Qui Vive 1 went in the match with lot of confidence from the previous win vs. Ajax and some players finding form early in the season. The new guns had fired and the captain was confident that we are on the right track. Well, that feeling turned upside down very quickly
Qui Vive started with the opening pair of Akash and Maninder; Both had played well in the last match and Akash took the opening spot in Amar’s absence. We lost both our openers fairly quickly with just 24 on the board. VRA came in with a very good team and a young top klasse player who showed our batsman what we are up against when we get promoted. Swapnil and Santosh went in at 3 and 4 and tried to play sensibly to ensure no more shocks happened. Swapnil aiming to accelerate, hit one straight to mid-off and we were 63/3. Santosh was caught behind on a peach of a delivery from V Singh and we lost 2 of our best in span of 2 overs sitting at 65/4. Prashanth held the ground by playing out the good deliveries and targeting the bad ones. A small partnership was building between him and Savneet but was short lived as Savneet was judged LBW and the scoreboard looked ugly for QV 84/5.
