HCC victorious by huge margin in season opener

HCC played Finn-Cricket club in their season opener of SM40 division 2 competition at Kauniainen. HCC batted first and recorded a huge total of 324 for the loss of 7 wickets riding on a good opening stand by Zahoor and Vineet, and later a blistering century by debutant Khaled, supported by cameos by Kamran and Srikishan.

While Vineet scored a well paced 58 to lay a solid foundation for the innings along with Zahoor, Khaled’s innings was special as it came up in 49 deliveries and literally knocked the stuffings out of the Finn-Cricket bowling attack.

Set the daunting total, Finn-Cricket openers were cautious to start with. However after testing the outside edge of the openers a few time, HCC opening bowlers broke through the ranks with both Khaled and Affan removing a batsman each within the first 5 overs. The batting side tried to consolidate for a while with good knocks by Ganesh and Ram , however it was the persistence of the HCC bowlers and efficient field placements by our Skipper Venkat, that resulted in periodic breakthroughs and dismissals of the Finn-Cricket batsmen.

We were able to bundle them up for a meagre total of 147 runs in the 26th over, with Venkat leading from the front with 3 wickets followed by Zahoor and Akhil with 2 wickets each. Arjith, Khaled and Affan picked a wicket each.

It was a tremendous performance, both in batting and bowling. Hope the form continues throughout the season. See the scorecard here
