Defending champions Sorath Lions will take on the Halar Heroes in the ninth match of the tournament on June 8 at The Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
After a substandard start, Lions are placed third in the points table, winning only one out of their three matches. Heroes have found a spot at fourth for themselves by winning and losing one each in their two encounters.
In a low-scoring encounter, Gohilwad Gladiators defeated the Lions by three wickets. Batting first, the top three batters of the Lions returned to the pavilion early. Shaurya Sanandia picked up Chirag Pathak by a run out. He was followed by Sidhant Rana who gave a simple catch into the hands of Vishvaraj Jadeja.
At the end of the first five overs, the score stood at 31 for the loss of 3. The 41-run partnership of captain Chirag Jani and Rishi Patel wasn’t really fruitful since the team was unable to maximise it. The Gohilwad’s disciplined bowling united allowed them to post only 110 for the loss of 9 wickets at the end of the first innings.
In the chase, the Sorath bowlers did try and make the Gladiators struggle up until the last over but unfortunately, there was too little on the scoreboard to protect.
Halar Heroes are having a rollercoaster ride in the tournament. They are the team that has registered the highest total of 197-3 in this year’s edition. They won their last game against the Kutch Warriors comprehensively by 43 runs.
