In a Division 1 game at Purwakarta, SenayanCC defeated MenaraCC by 51 runs. Being asked to bat first, the experience of Prem Subramaniam ( 73 runs off 74 balls ) helped SenayanCC reach 176 runs before being all-out. Anjar Tadarus chipped in with 38 runs. Taimur Khan, with his smart variations of pace at the death, took 4/33 while Harish Tiwari took 2/19.  In a ground that had a heavy outfield, where run scoring was going to be difficult, a target of 177 was always going to be a tough ask. Menara could not string any significant partnerships together as it went down for a meagre 125 runs, conceding defeat by 51 runs. Shubho Sarkar led the effort with the ball taking 5/25, while Raj Kapadia supported with 3 wickets for 21 runs. For Menara, Taimur Khan scored a patient 37 runs, but without support from the other end, it was simply too much to ask of the diminutive player.
