It was a damp day with overnight rain but the pitch was dry as WGCC had covered it the previous evening. WTCC won the toss and decided to bat first. Sagar and Prashant shared the new ball; they were pretty consistent with their line and length and didn't allow openers to score quickly. Sagar got the first break through with batsman edging the ball and Dipen taking a good catch near third man.
After that, wickets kept tumbling with Mayur & Damu taking 3 wickets each, and Amar / Valkal taking 1 wicket each. WTCC was never able to accelerate and build partnerships, so they could only score 68 in 16.2 overs. Dipen took 2 catches and Ashish was involved in a scintillating run out.

WGCC opened batting with Mayur and Ashish. While Ashish took time to settle down, Mayur started briskly and scored at a rapid pace. In no time he scored a brilliant half century with excellent shot selection and placement. I think Gaba enjoyed his batting the most from the non striker end, but he made sure that we did not lose any wicket.

WGCC won the match comfortably with 11.3 overs to spare. Noticeable performances were by Mayur scoring 53 runs in 30 balls, 3 wickets & a catch, by Damu 2 overs, 3 wickets and only giving 4 runs and Dipen taking two difficult catches.
