krishna (CSCC)
The game got off to a delayed start owing to the wet outfield. CCCC won the toss and decided to bowl. CCCC picked up some early wickets to leave FRCC-B at 7/2. However, Misbah and Tej played beautifully to build a 100-run partnership. Misbah was especially brilliant and played some exquisite strokes on both sides of the wicket. Tej too chipped in with some big hits down the ground. The partnership was ended when Tej got out to a good catch by Bhupi at long-off. Misbah looked all set to reach triple figures but got bowled when he tried a cheeky shot. Vivek Madhavan, who was sent up the order to provide some momentum decided to go for his shots. Inspite of wickets falling at the other end, Vivek played wonderfully along with some support from Abhijit Kaul and took FRCC-B to a very competetive total. Suresh Nulu from CCCC bowled very well for his 3 wickets.
CCCC got off to a blazing start thanks to Sandeep's stupendous sixes. With him around, CCCC seemed to be on-course to chase down the competitive total. The FRCC-B slow bowlers tied him down and he was finally bowled by a superb delivery from Vivek. Vivek continued his brilliant spell and picked up 3 more wickets. CCCC fought hard to reach 144 with some good hits from Venu and Avinash who played very sensibly. FRCC-B won by 37 runs.
Vivek was declared MoM for his 34 runs and 4 wickets.

LCC would like to thank UNM for graciously hosting us, including setting up the pitch early to allow some practice time to get used to the flicx wicket. After experiencing the long drive, LCC's players definitely developed a great appreciation for the UNM team's dedication to the game and long-time participation in CCL. The two teams also played a friendly T20 in the afternoon to make the most of the visit.
