Match Summary 

VB Kanchi Veerans 133-8

Dindigul Dragons 134-3

Dindigul Dragons won by 7 wickets



Kanchi Veerans started well with a 50-run partnership between openers Vishal Vaidya and S Arun. The first wicket fell in the 7th over which opened the floodgates as the following three batsmen went for 0, 2 and 2.

Vishal Vaidya was the lone man standing for Kanchi Veerans with a half-century and with some assistance in the form of a 20-ball 26 from wicketkeeper Suresh Lokeshwar, the Kachi Veerans managed 133.

The good thing for them was that after being reduced to 99 for seven in the 16th over, they did not get bowled out, but 133 was never going to be a probing total for the table toppers Dindigul Dragons.




Mohan Abhinav and Hari Nishanth bowled well for the Dragons, sharing five wickets between them, while being economical at the same time.

Hari Nishanth came back to open the innings for Dindigul Dragons and notched up an unbeaten 44-ball 61. He got a good opening partner in N Jagadeesan, who was coming fresh off a century in the last game as the Dragons coasted to a seven-wicket victory.
