Mtech01 square cuts Mtech2k to emerge victors

3 November 2001

In the first ever playoff between mtech01 and metch2k, mtech2k had to resort to the services of shantanu (and some enthu players from mtech01 for fielding) due to the absence of a few regular players. So, that brought shantanu straight out of hibernation to the cricketing field.

The match had all the ingredients of a classic tussle. Mtech2k managed well with their scarce resources and scored 101 runs in there allotted 15 overs with 1 wicket still reamining. Significant credit goes to wides conceded by mtech01. Mtech01 started out in style with Abhinay hitting the first ball to fence. But then they were tied down by some steady mtech2k bowling and in the process, as it happens many a times, lost wickets in quick succession. But then the lower order played sensibly to safely guide mtech01 to victory. Also, a lot of wides towards the end of the innings by metch2k helped the cause of mtech01. Mtech01 romped home with 2 more overs to go and won the match by 4 wickets.

Among the highlights of the match were a stunning catch by pranav off his own bowling and a direct hit by ajay which left janaki languishing in the middle. Venkatesh took three key wickets and also scored some runs towards the end for mtech01. Ajay played a typical dravidian innings when it was most needed for mtech01. But the award for most involved player of the match must go to pranav not only for his good batting and bowling but also for his untiring enthusiasm to not let mtech01 score get out of his sights (probably, the time has come to employ the exotic tools of pen and paper for keeping track of the score saving each side a lot of energy ;-) ). All in all, an immensely entertaining match both for players and the audience (ask anu if anyone has doubts ;-)).

So, its advantage mtech01 for now. But there is still hope for mtech2k as - hopefully - there are some more matches to come. The next in line in this contest for sporting supremacy is the upcoming voleyball match between metch01 and mtech2k. Best of luck guys. Keep the adrenaline flowing!!
