Today while chasing 136 runs Sairaj Yuvraj Warriors managed to get 125 runs in their 20 overs. They lost the match to Anand’s Cricket Academy by 11 runs. Their highest scorer was Vishal Gorgonda. He scored 22 runs.
Yesterday they fell short by 17 runs while chasing 154 runs against Neena Sports Club. Prasad Nakadi was their highest scorer with 21 runs.
A defeat of 11 runs and 17 runs is very close in T20 format. Sairaj Yiuvraj Warriors must be highly disappointed with these results. Their captain Raju Patil, aptly repeatedly said, “We should have won both these games.”
By restricted the opposition to less than 160, their bowlers had done their job. However it is their batting that has let them down. As the scorecard suggests none of their batsmen could even get pass the score of 30.
For chasing any total, it is important to have a big score by at least one batsmen. This is exactly where things are going wrong for the Warriors. None of their batsman have taken the responsibility to play the big innings.
With important matches to come, Sairaj Yuvraj Warriors would be hoping that at least now their batsman click and find some rhythm.
