Akkil Srinaath, who was looking good for Kovai with 35 off 20 balls, gets out in a bizarre way as he steps on the stumps trying to play a shot off the back foot. Unfortunate way to get out.

Kovai 108/5 after 16 overs
...
While we were away, Kovai lost the wicket of Pradosh Ranjan Paul heaply and put themselves under a lot of pressure. The asking rate is over 10 and the batsmen at the crease, Antony Dhas and Akkil Srinaath are hitting some lusty blows.

Kovai 92/3 after 12 overs



...
A successful over from Athisayaraj as he concedes just five runs and takes the wicket of Abhinav Mukund. 

Kovai 51/2 after 8 overs
...
In a bid to increase the scoring rate, Abhinav Mukund perishes offering S Anand a simple catch at mid-off. It looks like the pressure has got to the batsman leading to his dismissal. 

Abhinav Mukund c S Anand b Athisayaraj Davidson 21 (23)
...
Kovai batsmen are struggling to get a move on here as they are reeling at 46/1 after 7 overs on a wicket that is decent for batting. Abhinav should look to cash in on the bowling. Else, things will get tougher for Kovai.

R Sai Kishore strikes in his first over. Shahrukh Khan tried to slog sweep the spinner, managed to get a top edge and the bowler completed a fairly difficult catch.

LYCA KOVAI KINGS NEED 183 RUNS TO WIN.
...
Tuti were looking good to register a total in excess of 200 when Kaushik Gandhi, S Dinesh and Akshay Srinivasan were batting. They were cruising at 141/2 after 14 overs. But, Kovai bowlers pulled things back and restricted them for just 182/7 in 20 overs. T Natarajan, S Ajith Ram and MP Rajesh were the pick of the bowlers for Kovai as they picked up two wickets apiece while S Dinesh was the stand-out performer with the bat for Tuti with 59 off 42 balls and was well support by Akshay, who scored a 21-ball 45. 
...
R Sathish, in a bid to take his team closer to 200, holes out to the deep mid-wicket fielder.

And Nattu strikes! Malolan goes for a wild swing and gets the outside edge. Wicketkeeper R Rohith completes an easy catch.

...
Vignesh kept it nice and simple and only conceded five runs.

Tuti 146/3 after 15 overs
...
K Vignesh had kept it simple in his last over of the match and was rewarded with a wicket. A bit of extra bounce and edged back to the keeper.

S Dinesh c Rohith b Vignesh 59 (42)
...
Shahrukh Khan, who conceded 12 runs in his first over, bowled very short and the batsmen, especially Srinivasan, made full use of it. A six off the second, two consecutive fours and another six on the fifth delivery saw Tuti add 22 runs from this one. They're on a roll!

Tuti 141/2 after 14 overs
...
Antony Dhas started well with a dot, a wide and two singles but the next three balls cost him ten runs.

Tuti 106/2 after 12 overs.

Tuti 102/2 after 11 overs
...
A brilliant over by Ajith Ram as he takes the wicket of Anand and concedes just two runs off it.

...
After conceding a huge six to S Dinesh, MP Rajesh comes back strongly to send Kaushik Gandhi back to the pavilion. Still nine runs came off the over. 

Tuti 89/1 after 9 overs
...
MP Rajesh finally strikes! Kaushik Gandhi's luck finally runs out as he top edges one straight back to the bowler who hardly moved to complete the catch. 

Tuti c and b MP Rajesh 43 (25)
...
Pradosh Ranjan Paul drops a sitter to give a life to Kaushik Gandhi, who was batting on 42. You won't get an easier catch than that. Skipper Abhinav cannot believe what he just witnessed. To add on to the misery, Dinesh smashes Ajith Ram for a huge six off the very next ball.

Tuti 80/0 after 8 overs
...
Tuti keep applying pressure on the Kovai bowlers as Dinesh and Kaushik take 12 runs off Antony Dhas' first over.

Tuti 20/0 after 3 overs
...
Kaushik Gandhi started the over with a brilliant flick off his legs before he offered Abhinav Mukund a tough catch. Abhinav, at covers, dived full stretch and had the ball kissing his hands. Calling it a dropped chance will be harsh on the fielder. The first over from T Natarajan conceded seven runs. 

Tuti 11/ after 2 overs
...
Yet again, K Vignesh bowls a brilliant over to begin the innings. He was on target right from the word go and kept things tight. Just three came off it.
