Match Report: Himalayan vs Star @ Clarksburg, Jul 18

Result - Star won by 58 runs
Highlights: Suresh Y all round performance (29 runs & 4 wkts), Lali - 39, Venkat - 3 wkts, Nirun - 19

On an important note, any team playing at this ground on a hot day, make sure to take a tent that can fit most of the players. The ground is pretty flat with literally no shade.

Star won the toss and elected to bat first. Star started of good and made use of the short boundaries & a fast out field. Deepak G and Venkat bowled a tight spell to contain runs. The first 10 overs went for 54 runs. Himalayan leaked more in the second session. Suresh Y playing his last game of the 40/40 games produced his all time best, 4 wkts. He almost got his 5 wkt in his last over but couldn't hold on to a tough caught & bowl chance. End of the innings, star scored 221 all out. Himalayan did a great job in getting star all out for 221 on a ground that had more runs in it.

Suresh N and Suresh Y started himalayan's innings. Second over of the inning Suresh N got runout trying to go for a quick single. Suresh Y stuck to one end as we lost few quick wkts at the other end. Lali came in at third down and built a partnership with Suresh Y. Both steadied the innings. Trying to up the run rate suresh Y got out. Nirun joined Lali in the center. Nirun produced his best 19, striking the ball with ease. Lali got out to a good catch an deep covers. This was a big wicket. We were 10 runs apart from the number of balls required but we kept loosing wkts regularly. Deepak G and Venkat played some aggressive cricket taking us closer to the target but Venkat got out in a mix up and there comes the end.. Last wicket didn't last long. Batting was a let down in the game.
