Meanwhile, GMIS’ Naresh Gupta and Pratyush Chaturvedi ensured no calculators were needed as they decimated TKCC by 6 wickets in their encounter on Saturday. Batting first, TKCC piled up 255/7 in 35 overs. Rakesh Gowda top scored with an unbeaten 93 while Hitesh Malhotra and Rakshan Rai helped themselves to half centuries. Pratyush took 3/24. GMIS started with the calmness that appears before the storm as they reached 35/1 after 12 overs. Nothing prepared TKCC for the onslaught that followed thereafter as Naresh Gupta bludgeoned 80 runs off just 27 balls, and in the company of Pratyush Chaturvedi ( 70 not-out off 35 balls ) finished the game in the 32nd over. Such was the speed of this partnership that before TKCC could blink an eye, it was game, set and match GMIS.
