posted May 4, 2017, 9:50 AM by Rahul Mandewalker
After finishing as the table toppers, 'FUCC' is riding high with the confidence and this time [ remember sunny k's attitude in game with MCC in 2016 ;) ] everyone in the team is aware of the fact that any team from here is one step away from being knocked out.

On reading the ground conditions, considering the dew on the surface Navanith won the toss and elected to Field first.





Rahul M

Yash K

Sunny E







Everyone in the league was talking about Shinde's 140 runs innings before the game and having heard that our bowlers are aware of their first target and have come up with excellent game plan not just for Shinde but as well as for the rest of the CL Team...and that is "Stick to Basics".

Sukesh aka Bhuvneshwar Kumar of  FUCC got first strike at their opener Mohammed ali supported by EXCELLENT catch from Yash at covers.
The very next over, Shiv striked againwith a lethal delivery to Shinde that kissed his bat and jumped into safe hands of Raj.
Sukesh got another wicket in his spell with courtesy of a stunning one hand catch from Shiv at long on.
This pair bowled a very good spell keeping things at a place and the CL batsman was never comfortable in the spell.
With the change of the spell, In comes Navi and Vinod who bowled well but were hit for few runs which eventually helped them to post a decent total at the end.
Navi decided to slow their runs pace and have brought another change of spell with Harissh and Yash.
This duo have dragged back the momentum from CL and bowled beautifully...Yash and Harissh got 3 wickets during their spell supported by excellent catching from the team and not to foget brilliant ground fielding and two terrific runout's from Kishan. Rahul M chipped in with couple of overs at the end of the CL innings grabbing a wicket ensuring no heroics from their batsman.

CL ended up their innings at 124/9.

Special Mentions: Sukesh and Shiv's spell, Harissh and Yash's spell, Ground fielding by Kishan at point and Brilliant catching from Gaurav, Shiv and Yash.


Everyone in the team are well aware of the tricky situations many teams were in the past chasing low totals.
Keeping that in mind our opening pair Raj and Gaurav started the chase in a positive way running hard between the wickets and hitting odd boundaries.
Raj got out to a loosener by Shinde and Gaurav followed Raj adding another 7 runs to the team total. FUCC is 87/2.
Having a platform setup by opening pair, Kishan and Sunny E took quick singles and doubles in the run chase without much pressure of the required rate.
Kishan striking few boundaries helped the team in a smooth chase and he got out by a stunning catch at cover from Jadhav.
Rahul M ensured the teams win with a boundary to wrap up the day and FUCC is into Quarter Finals.

Special Mentions: Raj and Gaurav's Partnership, Kishan's Innings.

We are now few steps away from the Crown, Let's focus on the path rather than the destination....we are a Champion Team and we will be "CHAMPIONS".....Go FUCC.
