TNPL 2019 - Murali Vijay's ton takes Ruby Trichy Warriors to first win this season
It was Murali Vijay who shone for the Warriors again. After missing his century by just one run in the last match, Vijay slammed a ton in this game to take the Warriors to a 17-run win.
Ruby Trichy Warriors 177-4
TUTI Patriots 160-7
Ruby Trichy Warriors won by 17 runs
This was expected to be quite a one-sided encounter as Dragons had not lost even one of their six encounters. On the contrary, Ruby Trichy Warriors after playing five matches were yet to open their account.
But, against all odds, the Warriors clinched a 17-run victory against the overwhelming favourites Dindigul Dragons.
It was Murali Vijay who shone for the Warriors again. After missing his century by just one run in the last match, Vijay slammed a ton in this game and with a half-century from Adithya Ganesh, the team posted 177 runs on the board.
All Tuti Patriots' bowlers went for runs but it was Athisayaraj Davidson who picked up four wickets, while giving away just 24 runs.
The opening partnership of 41 between Subramaniam Siva and Akshay Srinivasan gave the Dragons hope, which was further consolidated when Srinivasan slammed a half-century.
But there were no other substantial contributions from the middle order batsmen. This was aided with some tight bowling from DT Chandrasekar and skipper Sai Kishore as the Warriors registered a 17-run win.
TUTI Patriots- Akshay Srinivasan, Shubham Mehta, S Abishiek, Nidhish Rajagopal, A Venkatesh, V Subramania Siva, Sivagnanan Senthilnathan, M Ganesh Moorthi, Vasanth Saravanan, Tamil Kumaran, V Athisayaraj Davidson
