Twenty20 Match Reports - Week 4 (6-7 May 2017)

T20 Match Report : CSCC-Stars v/s FCCC – Boltz – Saturday, May 6, 2017 : Reported by Rajesh Idate

"Never a dull game with FCCC" was CSCC-Stars player Abhay Natu's concluding remark after a low-scoring dogfight between these two teams. And how apt the remark was!

CSCC-Stars travelled to Boltz for a T-20 tussle with FCCC, won the toss and put FCCC to bat. CSCC has put together a quite strong bowling unit in the last couple years. Even though they missed key bowlers Hamayun and Narayan in this game, the strength was evident with the way FCCC batsmen tackled them throughout the innings. Opener and captain Omer was subdued by his standards as he watched the procession of other top order batsmen failing to apply. Abhay Natu was the pick of the bowler in the first session as he took out Santanu and Naveen. Chaithanya cleaned up Ravi Sajjan and Kervyn made Darshan to nick to the slips off the last ball before the drinks break when the scoreline read 53/4, with about 15 runs coming off wides or no-balls. After the drinks break, Omer broke the shackles and went after Chaithanya and Kervyn, and stitched a 26-run partnership with Rajesh. But Chaithanya had the last laugh when he deceived Omer with a well-disguised slower ball that was holed out to the cow corner where Abhay took a well-judged catch; 79/5. Rajesh and Tejas tried to stabilize but both fell to Avinash’s swing and pace in one over; 91/7. Abhay then took yet another catch, Amit falling to Rama; 93/8. Then Bhoopi hurt his shoulder with a hard fall to the ground, trying to avoid a runout; then got out to Avinash the very next ball; 95/9. Naman and Mike Riley then stitched a useful 11-run partnership that ended with Riley getting runout. FCCC folded for 106 in 18 overs. Even with the absence of Dipal, Faiq and Gopal in this game, the score was a reflection of poor application from the FCCC batsmen, barring Omer who played a captain’s knock while top-scoring with 43 runs. For CSCC, Avinash took 3 wickets for only 23 runs, and Abhay took 3 catches.

Target of 107 was hard to defend, but FCCC had confidence in their bowling line-up, having given LCC-Lions a tough time in their last match, again in a low-scoring thriller. Kervyn started the CSCC chase with a bang, depositing the first ball he received from Naveen beyond the long on fence; an IPL-style video coverage could have recorded the distance around 80 meters. Naveen hit back in the next over, getting Kervyn caught at the cow corner by Omer. What followed was an on-field animated discussion for about 10 minutes between the batsman, his captain and umpires. The caught verdict stayed and the game moved on. FCCC bowlers sniffed blood and applied relentless pressure that yielded wickets without many runs. Naman bowled exceptionally well, three overs on the trot and removed the other opener, Viswa; Darshan taking a fantastic diving catch behind the wicket. Naman then took a sensational catch at covers to dismiss Jayanth off Rajesh’s bowling; 13/3. Jayanth later commented that Naman, on the 20-yard circle, was actually looking at him in the batting crease when he caught the ball over his head; go figure! The pressure produced another wicket; Sandeep out by Amit; yet another catch for Darshan; 34/4 in the ninth over. Chaithanya scored a couple of delightful boundaries, but fell in Mike Riley’s first over which also accounted for Fahad; 42/6. What followed was a slow but determined crawl by captain Prasanna and the dangerman-for-FCCC Abhay. Omer, Mike and Rajesh tightened the screws with only 21 runs scored in the next 6 overs. CSCC looked out for the count when Prasanna fell to Mike’s leg-spin caught by keeper Darshan; 63/7, 16 overs. The target became 44 in 4 overs when Abhay changed gears and tonked a couple sixes to keep the chase alive. Naman sealed the game for FCCC in the 18th over when he beat the bat so many times with beautiful outswingers and gave only 3 runs. Rajesh finished the formalities in the final over and CSCC ended up 91/7; 15 runs short of the target. Abhay played the lone hand with 33 not-out. For FCCC, Mike Riley picked 3 wickets for only 12 runs, and Darshan took 4 catches behind the wicket.

Result: FCCC won by 15 runs
Man of the Match: Omer Rafiq for his all-round performance (43 runs in 44 balls, 3-0-11-0).
