Warriors vs Nova Match report – 40/40

Match Date: 5/31/2014

Ground: Galway Park

Warriors begin their 40 overs campaign at a ground where they had their only win in this season T20. Electing to field warriors put up a good bowling display with some good disciplined bowling from the opening bowlers. Warriors had a breakthrough in the 12th over with Sandeep Pothuraju getting a wicket. The wicket opened up the flood gates of wickets for NOVA as Mithun and Venkat ran through the opposition with their spin. Together both the spinners took 6 wickets as the opposition was not able to play spin. The game changed in dramatic way from 1 wicket before the break to 8 wickets falling at the second break. Venkat got rid of the 9th wicket with his loopy delivery and the final wicket fell to the pace of Murali giving an simple catch to short covers caught by a diving Sandeep. A special note has to be mentioned as Suresh N caught two awesome catches at long off of Mithun bowling. The first catch was a high hit which everyone thought will carry to fielder but it dipped as it came down and Suresh had to run fast to get a hold of it. The second catch was much tougher as the ball was not hit properly towards long off but suresh ran and took the ball just before it landed inches of ground.

The batting part of warriors began chasing an meagre 104 (which included around 30+ wide’s) with Y opening along with saurabh. Y taking the strike took an single to give the strike to saurabh. Saurabh blocked one ball and was bowled the next ball while tryin to hit across a straight ball. One down was Niaz who was bowled next ball. So in first over warriors lost 2 wickets for one run. Next in Srini who was looking in good nick as he placed a offside ball beautifully between and fielders and got 2 runs for that. Srini tried to hit a short of length ball through leg side and got a toe end of bat hit the ball resulting in an easy catch at short mid-on. Sandeep and Y continued the chase sensibly by taking singles whenever they had a bad ball. Sandeep perished while trying to defend the off spin(for righty) which beat his bat and tuk the off stump along with it. Venkat came to the crease and continued with singles. Y tried to hit a short bad ball down the leg and got a top edge to square leg. Harsha and Venkat continued to play cautiously as they begin to build a partnership. Harsha spanked a four and venkat hit a Six thru deep mid-wicket in the same over to get the first four and six of warrior’s innings. Harsha perished trying to play a soft nudge to leg side as the ball took an top edge. Next in Murali was plumb for the off spinner giving the momentum back to NOVA. Mithun walked in facing the hat trick ball and got away with an unusual bouncy delivery on a slow low pitch. Venkat was bowled by a quicker one from the off spinner who bowled it on off stump. Next in Suresh Neelapala tried to shake the bowler line length my moving across crease and managed to get a single and next ball a double but their strike bowler had other ideas as he bowled well outside off which anna tried to hit but got a tame edge to slip. The last wicket of Bhanu and Mithun had to hit around 36 runs from almost 22 overs. After their strike bowler finished his spell with a 5 wicket haul Bhanu managed to hit one of their spinners for a six and four over the covers which brought a lot of relief. Bhanu and Mithun continued to bat sensibly by taking singles and block the good balls. At this point warriors required close to 20 runs in around 16 overs. Bhanu hit a off side ball over the point fielder and ran for two but there was direct hit on the second run on which bhanu was run out ending the game for warriors.
