Finally, the Celebrity Cricket League for this year has come to
an end, where once again Karnataka Bulldozers lift
up the winning trophy. The team led by Sudeep got a terrific victory over
Kerala Strikers at the finals which
was held yesterday at Lal Babhadur Shastry Stadium, Hyderabad,
Karnataka Bulldozers started off very well and gave a huge
target of 212 runs to their opponents. But, unfortunately, the
Kerala Strikers could manage to score only 175 runs from 20 overs.
The main hit back for the strikers was that they lost their core
wickets initially, which indeed put the team under pressure.
Kerala Strikers won the toss and chose to field first. Karnataka
Bulldozers gave a huge target of 212 runs to them, which was indeed
a difficult score to catch up with after losing the prime wickets
like Kodiyeri, Rajeev Pillai, Rakendu Kumar and many others
initially. At last, Karnataka Bulldozers, who became the runner up
for the first two seasons has become the winners for the second
time. Mohanlal, along with Lizy

Strikers, had come to watch the finals.
