Fez Rebels travelled to Purwakarta to take on the home team Indorama CC in the second 35 over game of the weekend. When Warwick Peters (53) & Corbon Loughnan (48) put on a 98 run partnership for the opening wicket, memories of their 225 run unbeaten partnership in the season opener last year, were revived. Ashish Khaitan (3/30) beat Corbon in the air to have him playing on & setting in motion, a very familiar Fez Rebels middle order collapse. The young Rohan Rajpal (4/3) then came on to make a mess of the tail and Fez Rebels folded up on 135, losing 10 wickets for just 37 runs.
In reply, Fez Rebels thought they had a chance, when Corbon Loughnan (2/19) & Steve Barber (1/33) took a few early wickets. But a calculated counter-attacking reply, first by the experienced R. Srikkanth (18) & later by man of the match, Abhishek Sharma (41), ensured that Indorama CC won comfortably with 5 wickets and more than 14 overs to spare & also enabled an early return back to Jakarta for Fez Rebels.
