The second 35 over game was a low-scoring, attritional fight of temperaments as Challengers CC prevailed over Mavecrics CC by 3 wickets. The Mavecrics batting once again struggled to force the pace & wickets for each of the first 5 bowlers had the Mavs in deep trouble at 21/5. Samir Sharma (35) & Ishan Gambhir (23) then, put on a 73 run partnership to bring some respectability as the Mavecrics were bowled out for 127 in 33 overs. Low targets have a way of confusing the chasing side and Challengers CC quickly realized this as Keyur Moradia (a fantastic 5/29) had them in trouble at 41/5. Debutant, Chander Pandey (45), then, probably inspired by Chulbul Pandey, played a Dabangg knock and he along with Satinder Minhas (34) blitzed Challengers CC out of trouble and steered the team to a 3 wicket win with more than 15 overs left.
