Dell EMC post convincing 6-wicket win

Dell EMC posted a comfortable victory over Cerner in a lower scoring encounter in the Brigade Cup 2020.

Batting first, Cerner could muster only 102 runs on the board. Their openers Aswin(1) and Amar Singh Verma(13) failed to provide them with a strong start. It was that kind of a day where none of the Cerner batsmen got going. Nithin Shyam(18) and Manohar(17) were the only significant contributors to a below part total. With no batsmen contributing much, Cerner’s innings fell apart due to which they failed to put up a respectable score on the board.

The Dell EMC bowlers bowled well in tandem to restrict Cerner. Dheeraj Nayyar(2/7), Santosh(2/16) and Moses John(2/25) all picked up a couple of wickets each. They kept picking wickets at regular intervals that put pressure on Cerner’s batsmen. This kept them on the backfoot throughout the innings.

It was a light task for the Dell EMC batsmen to chase down this target. Dheeraj Nayyar top scored with 49 off 41 balls. His knock consisted of 4 fours and 2 sixes. Santosh (37) also played a significant knock that had 4 fours and a six as they easily wrapped up the chase.

They eventually overhauled the target (108/4) in 16.1 overs, therefore winning the game with 6 wickets to spare.
