Northern California, Michigan Score Upset Wins
Southern California enacted the biggest thriller of the competiton so far by edging Northern California (West Coast North) at 88th Street Seaview minutes after Michigan handed Texas (Central West Region) a trouncing at Gateway Park.
Mevan Fernando saved his best performance for just the perfect occasion with Southern California facing elimination following a big loss the previous day. He went on to star with bat and ball to spur his team to a one wicket victory with two balls to spare. They nipped home after scoring 150-9 in 49.4 overs in reply to Northern California, the one-time national champions, who were bundled out for 149 in 43 overs.

Dhuni with 32 to his team record the shock result. Saad Khan bagged
three wickets for 24 runs for Northern California and despite hauls
of 2-22 and 2-33 from Naseer Jamil and Hermandeep Kumar respectively,
it was not good enough to make up for a poor batting display. Fernando
was mainly responsible for Northern California’s demise as
he captured 4-18 in a tremendous spell of medium fast bowling and
duly carted off the Man of the Match award. He had excellent support
from leg spinner Gurpreet Sandhu who picked up 3-34.
a stunning batting display to record one of their biggest wins in
the competition’s history to come within one win of reaching
the tournament final for the first time. Despite more heroics from
Ryan Corns, Michigan, who triumphed by 58 runs, had their answer
in Sriverdana who was the architect of the victory as he starred
with both bat and ball. He topscored with 65 as Michigan rattled
up 275 all out in 48.2 overs.
As a result,
Texas and Northern California will go head to head while Michigan
and Southern California will collide, all at 108th Street where
net run rate might well decide the finalist, on Sunday.
