Cricket Fever is on....Pearson vs Walter Kluwer Health

This time we played with Walter Kluwer Health on Saturday 3rd December 2009. It was a perfect morning for cricket both teams arrived at the venue at 9.00 am in the morning we warmed up while ground staff were still rolling the pitch .We asked Abhishek Shukla to join the Walter’s captain for the toss, the call was right . Looking at the early morning conditions we decided to field and started our attack with Abhishek and Binit. Both of them bowled pretty well and restricted the scoring to almost 5 runs per over .We rotated the bowling with myself Amit, Kamal, Nikhil and Rohit, We took wickets at regular intervals but the middle order batsmen were good and scored some good runs .Finally they scored 170/9 in allotted 25 overs . It was a challenging target.


After a brief snacks session we started our innings. I was joined by Bharat Rana as opening pair and braved through some very good seam bowling . They tried almost every bowler and almost every tactics including short and body line stuff but couldn’t break the opening partnership. Myself and Bharat had 100 runs plus opening partnership and set the tone for rest of the players to come in and finish off, which Rohit Chopra did in style with blazing 44 runs . We won the match with by 7 wickets and 2 overs still to be bowled.


My congratulations to the Pearson team who braved the fog and 10 degree temperature to come to the ground and play with full spirit and enthusiasm.
