Manan Poddar won the toss for IE and elected to Bat first, Our Batsman were not able to perform upto mark and our top batting order collapsed but later Ankit & Joel made sure that we put enough runs on board and their performance helped the team to put a target of 149 in 40 overs for Triskels.
Second innings was one of the best performance by IE. All the bowlers took responsibility and leaded the team from front. It was an excellent team effort on the field, complimented by great bowling by our bowlers, with a special mention of Ankit, Rama & Sid for excellent bowling as we bowled out the Triskel Tav. in 28th over, letting them make only 76 runs. We won the first ECCL league match and this win had put us on the top of the table.
We also like to extend our special thanks to Our Alumni Mr. Rama Chandra Rao Jupali (IMBA’12) and Mr. Jospeph Thomas (Phd. Student), as they show up at last moment and helped the team while 2 of our player was not able to make it to the match on Saturday.
Our team is highly encouraged and motivated and is very well looking forward to next match against Madrid Cricket Club on 25th April. #GoIE #IEvsMCC
