Click for Scorecard

The prolific pair of Gaurav Pathak & Rahul Pagad put on an 81 runs stand which formed the backbone of WPP India XI’s batting innings. Some frantic hitting in the last few overs ensured they reached a par score of 165 in their 20 overs. Manickavasagan & Jagan Krishnan were Challengers CC’s best bowlers for the day. Kishore struck with the early wicket of the dangerous Sunil Samtani which meant that Ranjan Shankar & Satinder Minhas had to consolidate, which they did well. But they needed to up the run rate as the asking rate had crept to more than 10 an over, and in the pursuit of quick runs, they lost wickets, three of which went to the man of the match, Gaurav Pathak. In the end, Challengers fell short by 26 runs with 3 wickets still in hand.
