Result: Bengals Won by 92 RunsReport by Bengals:
Bengals Hosted Anaheim @Buena Park on a bright and sunny day, temperature at mid 70s. After Winning the toss and opting to bat bengals were in trouble at 2 for 8 runs on the 3rd over and 4 for 43 on the 10th over. The ball kept low on an unpredictable pitch. A 60 run 5th wicket and a 66 run 6th wicket partnership helped bengals score a respectable total. Nadeem Bhai played a solid innings of 78 with class and style hitting 9 bondaries and 2 huge sixes. Raju bhai batted like he usually does openning his account with a HUGE SIX (at least a 90m) over mid wicket on the third ball and another one on the 5th ball he faced. Mahmud Bhai played a cruicial innings rotating the strike and taking bengals to 150 plus. The real cameo came from our #10 batsman Raihan who played some extra ordinary shots in his 19 off 8 balls with 3 fours and a six over long on to take bengals to 214.
Anaheim Came to bat with a required run rate of well over 5 which went up with every over thanks to tight bowling from Irtiajul and Raihan. They went to a defensive mode rather than a chasing one when shakeel took 3 wkts in his uninterrupted 8 over spell with 3 maidens giving away only 14 runs. Irtiajul came back strong in his 2nd spell and took a total of 3 wkts.
Good Luck Anaheim for the rest of the season and Well done Bengals.
