HGS post 33-run win over Brigade

HGS posted a comfortable 33-run win over Brigade in the Brigade Cup 2020 tournament.

HGS posted a modest total of 161/5 in their 20 overs as they batted first. Openers Sridhar and Tuhin got HGS off to a solid start as they added 92 runs for the opening wicket. Sridhar missed out on a well deserved fifty as he was run-out on 49. He smashed as many as 7 fours in his knock. His partner Tuhin also missed out on a fifty scoring 44 with 6 fours and 2 sixes. However, once the openers were dismissed, the batting side seemed to have lost its way a bit. Cameos from Hathim ( 20 off 14) and Regan ( 16* off 4), however, propelled them past the 160 run mark.

The Brigade batsmen faltered in the run-chase. They never looked as though they would chase down the target. Brigade got off to a poor start as openers Senthil(12) and Naveen(0) were sent back early. Furthermore, they were soon reduced to 35/4 that pushed them on the backfoot. However, Rahul Kodge (36) and Keshav Naik (41) did put up a 79-run stand in the middle. Unfortunately, however, it was not enough to take them past the line.

Rajesh ( 3/18) and Sanju Birur (3/23) were the pick of the bowlers for HGS. Rajesh was also adjudged player of the match.
