A splendid innings of 84 not out by Paul Drickpaul powers Invaders
into the playoffs in the NYSCL 25 overs Championship division IIB
competition sponsored by P.K. Realty and Mortgage Company. Young brothers
won the toss and sent Invaders in to bat.
Invaders were soon struggling at 29 for 3 after 8 overs, skipper Drickpaul
stayed to the end hitting 8 fours and 5 sixes and he received support
from Boodram who contributed 21 and Aanand Drickpaul with 17. After
25 overs Invaders finish on 187 for 9 wickets. Bowling for Young Brothers
Tiwari took 3 wickets, P Mohan and V Gunga with 2 wickets each were
the pick of the bowlers.
Young Brothers in their reply found runs hard to get on a rain affected
wicket and made 129 for 6 from 25 overs with their captain Dhanraj
top scoring with 47 not out. Seodat did the damage with the ball for
Invaders with 3 for 9 off his 5 overs spell.
