In  an exciting game played at the Blackhall Cricket Ground in Blackhall – the touring YTCA team lost a close match to Clevland CC. Batting first – YTCA could manage to score only 126 runs in 39 overs. Opener Bharath Srinivasan played a responsible knock of 47 and steadied the innings with Abrar Kazi who scored 30. There was a middle order collapse which then resulted in YTCA being all out with 6 overs to spare. T Wing took 3 wickets for 15 runs.

In reply – YTCA opened the bowling with the off spin of Sairaj Venkat who bowled  a brilliant spell of 1 for 15 off 9 overs. Cleveland CC kept losing wickets at regular intervals and at one stage it was 85 for 8 as the batsmen struggled against the leg spin of Vishakh Chandrasekhar who took 2 for 34 and the off spin of Aditya Mavuru who took 2 for 21. R Wood however batted well and anchored the innings. Despite a tight spell of bowling by Vaibhav Chandrasekhar who bowled 4 overs for only 10 runs and Ranjit Singh who took 1 for 9 in 2 overs- Cleveland managed to win the match by 2 wickets with 3 overs to spare.

It was an exciting finish to the UK tour for the YTCA Seniors.
