In a quarter-final encounter between Zanskar and Udaigiri , the experience of the inter –IIT laden Zanskar proved to be too much to handle for the young Udaigiri side. Udaigiri won the toss and elected to bowl first. Zanskar looked on the top right from the word go and hammered the bowlers on will in the first 6 overs.
The opening duo of Gautam and Devesh absolutely murdered the bowlers taking the score to 70 odd in the 9th over. Udaigiri came back and the spinners managed to put some break on the run flow and reduced them to 96-6 in 14 overs. But, Zanskar kept their composure and managed to reach a above par score of 146-7. Shafi was the wrecker in chief with a 5 wicket haul.
Udaigiri’s reply was rather dull and they kept loosing wickets almost every over.The spin dominated attack of Zanskar tightened the screws on the relatively inexperienced side and finally bundled them out for a meager 88. Zanskar made a mockery of the Udaigiri batting line up and secured their semi-final berth with ease!!
