Result of the second semifinal at the Volcano T-20 Cup was pretty much how it was expected.
Independent Cricket Club easily trounced Marsons United and the final battle is set to be played between the two giants of the league stage. Independent Cricket Club won the toss, piled on 180 and then defended it like a champion team does. MU were never in the game, especially in the second inning.
The spirits of Marsons United were crushed in the first 9 overs of the inning when a ruthless Siby took them apart with an inning of 71 off just 43 balls. His 6 fours and 5 sixes, all came in the area between deep mid-wicket and long on, yet the United bowlers failed to figure out a way to stop him. By the time Sudeep managed to rattle his stumps, the scorecard had 91 runs on it, at over 10 runs per over.
