Cheetahs v/s DalCha. July 25 2009. Match 15.

The Cheetahs found themselves unlucky again as the match ended up in a very close finish. The Dalcha's would be very happy to get their 3rd win when it looked like they are about to throw the game away.

Cheetahs won the toss and asked Dalcha's to bat. The Dalchas started badly and were 3 down for 25 at the end of 5 overs. In came captain Ujwal and Arif to the crease. They started rotating strike well and got 25 runs in next 2 overs. They were 49 for 3 after 7 now and were heading towards a decent total. But Ujwal and Arif thew caution to the wind and started going after the bowlers. The last 3 overs resulted in 40 runs and Dalcha were sitting pretty with a total of 89 in 10 overs. Ujwal played a captains knock and top scored with 44 not out, with 4 fours and a six. He was very well supported by his partner Abdul Razzaq a.k.a Arif, who scored 32 not out with 3 sixes.

The Cheetahs started with Anand and Ganesh. Ganesh was first to go, bowled by Karim. Anand played good and hit a six before He was bowled by Karim for 14. Ram and Sudhakar, started playing well and formed a good partnership. Ram got out at 14 and Sudhakar made 11. Pradeep came to the crease and started hitting the ball well. Cheetahs were 56 for 4 after 6 overs and needed another 34 in last 4 overs. But they started losing wickets and when Pradeep fell, it was all over for Cheetahs. Pradeep made 21. 11 were needed of the last over and after some good shots from Ramesh, it was 3 needed from the last ball. The shot was played to long off and crazy throw resulted in an overthrow as Cheetahs got a second run and were running for the third run, which would have given them a victory. But Kareem, kept a cool head and walked over to non strikers and ran out the batsman. The game was tied but Dalcha's won, since they had lost less wickets. The Cheetahs finished with 89/8 after 10 overs. Kareem picked up 3 crucial wickets and remained cool in the end to get the run out.
