Menara CC, put into bat by PHM Jaguar CC in their T20 game, started briskly with Harish   pinging the fence a few times. The introduction of leg spinners Rehan Ghaffer (2/20) & Amit Lala (2/20) at both ends led to Menara losing regular wickets as they slumped to 61 for 7 in 12 overs. A gritty 31 run 8th wicket partnership between Ishaq (22) and Amit (15*) saw Menara make a recovery. Jagdeep Singh (4/13) returned to rattle the timber 3 times in 3 balls to ensure Menara CC finished at the low score of 98 all out. Menara CC did put up a good fight while bowling & made Jaguar CC sweat hard for their win. Harish Tiwari (1/12) & Faheem Butt (2/16) kept chipping away, but Aman Singh (43no) kept one end safe to guide his team to a 5 wicket win achieved in the 17th over. “Overjoyed to get a hat-trick & that too with all 3 wickets being bowled-out” said Jagdeep Singh.

Thanks to Anuj (Mavecrics CC) & Diwakar (GMIS CC) for umpiring the game.
