Cubs and Swamibapa win in Nakuru

PBH Royal cubs took on Melvins in Game 11 of the Crown Berger 20-20 Tournament in Nakuru and gave their opponents all sorts of difficulty. Melvins batting first lost regular and cheap wickets yet still managed to reach 118/8 in their 20 overs thanks mainly to a solo effort by Saad (?) who made 40 and the Cubs bowlers who gave away a huge 41 extras. Only one other Melvins batsman made it to double figures.

Wickets for the Royal Cubs were shared around with Bilal ? (1/9), Raj ? (1/12) Jaymin ? (2/19), Harshil ? (1/10), and Divyang ? (1/15) all contributing to the cause.

Cubs reply got off to a shaky start with both openers falling cheaply but then Bilal (41) and Divyang (45*) combined to steer their side to an easy win. Cubs finished on 124/4 with 6 overs still remaining. Pick of Mevins bowlers was Patshi ? who picked up 2 wickets.

In game 12, Swamibapa won the toss and opted to bat against Spinknit. Anil ?, Swamibapa's opener carried hie bat for the innings with a wonderful 67 and combined with 44 from number 3, Jogesh ? a huge total looked on the cards. As it was, Spinknit fought back with a flurry of late wickets, but Anil remained to the end and Swamibapa finished on an imposing 149/6.

Spinknit never looked in the game against the tight bowling ofscrews, they folded to 107 all out.
