Avengers- 3 for 3
Gurman hits out

Another cold day saw two matches on Sunday. The opening game was a top of the table clash between the two unbeaten teams, the Avengers and Newfoundland Super Kings.
NSK won the toss and chose to bowl first. Rahul Vashisht, hampered by an injured knee, made a brave 56 from 25 balls. Barely able to put weight on his right leg, he was forced to score in boundaries, hitting six fours and five sixes. When he was caught, Shami Khan (30) and Gurman Khurana built on this rapid start with a 64 run partnership. Gurman made 72 from 49 balls and for the second time this year fell on the last ball of the innings. The Avengers scored 187/5 from their 20 overs.
The Avengers bowled very well, running through a strong NSK batting line up, and bowling them out for 99. Arif top-scored with 19, and Adeel Ilyas made 18. Six Avengers bowlers shared the wickets, and keeper Daxj Mehta had four victims- three catches and a stumping. Gurman was named man of the match for his excellent innings.
The second match had the Royal Challengers taking on the BD Tigers and recording their first win in the Summer League. The BD Tigers batted first, making 115 all out in their twenty overs. The innings was finished by a hat-trick for Challengers captain Manvir Mann, who finished with 5/14. Abu Syed top-scored for the Tigers with 25, with Mohammed Zilani contributing 24. The Challengers reached their target in the 19th over, thanks to a man of the match performance by Kamal Gosal, 55 not out from 35 balls, featuring 7 fours and a six.
