SEMIS - Cleveland passes nerve-racking test!!

Cleveland prevailed a stern test to go through to the finals of the Div 1 40 over championship. Hats off to Oakland University Cricket Club for giving us such an immense fight.
On a gloomy saturday at Bloomer park, MI, we took part in one of the most stressful contest of the season and I should admit this has been by far the most thrilling game of my life.

Batting first we scored 280/6 in 40 overs and in most cases you would think that a score like that bats off most of the oppositions out of the game but OUCC and especially Harnik Shah had different ideas. They were all out for 264 in 39.3! and we booked our seat in the finals. But the man of the match was Harnik for his glorious knock of 124.

CLCC - 280/6 in 40 overs (Devin 80*, Viggy 39, Sujay 35, Goldy 33)
OUCC - 264/10 in 39.4 overs (Goldy 4/47, Viggy 3/57).
NEWS FLASH: We will face Farmington Hills in the Finals that will be played on Sunday, Oct 4.
I do want blog a detailed account of this game but cannot do so at this time. But its worth to note that for hours after the game, we were all exhausted, drained and tired. On top of that we had a tough 3 plus hours drive back home.
Its an honor to be in the finals but this semis test we passed was not just another game.
It was a truly extra ordinary experience. No matter what happens next Sunday, this game will remain etched in my memories forever!
will write more later ....
