Dhruv started off the proceedings with a massive hit for 6 striaght over the bowlers head. We lost a few wickets in between but the scoring rate never dipped below 7 RPO. Krishna and Aditya played very important roles to ensure CCC delivered the knockout punch to IC-1. Krishna was very elegant and played brilliant cricketing shots to toy with the bowling and reached 64. Aditya played a breezy innings with some big hitting and good running between the wickets to make 52* in just 38 balls with 2 huge sixers.
With the ball it was carnage right from the beginning and International Cavaliers 1 stood no chance whatsoever. Bowling with the new ball, Karandeep ripped through their heart with a 5/15 ably supported by an excellent spell from Ankit. In the end, Continental won the game by a whooping 225 runs.
