Mayur's and Dipen's swashbuckling innings "LIMIT" Fun Unlimited Cricket Club's FUN

After being put to bat first on a hot and humid day WGCC's Mayur and Dipen destroyed FUCC's bowling attack and took WGCC's score to 266 / 5 in 35 overs. 

Both of them played sensibly yet showed aggression when needed. Highlight was Mayur's magnificent 120 not out in 83 balls, but Dipen's crisp 79 in 82 balls can not be ignored. Dipen's shot selection was awesome and he rarely provided any chances. Mayur on the other hand started slowly but hammered FUCC's bowlers towards the end overs and scored almost 10-15 runs per over with 24 runs coming in the last over. FUCC bowled well intermittently but it could not restrict the flow of runs. Amit scored a brisk 24 (15 balls) and other batsmen Damu and Biv also scored briskly and contributed towards the final score.

Target of 267 was never an easy task for FUCC and WGCC was well aware of FUCC's batting power. FUCC started aggressively but combination of Arpit and Mayur ended initial onslaught. During middle overs FUCC tried consolidating the innings but sensible bowling and excellent fielding effort restricted FUCC to 207. Biv was a little expensive initially but he came back and took 3 wickets towards the end.  Prashant, Tarun, Mayur and Ashish also bowled well with Biv & Arpit taking 3 wickets each, Prashant taking 2 wickets, Tarun and Ashish taking 1 each. WGCC's plan worked out very well as it took wickets at the regular intervals and never allowed batsmen to take control. 

There were one or two drop catches out of several brilliant catching efforts by Mayur, Amit, Dipen, Adi, Sarvar, Damu and Tarun. Biv's left handed caught and bowled of the last wicket was an excellent example of that.

It was a tense game but both team fought hard while showing great sportsmanship but at the end better team won and also obtained the bragging rights till the next encoun
