Pavan show goes in vain; Friends win

Pavan’s five-wicket haul failed to inspire Dolphin Cricketers as they stuttered to a 30-run loss at the hands of Friends XI Cricket, Doddaballapura in a low-scoring KSCA Group I, Division IV tie (Super League) for the Metro Shield.

Pavan scalped five wickets conceding a mere 11 runs to bundle Friends XI for a meagre 121. Dolphin Cricketers, however, found that total too much to handle as they were swept away for a paltry 91 in 28.3 overs.
