The first Semi- Final clash - 04/10/2016


A semi- final clash like no other was set to go underway between table toppers Mysuru Warriors and The Bellary Tuskers. These two teams had already faced each other once in the group stage and the Warriors managed to beat the Tuskers but none of that mattered here.

The mighty clash was all set and started at 17:30 with the Warriors winning the toss and deciding to put the Tuskers out to bat. The Tuskers were off to a slow start with just 55 runs before the fall of the first wicket. The partnership between KB Pawan, 62 runs in just 47 balls and Rohan Kadam, 28 runs in 25 balls was a good base for the Tuskers to build on.

Pawan kept the batting on track for the Tuskers as he sent balls to the boundary very often, he soon received immense support from Skipper Amith Varma, together they managed to add 68 runs in just 47 balls. Suchith came in with all his experience and skill and broke this partnership that ultimately helped in restricting the Tuskers to a fightable total.

With the departure of Pawan and the Warriors getting a much needed breakthrough, the confidence among the Warriors improved and they managed to get a few more wickets in quick succession. The 20 overs soon came to an end with the Tuskers scoring 157, a reachable total for the Warriors.

It was time for the men in yellow to come out to the middle and show their power with the bat. Hoysala and Bhatkal, the Warriors openers have shown that they are usually in the zone and get off to a brilliant start but today the start was a little on the slower side and the bat and ball just did not seem to click for the Warriors.

Bhatkal and Skipper Manish Pandey were at the crease, giving the warriors hope and a fighting chance. The Warriors hopes and confidence seemed to crumble when right handed skipper was sent back to the bench by Amith Varma.

Bhatkal was on 47, and was close to reaching his half century. He tried to send the ball across the ropes and help the Warriors bag another win. In the end, both Bhatkal and Jonnathan were sent back within a span of nine runs.

The Warriors hopes had still not completely gone as Anirudha Joshi, who has been in amazing form lately and showed some brilliant stroke-play was at the middle. Being at the center of the action is harder than it looks on television, and with some brilliant bowling by the Tuskers, the Warriors were running out of balls. Ultimately they needed 40 runs in 23 balls.

The Warriors might have lost the game by 10 runs and exited the Karnataka Premier League 2016, but they won the hearts of so many people. They are our true champions and have played some brilliant cricket over the past few weeks. They reached the hearts of thousands of people and will come back next year harder and stronger, waving their yellow flag.
