After an early wicket, the partnership of 51 runs between in-form Krishna Jayaram and when-in-need-form H(Rishi)kesh Joshi laid a good foundation for the team to build on and set a decent target of 154 runs. Middle-order partnership between Dhruv Yadav and Sai Prathap maintained the gradual flow, and runs kept coming in until Wasil Khan came to bat, and runs started to pour in. The star batsman scored 33 off 26 balls.
Spartans started the 2nd inning with three quick wickets, but today's Spartan of the match was the star bowler Manoj Thirupal. He worked diligently on his fitness regime these past few months to return to his best-ever form and crush the opponent's middle order. Manoj bowled 8 overs and took 5 wickets with an economy rate of just 2.75. Ijaz Babarkarkhel carried the rest of the weight by taking 3 wickets in 7.5 overs with an economy rate of 1.91.
Mr. Captain- Param is injured, but he traveled with the team to Bellevue and was cheering from the sideline. Mr. Vice Captain- Sai led the first game of 2023, and his battalion ensured the winning streak continued. Great show, Spartans, Congratulations!
