The much awaited face off between Ruby and Diamond took place today, on a pleasant morning of the 19th of June, 2009. In the end, the Diamond team emerged triumphant, by scoring a comprehensive victory (by 5 wickets) over the Ruby’s. The Ruby’s won the toss and batted first. They were off to a decent start, before the fall of wickets crumbled their pace. It was a disciplined bowling performance from the Diamond’s, who kept taking wickets at regular intervals to halt Ruby’s run scoring spree. Moreover, 3 run outs proved to be a bit too many for the Ruby’s and they paid the price for it. Ruby’s could not put up a substantial score on the board and 82 was never going to be a threat in these pitches. After initial hiccups, couple of good partnerships put paid to Ruby’s hopes and the Diamond’s romped home with 5 wickets and 3.3 overs to spare.

I would gladly admit that the team that played better cricket on the particular day won and all credit to the Diamond’s for a commendable performance.
Looking forward to the next tournament with utmost eagerness.
Till then, Take Care and Goodbye!
