With a low score to defend against a good batting team the Wolfpack players knew they would have to come out with extra energy if they have any chance of winning, they did with captain D. Autar leading from the front.

D. Autar struck in his first over removing Vick caught without scoring. In the third over of his spell, he bowled the over of his life picking up 4 wickets in 4 balls and which shattered the top order and pull his team right back into contention.

Strikers Back On Track
By Prame Singh

After a devastating and shocking loss to the Invaders Cricket Club last weekend, Strikers are back on track. Winning the toss and decided to take the first swing with the absent of their experienced opening batsman R. Munilall who is averaging 34 runs per game in this 30 over competition. Cricket International strikes early sending the two opening batsman back for the total of 1 run.

The elite and experienced Strikers team was in no state of panicking after having M. Latchman and H. Mangroo who put their heads down with the partnership of 33 runs before M. Latchman was run out for 20.

Joining H. Mangroo was Ex-Legends captain Baio Kalika who was still looking forward for a breakout game since joining the Strikers cricket club, after getting settled he played a number of splendid power drives that saved the day  scoring the game's highest score of 87 runs which consist of 12 fours and 3 sixes. Strikes was all out for 184 runs with great contributions from M. Latchman 20, H. Mangroo 22, S. Sooku 18, and J. Parsram 12 not out. As Cricket International came to the plate looking to better 187 they ran into big trouble loosing their first two wickets in the first over to fast bowler B. Bhadrasain for only 4 runs.

Strikers went ahead and bowled out Cricket International for a total of 66 runs which includes 4 of their batsman went back to the pavilion without getting off the mark. Bobby Bhadrasain and Prame Singh picked up three wickets each while M. Ramjewan K. Ibrahim grabs a wicket to conclude four games into the 30 over competition.

It was a great game with the absent of a league's umpire but spectator/supporter Sato Pillahar did a wonderful job before he was asked to leave the game by the captain of the Cricket International team who didn't respect a decision after he made a no-call wide deliver. Strikers are looking forward to challenge the experienced and friendly Ravens next week.
