Season Opener T20

20 May 2013

Burghs had the first T20 of the season on May 20th, 2013. It didn't went as planned. Although we had some positives come out of the game with new players showing potential, it was a disappointing start of the T20 season. DCC won the toss and went into bat. Their openers put up a great display with some of not so great bowling bowling performances. Arun and Ilyas started well with the ball. Ilyas being the pick of the bowlers. DCC finishing with 152 and yet another half century for Anshul, the target did not seem to be out of reach. Our batting on the top though, had a bit of work to do. With the tight bowling, we could only manage 30 off the first 10 overs with the loss of only 1 wicket. Some serious reconstruction was required at that stage. Myself, Arun, and Harpreet added 90 in the last 10 overs to finish with 120. Over all, we definitely had a lot to learn from this game and hopefully, we can build on our momentum.
