Turf T20 Cup for Law firms

Titus & Co, Luthra & Luthra, Kochhar & Co, K&S Partners and Amarchand Mangaldas were the winning teams of the intra-pool matches of the fifth weekend of the Delhi Twenth20 tournament last weekend under foggy conditions.

A total of five matches were played on Saturday and Sunday at the TURF Twenty20 cricket tournament for the Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF) Cup, with excitement galore half-way through to the finals.

Titus faced S&R Associates in pool A, pool B saw Saikrishna play Amarchand and pool C Anand & Anand against Kochhar. In pool D two matches took place, with one between Luthra and Dua Associates and the other seeing DSK and K&S Partners face off.

The games took place at different venues under foggy conditions due the onset of winters in Delhi.

A combined display of strong bowling and batting order led to defending champion Titus’s 157 runs and a bonus point victory over opponents S&R Associates which succumbed to an all-out defeat in just 14.2 overs for 49 runs total.

Titus batsman Shamik Narain contributed 96 runs to the team’s total of 206 runs and was declared man of the match with a grand total of 11 fours. Titus bowler Sunil Kumar meanwhile gave S&R a meagre three runs for thre overs bowled, while striking down three wickets.

Another convincing victory was achieved by Luthra & Luthra against Dua Associates in pool D. After Titus’s big total of 206, Luthra scored the second-highest total of this weekend after two of its batsmen Manish Gupta and Hitesh Tara made 52 and 58 runs respectively. The team notched up 188 runs target for Dua needing only four batters over 20 overs.

Dua failed to chase and were all out in 14.1 overs with only 99 runs, gifting Luthra a bonus point too.

Luthra star bowler-cum-batsman Gupta was awarded man of the match for taking down five of Dua’s wickets in only 1.1 overs and running a 52 and six 4s before retiring due to injury.

In the other pool D match, K&S Partners defeated DSK Legal by two wickets. K&S successfully chased a target of 116 runs after losing out 8 wickets for a total of 117 runs in 18.1 overs. K&S bowler Rama Srinivasan was declared man of the match for knocking down 5 wickets of the opposing team in four overs.

A set of two matches between Saikrishna and Amarchand in Pool B and Anand & Anand and Kochhar & Co in Pool C scheduled to be played in the earlier weeks finally took place this weekend with a windfall of points for both Amarchand and Kochhar for their victories.

Saikrishna after winning the toss made an easy total of 139 runs for Amarchand in 20 overs for a loss of six wickets. Team Amarchand won by 6 wickets without gaining a bonus point, batsman Prashant Mehta who was not out at 64 runs was the man of the match as a score of 140 was won in 18.3 overs with 3 wickets down.

Finally, in this week’s Pool C match, Kochhar’s strategy to field first worked in their favour against team Anand & Anand. At the end of 20th over, team Anand set a paltry 105 runs target after losing out 9 wickets. In reply, Kochhar scored 109 runs in 17.1 overs for 4 wickets.

Kochhar all rounder Sultan Ansari picked up man of the match award.

In the points table Titus and Luthra now stand head and shoulders above the competition in pools A and D respectively with 15 points each after three games played. Amarchand leads pool B with 9 points and two wins in two matches, while Kochhar & Co is in the lead of pool C with the same statistics. Pool D, where all games have now played three matches, saw Dua slot into the number two slot behind Luthra with 9 points.
