Match report Vs Hunters

We won toss and elected to bat on a super hot and toasty day. The sad part was that we were home and laying down the mat took quite a toll. The good news came later in winning the toss. Deepak G won the toss and we went to bat.
Since Saurabh was not ready, Srini opened with Suresh. The openers got us to the usual quick start with big hits. With the score at 30 runs in 2.2 overs, 2 Sixes and 14 runs later Suresh N was caught off an edge in the slips trying to pull a short pitched ball. Saurabh joined Srini and kept the score board busy. Srini was the next to go bowled by a delivery that moved a little and beat him. He made 17 runs with 3 fours and added 19 runs with Saurabh for the second wicket. Deepak K looked to score but was only able to get 2 runs before getting out leg before at 51. What followed was disaster with Nirun getting out for nought, caught at square leg. Deepak G came in at 51/4 and began the process of reconstructing the innings. He played confidently and with determination. Saurabh got out leg before after making 17 runs that included 3 fours. Deepak continued the good work with Venkat who got out bowled trying to go after the bowler. Venkat made 12 runs with 2 fours. Deepak G was playing solidly at one end while, Syed (1 Run, bowled) and newcomers Vinay (9 runs 1x4) gave him company. Vinay offered promise but was lured by the spinner and stumped. After 42 runs that included 6 hits to the fence , Deepak was out trying to score a quick single. He had helped the score reach a respectable 155 in the 31st over. Abhinav, the last man in joined Ravikanth and excited us with a good looking four. He too was lured out and was stumped in the 32nd over to end the innings. Ravikanth remained unbeaten on 1.

Looking at the hunters lying down exhausted, we realized how fortunate we were to win the toss. Things did not start out well for us, Srini and Venkat started things for us. But there were runs coming steadily through the edges, well placed drives, and the occasional loose balls that were racing to the boundary before we could stop them. Hunters started picking up the pace, perhaps seeing bad news on the horizon. Deepak K was brought in first change and before he could wrap up the over, wind came upon us like no tomorrow. White dust from the adjacent baseball field and red dust from the pitch was thrown up and we had to stop play. Soon after there was an unusual sight of a park rangers car in the middle advising us to clear the field due to a tornado advisory. We promptly complied and took shelter in the cars. Rain lashed out and Hunters scrambled to cover the pitch, despite the park rangers warning. With the help of Syed and Venkat they nailed the covers on the pitch. Meanwhile, the team celebrated the birthday of Anita Kundal, the other half of Deepak K, who was there to cheer us. In spite of the rain, we ended the day with cake and vada. With the match declared a wash out we split points.
Result - rained out
162/10 in 32 overs
Deepak G: 42, Deepak's all time best, very patient knock, Saurabh - 17, Srini - 17, Suresh -14
Hunters - 62/0 in 8.4 overs
