BC Champions 154/3 (17.2)
Result - BC Champions won by 7 wickets
Electing to bat first, Vancouver Vibes scored a creditable 153/8 in their allotted 20 overs, mainly thanks to Pargat Singh 46 and Faisal Butt 48. Gurtej Singh and Paramjot Singh were the main wicket takers for the BC Champions, taking 2 wickets apiece; but the tidiest spell came from Vinod Kumar who took 1-20 off his 4 overs.
In the run chase, Vancouver Vibes got off to a good start being 23/0 after 2.4 overs and up with the run rate required. However, they then lost opener Kay Bakshi for 13 and it was ‘that man’ Parag Sood who kept the runs flowing and at 129/2, after 15 overs, it looked like they had the game in the bag, with only 25 runs to get off 5 overs.
But Parag Sood (55) was then needlessly run out, after a mix up with Harjinder (34*), and then the BC Champions looked like they were going backwards to the pace of Anwar. However, Harjinder and Yudhbir took them home in the 17th over and into the Final tomorrow.
