In the third meeting between these two teams, as I mention before there are bitter rivals on the cricket field but very good friends off the field. Last Sunday Shattaz won the toss and elected to bat first, after a shaky start in the first four overs, Shattaz batsmen decided to let loose on Flasherz bowlers and put up a hefty score of 157 off their allotted 20 overs.
Flasherz batsmen in reply knew that it was never going to be an easy task, but always think that it was doable with their batting line up. Flasherz opening pair of Awaz and Mark EZ started their innings in a blazing manner scoring at 9 runs an over for the first 5 overs. Shattaz got the break through when Awaz was brilliantly caught at cover of Kumar bowling with the score on 45 in the sixth over.
It was all downhill from this point for the Flasherz batsmen and some very good fielding from the young Shattaz team contributed to four run outs. Superb bowling from Kumar, Ajay and Vanesh Gunga had Flasherz crumbling to less than 100 runs all out.
Kudos to the Shattaz team they have now accomplished what they have been wanting to do since the formation of team, to beat Flasherz.
