Himalayan-vs-Omnitech at Jefferson May 15

After our first win of the season against Bengals2, we were confident for a good outing. The original venue Mikegordon was not ready for playing condition and the game was shifted to Jefferson. The pitch was still moist due to the rain from Friday evenings' rain and thunderstroms.

After winning the toss, we put Omnitech in to make use of the mositure in the pitch. Srini and Deepak K gave a brilliant start to the innings keeping the Omnitech run rate to just little over 1.5 rpo. The Omnitech openers looked all at sea against against some immaculate line and length from our opening bowlers and Deepak really let the ball zip. Aashay was collecting most of the deliveries almost at his chest level. Deepak K got the first break through. Syed came on as the first change and got two quick wickets to peg Omnitech back. After the end of 15 overs Omnitech were at about 35 runs for loss of 3 wickets. Our bowlers kept the pressure up and Deepak H and Suresh N bowled a very tight line and length and consistently kpet on picking up wickets. Suresh was exceptional in his performance with picking up 4 wickets and giving away only 24 runs in 8 overs. Omnitech were finally bowled out for 113 in 28.2 overs. Kudos to Aashay for doing an excellent job behind the stumps. He did not let a single ball go past him.

After a great bowling effort; we were confident of chasing this small total and Suresh N gave us a rollicking start by playing some aggressive shots. He stroke four 6's and two 4's towards an entertaining innings of 45. Suresh N and Suresh Y had a strong partnership while chasing down the total till Omnitech came back strongly with 4 quick wickets. We were scoring at a decent pace but with some good bowling and little complamency on our part saw loss of 2 more wickets. Deepak H played a solid qucik fire knock of 23 striking two 6's and one 4. We finally chased down the target in 27.3 overs with Syed and Amit at the crease.

Like our every match this one too had some memorable moments. The "ROOKIE" umpire was so nervous that he missed a clear run out by atleast 3 feet from a direct throw by Deepak H (even the batsman knew he was a gonner) and a LBW decision against Deepak K, when the ball hit him on his thigh at his full stance. Amit tumbling and rolling before completing the victory run and Deepak hitting some huge sixes using Suresh Ns' bat ( so for me Suresh scored a 50 ). But the highlight was a six over cover point by Suresh N. He simply was in terrific form and turned in a great match winning performance. I am positive that the thunderstorm on Friday evening and the fish curry he ate the night before (I have this info from a trusted source !!!) had a big role in Suresh N's performance on match day. I offically (with the support of our team) will address him as "Anna" from now on :).

Great team effort and a good win. Go Team !!!!!
