In the limelight again was the one and only - Sir Sankar, who took 3 wickets, making him currently Player #1 in the Division. What a season, man!
Spartans bowled and fielded well, restricting opponents at their home ground on 148, a decent target to achieve given the current batting form.
Gaurava, the all-rounder, played a significant role in today's game. He bowled towards the end of the inning in the 30th over, taking 3 crucial wickets, and opened the batting, giving a solid start scoring 12 runs off 30 balls in partnership with Krishna, who batted to his true potential today, scoring 38 off 49 balls. What a start, Spartans! Later, Param, Mr. Captain (currently ranked #8), and Sai, Mr. Vice Captain (ranked #7), did the heavy lifting, scored amazingly, and ended the season in style. Way to lead!
Overall, a balanced team performance by the Spartans this season. They lost just one game, but the Spartans evolved, with every single game realizing their strengths and polishing their skills. Today's win has secured them a slot in the play-offs. More clarity on when, where, and with whom in the coming days.
The championship is just 2 games away. The club has come a long way since the disruption and uncertainty caused due to Covid. So let us wish our Spartans a well-deserved success in the semi-final (mid-August). Goooooo Spartans!
