Ranathi, Samiullah flatten Garfield Cricketers

Malleswaram SC batsmen smash double hundreds to script a massive 378-run victory

Batting first, Malleswaram put on a massive 429 for two in 55 overs with Ranathi and Samiullah slamming a double ton each. Ranathi remained unconquered on 218 (152b, 27x4, 11x6) while Samiullah struck 202 (160b, 20x4, 4x6) in an unseparated third-wicket stand.

After the stupendous batting show, Ramesh tightened the stranglehold with a seven-wicket haul (7/59) as Garfield collapsed to 191 all out in 27.2 overs. Malleswaram scored 265 all out in 27.2 overs in their second essay, setting Garfield an improbable target of 503 from 30 overs. Prashanth picked up 5/46 while Ramesh chipped in with 2/11 to go with his seven wickets in the first innings and Garfield could manage only a pitiable 125 all out in 24.4 overs.

In the final, Malleswaram will take on Wilson Garden CC, a 65-run winner over Sri Jayachamarajenra CC.
