Click for Scorecard

The senior Yadavas side took on Menara CC in what they would have expected to be a relatively easy game. However, Menara CC were not going to give without a fight. Their openers Ishaq Khan & Deepak Khullar started things off well, but the introduction of Manbhir Singh & Lucky Kusuma, sparked of a collapse and yet another low total loomed. However, in what was to be a weekend of late-order fightbacks, Prakash Kewlani & Amit Bhat got together to put on 70 runs and take Menara to a good score of 164 in 35 overs.

When Faheem Butt, got rid of both Viraj Bhammar & Manbhir Singh cheaply, Menara CC was right in the game and two further wickets, including one to Deepak Khullar, kept them with a good chance of their first win. Gamantika, who has been showing a lot more application recently, then partnered beautifully with Raj Kapadia to resurrect the Senayan innings and when he has bowled by Vipul, Lucky Kusuma, then took on the mantle of batting sensibly to take his team home with 4 wickets and 5 overs in hand.
