    Skipper SB Joshi's all round effort - 3 for 22 with the leather and 25 runs with the willow enabled Shamanoor Davanagere Diamonds to register a comfortable three wickets win over Mangalore United.

     

    Opting to bat first, Mangalore United posted 119 for 8 in its 20.0 overs. It lost its openers and the score board read a dismal 9 for 2.

     

    It lost wickets at regular intervals. Nidhuvan Kumara and R Jonathan added 27 runs for the third wicket and R Jonathan and Skipper RK Sabharwal added 31 runs for the fourth wicket. Apart from these two stands they were no match redeeming stands.

     

    R Jonathan top scored the innings with a well compiled 39 runs. He was at the crease for 73 minutes and faced 45 deliveries. He hit three boundaries.

     

    Skipper YK Sabharwal scored 21 runs which came in 21 balls. He hit a four and a six and was at the crease for 25 minutes.

  • KPL Match 10: Belgavi Panthers won by seven wickets

    Put into bat, Bijapur Bulls scored a none-too-impressive total of 131 for the loss of seven wickets in its 20 overs.

     

    They lost the openers fairly early in their innings {G Dhiman for a duck and MR Beerala for 11} and the score board read 2 for 26. Two run outs – JP Shinde for 12 and skipper SP Shinde for 12 – saw them reeling at 4 for 50.

     

    An useful partnership of 43 runs for the fifth wicket between DT Patil and N Mulky was the substance of Bijapur Bulls' innings and 15 runs were added for the unfinished eight wicket as Bulls reached 131 for 7.

     

    J Shetty {21 of 19 balls with three fours}, DT Patil {22 of 22 balls with 3 fours} and N Mulky {28 of 23 balls with two fours} contributed to Bull's total.

     

    Good fielding display on the field ensured that Bulls did not score freely as they wanted. Two run outs added to their misery. B Naveen returned with figures of 2 for 28.

     

    Replying to the total, J Arunkumar and KS Ponnappa made mincemeat of Bulls' bowling by posting the first three

    Bangalore Provident registered its first win in this edition when they beat Bangalore Brigadiers by seven wickets.

     

    Bangalore Brigadiers had a comfortable start to their innings as their first wicket partnership realized 85 runs. They lost their way in the middle and slumped to 108 for 5 – losing four wickets for the addition of 23 runs.

They were unable to capitalize on the brilliant start given by their openers.

     

    Vinu Prasad's late order flourish with 26 runs enabled them to reach 141. NC Aiyappa's two wickets and two run outs restricted Brigadiers to post a total

  • KPL Match 7: Malnad Gladiators won by seven wickets

    Put into bat after losing the toss, Mysore Maharaajas put up a decent total of 133 for 7 in its 20 overs. Opener KB Pawan {27}, C Raghu {25} and skipper CJ William {22 not out} were the main contributors to the total.

     

    It was a sedate display by Mysore team against a disciplined bowling by Malnad team.

     

    Malnad bowlers posed all sorts of troubles for the Mysore batsmen and had them reeling at 101 for 6.

     

    A brilliant throw by R Ninan to the wicket keeper KC Avinash caught C Raghu short of his crease and he was run out for 25 {7 for 123 at 19.3 overs}.

     

    Lusty hitting by skipper CJ William who scored ten runs of the last three deliveries saw Mysore team reach 133.
