Premier/Twenty20 Match Reports - Week 4 (27-28 Apr 2019)

DDCC @ LCC-Lions: Twenty20, April 28, 2019, 2pm, Cornerstone Park, Littleton - Reported by Dharam Patel(LCC-Lions)

It was a windy day at Cornerstone Park, where LCC-Lions hosted DDCC for an afternoon fixture. The coin landed in favor of the home team and knowing that DDCC has a strong batting attack, the LCC-Lions captain decided to put runs on the board first and decided to bat.

LCC-Lions opened with their now very expected openers, Dhiren and Dharam Patel. The pair started cautiously, trying to judge the wind and play accordingly to give their team the best start possible and one over was all that was needed to adjust to the conditions. Dharam was the first to go on the attack. He dispatched the first ball of the over with a beautiful shot over the cover boundary for six and he didn’t stop there. He continued the onslaught. Dispatching balls at will, he was on full attack mode and skipped all the other gears. He gave one chance in the 4th over and DDCC paid for it as Dharam went on to make 75 runs off just 30 balls. He was flicking, driving, and lofting shots all around the park. Dhiren was a mere spectator during the power play, rotating strike to give Dharam the opportunity to blast away. Dharam made his first half-century of the 2019 season off just 18 deliveries, bringing it up with a one handed six pull over long leg. Dhiren also gave a chance very early in his innings and DDCC would have to pay higher for his dropped chance. Jay joined Dhiren after Dharam’s departure and he too continued with the big-hitting smashing 26 runs off 13 balls. It wasn’t until after the drinks break that Dhiren took charge. Bodha scored 17 runs off 6 balls, but Dhiren decided to turn it up. He was taking advantage of the bad balls and dispatched good balls too. The shot of the day was a quicker delivery from Sirangu, which Dhiren latched onto quickly and hit a bullet over point for six. The ball’s maximum height was 12 ft and traveled with some big time pace. At the end, Dhiren completed his first century of the 2019 season in the 20th over and the LCC-Lions finished with a massive 248 on the board.

The biggest highlight of the bowling was that the 12th man Umesh caught all three wickets, and 2 of those were in some difficult windy conditions. Akhil, Surender, and Sirangu were the bowlers to pick up wickets.

In response, DDCC started off poorly, losing their Captain, Naresh on the first ball edged to first slip. It got worse when their other opener, Kranti, edged Manoj on the first ball of the second over to the same spot. Both openers were gone and the LCC-Lions were in control of this one. Satheesh was sent out to eat up deliveries, but with a large target, he needed to open up and was out for 4 runs off 11 balls. Sirangu was nervous at the beginning and was dropped twice but he took advantage of it and reached his half-century quickly. Sirangu and Varun, had a good partnership going but after the drinks break Raj and Shailesh found their rhythm and got them out in quick succession. First Raj got Varun (24 off 17 balls) bowled in the 11th over and Shailesh got Sirangu edging to the keeper in the very next over. Sirangu played very well for his 73 runs off 41 balls. Rakesh and Surender had a good partnership but couldn’t give DDCC the boost needed to tackle the large total set by the LCC-Lions and DDCC played out their 20 overs with 1 wicket remaining and lost the match by 90 runs.

LCC-Lions pick bowler was Manoj Acharya with figures of 4-0-27-2. Jay, Shailesh, and Amar got 1 wicket each and Raj and Bodha got 2 wickets each.

Man of the Match: Dhiren Patel for his amazing 101 off 58 balls which included 7x4s and 6x6s.

CCCC-Green @ CCB: T20 - 9am Sunday April 28, 2011 at Green Valley Ranch, Denver CO - Reported by Preetham Naik(CCB)

CCCC-Green won the toss and elected to bat. They started well with Abhishek and Ravi at the crease. Satyam started CCB’s bowling attack with a maiden over. Ravi looked shaky to start with facing 5 balls and was caught out for Abhishek Sama’s brilliant over with no runs in his kitty. Mehul stepped in at 1 down but could not deliver much with the bat and CCCC-Green was in trouble at this point losing 2 wickets for just 4 runs at the end of 4th over. Mantha and Abhishek stayed strong and stabilized the innings with a 33 run partnership and brought CCCC-Green’s batting back to control. CCB at this point was struggling with their extras and giving away easy runs. But Bhaskar’s spell with 3 wickets and Abhishek’s Sama with 3 wickets restricted CCCC-Green to 116/10 in 19.4 overs on the scoreboard. Abhishek Vijapurapu was the best batsman for CCCC-Green scoring 36 runs well supported by Chidambara with 17 runs.

CCB started their chase with Prasant and Preetham. Prasant started positively with 2 boundaries in the 1st over, but Preetham played a poor shot which was very well judged and caught by Abhishek Jha with a brilliant catch. Harsha hit supported Prasant by scoring quick boundaries. But Vamsikrishnaraju restricted this partnership by picking 2 wickets in the same over landing CCB in trouble with 3 wickets down. Satyam with his broken finger decided to step in and contribute with his bat and showcased a true cricketing enthusiasm by not letting his injury bother and anchored the role of middle-order batting strengthening CCB’s chase. Satyam’s innings brought the game back to CCB’s court and his spectacular performance of 43 runs in just 32 balls helped CCB bag their win by 3 wickets. The pick of the bowler from CCCC-Green were Vamsikrishnaraju and Rajesh with 2 wickets each. CCB won this game by 3 wickets in 16.4 overs and Statyam was rightly adjudged the man of the match for his all-round performance.

Man of the Match: Satyam Singh for his superb effort with both bat (43 of 32 balls) and ball (4-1-24-1) and ignoring the fact that he was in pain with a broken finger.

FCCC @ YCC: T20 – 2pm Sunday April 28th 2019 at Lower Garden Acres, Longmont - Reported by Sagar Chandra(FCCC)

FCCC won the toss and under extremely windy conditions decided to bat first. Darshan and Tejas got off to a super-fast and perfect start scoring 76 in 7.3 overs with Darshan hitting exquisite shots all around the park. Tejas looked good in the other end as well before Darshan perished at mid-wicket having scored a quick fire 45 off 28 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes. Sagar came in and knocked the ball around before he got out trying to up the ante scoring 24 off 24 balls with 2 fours. Tejas was the next to go scoring 43 off 38 balls with a single four and 4 sixes. Rajesh Idate came in and took the score to 192 hitting 5 huge sixes and disappearing 3 balls in to the creek in the process. He scored a 16 ball 42.

YCC never looked threatening with great bowling again by Amit Thakar, Venkatesh, and Naveen. Only Sudhir looked solid scoring 38 off 36 balls while Shanti, in the end, scored a quick 20 ball 29 with 3 fours and a six. Supreeth bowled impressively taking 2 wickets. YCC could only manage 132 chasing with Darshan giving chances to most of the side in bowling.

Man of the Match: Rajesh Idate for scoring 42 off 16 balls with 5 massive sixes.

LCC-T @ RCC: T20 – 10am Sunday Apr 28, 2019 at Cornerstone Park, Littleton - Reported by Abhijit Das(RCC)

The day started with the temperature hovering at and around 60 degrees and went on to be extremely windy as the game went on. RCC won the toss and elected to bat first. Sreeni and Vikesh started off the innings from RCC. Both the young medium pacers from LCC, Shlok and Sohil were able to use the conditions to get some decent swing going. Vikesh, after hitting couple of boundaries missed the line of the ball from Sohil to be bowled for 10 runs. Sreeni was batting well while rotating the strike and hitting boundaries in between. Satish also perished soon going for a big shot. Abhijit and Sreeni steadied the innings for RCC by rotating the strike. Damion came in after Sreeni's departure of a useful knock of 19(20). Damion and Abhijit got stuck in a partnership for RCC with quick running and hitting regular boundaries. Damion was destructive at times and was able to exploit the loose deliveries from the LCC-T bowlers. Abhijit departed at the 19th over after scoring 45(36). Damion helped to close out RCC's innings strongly by taking 18 runs in the last 5 balls from Imran Choudhry, RCC ended their innings by scoring 170 for 4 in 20 overs.

FRCC-S @ CSCC-Stripes: Twenty20 - 2pm Sunday April 28, 2019 at Memorial Park RoseBowl, Colorado Springs - Reported by Sanket Sharma(FRCC-S)

FRCC-Spartans were travelling to Colorado Springs for their third T20 match of the season against CSCC-Stripes. FRCC-S won the toss and had no hesitation to bat first. Giving match practice to most of the batsmen was their strategy going into the match. So they started with Abhinav and Girish as a new opening pair. Both were looking solid and were taking easy singles before Abhinav got run out after trying to take a second triple run of consecutive balls. In came the captain who was looking positive from ball one. He hit couple of good shots before getting bowled to an in-swinging yorker by opposite captain Viswa. Girish after scoring some runs in last match was looking confident and started middling balls after initial overs. He scored a very good 41(28 balls 2 Fours, 2 Sixes).

With two new batsmen at the crease the score read 68-3 at 8.1 overs. Subhashish Dash decided to counter-attack and started attacking all bowlers. He hit consecutive 3 sixes before going into the break at score of 94-3 by the end of 10 overs. Just after the break – Sridhar got stumped to Nitya Maddodi. But this had no effect on Subhashish. He scored freely all around the ground. He scored 27 runs of 12th over getting the momentum back to FRCC’s innings and getting to his fifty in just 17 balls. Sumeet was at his usual best scoring freely and hitting boundaries at will. He made 32(16 balls 3 Fours, 1 Six) before getting caught at point to Vivek by a slower ball by Sarath. By then FRCC-S were at very strong position at 182-5 at 16.2 overs.

Sanket got a no-ball first ball and took advantage of the free-hit by hitting a six which got him going. He scored 34(11 balls 2 Fours 3 Sixes). The star of the batting was Subhashish Dash. He was hitting sixes for fun and brought up his first CCL century in just 36 balls, that’s a record for the fastest century for FRCC. Even after getting his hundred – he showed more hunger to score runs and ended up not out at 128(42 balls 5 Fours 14 Sixes). His innings saw FRCC-S scoring a mountain of 270-5 at end of 20 overs. On the bowling side, Viswa was the pick of the bowlers as he took 2 wickets by giving 38 runs in his 4 overs.

In reply, CSCC-Stripes did not start well. They lost Mohanprabhu Jayaram to a beautiful outswing bowled by Shiril. Manohar and Alagarsamy stitched a small partnership of 29 runs before Manohar got stumped to leggie Anuj Marathe. He got Nitya lbw next delivery to peg them back at 33-3 at end of 7 overs. None of the next coming batmen kept going except Vamsi. He was the lone star in CSCC-Stripes’ batting. He was undone by Rohit’s Yorker which ended his score at 45(38 balls 4 Fours 3 Sixes). CSCC-Stripes ended up with 108-8 at end of 20 overs.

Man of the Match: Subhashish Dash for his power hitting and record breaking century off 36 balls ending up with 128(42) which included 5 fours and 14 sixes.

MCC @ FRCC-K: Twenty20 - 10am Sunday April 28, 2019 at Lower Garden Acres, Longmont - Reported by Poorvaj Venkatraman(FRCC-K)

Pleasant sunday morning to play the second game of the season, FRCC-Knights were ready to take on MCC in their home ground after their narrowest of a loss. MCC, having won the toss, elected to bat first.
Manohar, the home captain began the proceedings with Rajesh and Sudeep. Saketh went guns blazing scoring 20 in the first two overs, making full use of the powerplay. Rajesh came back strong in his second over to pick Saketh - He bowled a short ball on the body and the opener miscued the pull - keeper settles safely underneath and pouches the ball. Rajesh picked one more in the same over when Arun tried to counterattack, only to find the fielder at mid-off. Sudeep picked a wicket of the last ball of the fourth over to further make things worse for MCC. Bad shot selection and inability to rotate strike didn’t help with their cause either. MCC went nowhere after that because of some brilliant captaincy from Manohar. He managed the bowlers well and juggled them around to keep choking the MCC players. Vaibhav was introduced and he answered the captain’s call straight away trapping Lucky Singh in his first over. Things were a bit dull until Aagam Shah was introduced in the 8th over. Aagam, being high on confidence from his previous game carried on his good form bowling tight lines and giving nothing underneath the bat. This troubled the MCC batsman quite a bit. He took 2 wickets over the course of his quota of 4 overs. Srijeet wasn’t far away from the action either. He bowled good lines and choked the batsman adding a couple of wickets to his name. The was a flurry of hits from Kumaresan Pandian at the end when he smacked Srijeet for a couple of sixers and a boundary but one would think it was a bit too late to ask, as wickets just kept falling at the other end and also the fact that he came in a little too late to bat didn’t work in MCC’s favour. Bowlers shared the accolades as each of the five bowlers picked 2 wickets each. Saketh made 17(14) failing to convert the start. Varun made a slow 19(30) trying to revive the innings and Kumaresan made 25(13) in the end. Rajesh picked 2-21 but the pick of the bowlers was Aagam with 2-13 in his 4ov.

FRCC-Knights didn’t have a good start to the chase losing Vivek Madhavan in the second ball to a short ball caught at long-on, unable to time the pull. Rajesh joined Gandhar and stitched a good partnership. Gandhar played a steady 16(19) scoring good shots along the ground and got out trying to accelerate. Rajesh played the anchor role with Gandhar and took the dominating role once he got out. Good all round shots over long-on, long-off, extra cover, point showed how good a player he is and the calbre he has to play those versatile innings. Sudarshan came in and supported Rajesh before hitting a huge maximum towards cow corner. He then realized that his buddy Rajesh was nearing his 50 and mellowed down his instincts so as to allow Rajesh to complete the formalities. In the end, FRCC-Knights chased down the paltry target of 99 in just over 13 overs to get the first win of the 2019 season under their belt. Gandhar made 16(19) and Sudarshan made 12(16). Pick of the batsman was Rajeshkumar Jha for his well made 50(46) with 2 fours and 4 sixes.

Man of the Match: RajeshKumar Jha for his all-round performance with the ball {3-0-21-2} and bat 50(46) {2 fours and 4 sixes}.

LCC-Panthers @ CSCC-Stars: T20 – 2pm Sunday April 28, 2019 at Criterium, Colorado Springs - Reported by Narayan Madabusi(CSCC-Stars)

CSCC-Stars hosted LCC-Panthers on a windy but sunny day. CSCC would like to take this opportunity to welcome LCC-Panthers to the Colorado Cricket League and wish them luck for upcoming games as well as future seasons.

LCC-Panthers won the toss and elected to bowl. Santosh and Kervyn opened for CSCC-Stars while Tom Ryan started for LCC-Panthers. Santosh was in an aggressive mood and started off the match with a six. Kervyn did not let the bowlers settle as well. CSCC-Stars were going about 10 an over for the first 4 overs when Santosh was adjudged LBW. Chandran walked in and played a good supporting role to Kervyn’s onslaught. They put a 49-run partnership when Kervyn (47) was caught at covers trying to accelerate even more. He missed out on a well deserved 50. Chandran (21) and Vikas (15) got out trying to up the scoring. LCC-Panthers came back strong after the initial onslaught and were looking to control and keep the CSCC-Stars’ score down to around 130. Vaibhav produced an excellent double wicket maiden over. But Udaya (29*) unleased some hefty blows to take the total to 156. Vaibhav was pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets.

LCC-Panthers started their innings with Tom and Raj at the center. Prasanna started the proceedings for CSCC-Stars. Prasanna was right on target and gave just 1 run.
