Shubham Patni’s 5 wicket haul proves ‘Ashubh’ for Emerio Dragons as they collapse to an upset loss against Ceylon Cavaliers

The last game saw Ceylon Cavaliers upset Emerio Dragons on the back of a searing spell by the young Shubham Patni. The unorthodox Anjaneyulu Katta continued to rattle batsmen as he accounted for the dangerous Dihan Silva early, while David Surjit bowled tightly to squeeze out one end. A rearguard fightback by Hashmatullah & Lakmal Jayathilaka ensured Ceylon got to 97. The fancied batting lineup of Emerio Dragons should have felt the total was well within their reach, but they hadn’t accounted for a fired up Shubham Patni. He accounted for the top order in quick time and when it looked like Faisal Hashmi would steady the ship, he returned to knock out the middle order and Emerio Dragons collapsed for just 72 runs to give Ceylon a superb, 25 runs victory.
