Well, so after two consecutive days of rain playing a spoilsport, we have finally managed to get a result. Ruby Trichy Warriors steamroll past Nellai Royal Kings, handing them a 74 run defeat. 

The Royal Kings lost way too many wickets in the PowerPlay, making it very difficult for them to come back from there (especially in a run chase). The warriors were all over them, picking up 5 wickets in the first 5 overs. The chase looked over before it even started. Sunil Sam and Saravan Kumar were ruthless with the new ball as the entire top order went packing after registering single-digit scores. 

Baba Indrajith(32) and Sanjay Yadav(28) showed some resilience and regrouped the innings after the collapse. They formed a 63 run partnership and helped the team make a strong recovery from 12/5. They targetted veteran Antony Dhas who was very expensive today. Akash Sumra did trouble them a bit but failed to pick up any wickets. 

It had to be a run out to break the partnership with Sanjay Yadav finding himself in the danger end amidst a miscommunication. The rest of the batting lineup capitulated from there as the last five wickets fell for mere 2 runs. M Mathivanan got the final three wickets in just four deliveries to bowl The Royal Kings out for 77. 
13.4 M Mathivanan to Athisayaraj Davidson, LBW GIVEN! A full ball bowled on middle and off, Davidson is trapped in front of the stumps as the umpire raises the finger. The Warriors have thumped the Royal Kings!

13.3 M Mathivanan to Ajith Kumar T, LBW! A length ball bowled, Ajith looks to defend it to the bowler but is beaten for pace and is struck pretty adjacent to the stumps!
13.2 M Mathivanan to Ajith Kumar T, a full ball bowled on the off-stump, Kumar defends it to the off-side for no runs
Ajith Kumar, right-hand bat, joins the crease.
13.1 M Mathivanan to Baba Indrajith, WICKET! A length ball bowled into middle and leg, Indrajith looks to play it into the off-side but takes it on the pad, the umpire has no hesitation in giving that one out!
Mathivanam M joins the attack.
Just when The Royal Kings were getting back into the game, the run-out of Sanjay Yadav pushed them back. To make things worse, a wicket very next ball made the target look unacheivable.
