Ramesh and Paramesh Memorial Trophy, Chennai, India
Lucky Guys: 49/4 in 8 overs
Ramesh XI: 29/8 in 8 overs
Lucky Guys Won by 20 runs
Man of the match: Rahman 15 runs (1x6), 2 Wickets
Thanks to an all-round performance by Rahman, Lucky guys are through to the Second Round of the popular Ramesh & Paramesh Memorial Trophy in Chennai, India.
After winning the toss and choosing to bat first, Lucky Guys had a shaky start, losing Gowthan very early in the first over, and their losing wickets at regular intervals meant that they could score only 49 in 8 overs. With Inba 14 (14) rotating the strike very well, Rahman 15 (9 balls, 1x6) came to the team's rescue by hitting a towering six over mid-wicket. Balaji of Ramesh XI bowled at his miserly-best, giving away only 10 runs in his 2 overs and picking up a wicket.
Ramesh XI started very cautiously as they saw the first over off well with 6 runs without losing any wicket, but in their second over scored only 2 runs and lost a wicket too. Ramesh XI innings did not have any boundaries showed how tightly Lucky Guys have bowled and fielded, giving away only 3 in extras whereas Ramesh XI gave away 9 in extras. It was too much to ask of the batsmen as they lost 5 wickets between overs 4 and 7.
Rahman was adjudged man of the match for his all-round performance.
