Emerio Dragons chose to bat first against Ceylon Cavaliers in the first game on Sunday and they needed their star player Maneesh Dubey (31 of just 19 balls) to really step on the accelerator after Govind Sodani (36 of 45 balls) had given them a solid platform. Emerio ended their innings on a sub-par 128/5 in their 20 overs. Faheem (1/19) & Mufasil (1/22) were the main bowlers for Ceylon. Maneesh, then returned to shine with the ball as well and his 2/10 along with a fabulous 3/7 by Jegan and a tight 2/9 by Vinayak Kurtkoti, ensured that Ceylon Cavaliers were bundled out for a paltry 62 in 16.3 overs. Mufasil (23) provided the sole resistance for Ceylon.
