Metro Indians took on TKCC Royals in the first of the two T20s. In what has now become a very predictable pattern, Kirubasankar (73 not out) once again was the batting star as he & Sabu Joy (44) took Metro Indians to a seemingly comfortable 163/3 in 20 overs. In hind-sight, maybe they should have looked for quicker runs, especially with so many wickets in hand. Neeraj Chaddha (64) who, on his day can be un-stoppable, was having one of those days, as he got TKCC off to a brisk start and his team was comfortably placed after 6 overs. Ashwin (3/30) & Venkat (2/46) then put the cat among the pigeons and triggered a mini-collapse. Rakesh Gowda (46), had to ensure he guided his team across the line with only 2 wickets in hand.
