Badrinath led Karaikudi steals the game from Patriots

After watching today’s game, it can be safely said that TNPL is no less than IPL in terms of action. Yesterday we saw a high-scoring thriller but today the scenes were opposite as it was a low scoring game which the karaikudi team snatched from the jaws of patriots.

Batting first the Karaikudi team could just score 111 runs. Only 3 batsmen could touch the 10 run mark including Badrinath who scored 49 runs in 46 balls. The late show of 28 of 17 balls from C Ganapathy helped the team to cross the 100 run and put 111 runs on the board. Ashwin Christ scalped 3 wickets whereas all-rounder Washington Sundar chipped in with two wickets.

It was an easy target for patriots but they made a mistake at the start by relegating Sundar from top to one down. He could just score 1 run. None of the batsmen was able to stand on the crease for long. Ganapathy who starred with the bat was asking difficult questions to the batsman, meanwhile, he added 3 wickets to his name. Patriots team could just score 103 runs in their quota of 20 over thus losing the game by 8 runs.

Ganapathy was awarded the man of the match award for his all-round show.
