27 August 2017 - CSPL Quarter-Final Nomads CC vs Geneva International CC in Winterthur

It was a tough game for GICC in Winterthur after a long drive, and Nomads were clear favorites to win, coming into the crunch game. The Nomads won the toss and elected to bat, and got off to a great start thanks to Fahim who played a lot of crisp drives that went to the boundary. Bakir got the first breakthrough in the 10th over, after the openers had piled on 83 runs in no time. The top order delivered for the Nomads, with the top 4 batsmen taking the score past 200, scoring at close to 10 runs per over, exploiting the short legside boundary, scoring as many as 25 sixes in that region! With GICC making a good comeback in the last 6 overs or so, Nomads ended their innings at an imposing score of 369/7, which put a lot of pressure on GICC in a critical high pressure game.

The GICC chase started badly with 2 quick wickets going down, in a quest for a fast start. Bakir and Balaji steadied the ship and almost got to the 15-over mark but Bakir was out to a soft dismissal, caught off the bowling of Fahim. Amar looked in great touch and got off to a great start, while Balaji was settling in nicely at the other end, moving towards a well-deserved half century. The wickets kept falling at one end though, even as Balaji was starting to open up with some hits over square leg. While the match was slipping away from GICC, the team was fully behind Balaji and it was an emotional moment when he brought up his first 100 of the season in our last game, and finished the innings unbeaten on 118, with five 4s and eight 6s, taking GICC to a respectable score of 248.

Nomads won the game by 121 runs, but GICC made sure we put up a good fight, with Balaji's century being the highlight. GICC left Winterthur with a lots of learnings, and we will be back stronger together next season!

Cheers team!!
