The fourth year of CCL - Celebrity Cricket League has already
kicked off. As we all were aware, the first match of Kerala
Strikers happened yesterday, 26th of January at Chinnaswamy
Stadium, Bangalore. They played against Telugu
Warriors, and won by 4 wickets against their opponents.
The match started off quite well with Kerala Strikers. Though
they wanted to bat fist, the toss went against them. In spite of
that, the bowlers gave an outstanding performance and managed to
curb the Telugu Warriors from hitting too hard on to the bat, and
stopped them from scoring good run rate.
Telugu Warriors manged to get a score of 142 runs from 20 overs.
The only disadvantage that Kerala Strikers faced was a bad injury
that the captain of the team, Rajeev Pillai had met with. He got a
sprain on his leg and this prevented him from being the opener,
when the batting came.
Now, though the starting was good, somewhere it went wrong with
the batting that gradually the run rate came down for the Kerala
Strikers. Telugu Warriors' bowler Aadharsh gave a good performance
indeed that put the Kerala Strikers into a tight match. It was a
spectacular moment for the Kerala team when the victory
Apart from Rajeev, Bineesh Kodiyeri, Rakhendhu and Suresh Nair
also batted well for the team. Mohanlal is the non-playing captain
of Kerala Strikers. Mythili and Bhavana are the brand ambassadors
of the team. Venkatesh is the captain of Telugu Warriors.
