Saturday saw a top of the table clash between the Avengers and Eagles. This turned out to be an excellent match, with the Avengers coming out on top with a hard -earned 14 run win.
The Eagles won the toss and put the Avengers in. Rahul Vashishtha got off to his usual fast start, making 31 from 10 balls before he was yorked by Messam Timmar. Messam dismissed Rahul Roy next ball and when he took his third wicket, Avengers were 55/3. Gurman Khurana (33) and Madhu Bandara (15) put on 52. Gurman was caught by Asim and next ball Saravana was run out by a stunning direct hit by Waqas Ali (who also took two catches), with only one stump to aim at. Zohair Syed mopped up the tail, taking 4/13 with some well controlled flighted leg spin, and Avengers were all out for 146.
The Avengers opening bowlers, Shami Khan and Madhu Bandara gave nothing away, and the Eagles scoring rate was restricted to under 4/ over. With half their overs gone, the Eagles had 44 on the board and were facing more accurate bowling from Praveen Manhas and Rahul Vashishtha. Messam Timmar made 35, and then Raheel Zaman hit well for 37. The Eagles managed to stay in the game, although the required run rate was always high, and needed 22 from the final over. When Raheel was caught on the boundary, they fell 14 runs short. Saravana took 3/27, and Madhu bowled his 4 overs for 14 runs- and was named man of the match.
