Ivan Slams First Century Of The Mini World Cup
The New York cricket XI is comprised of hardball players with only a few of them having some sort of experience in softball cricket and playing against a team with such talent as United Stars, they were really in for a challenge. United Stars made a few changes to their batting line-up because the mini-world cup is considered to be the 20/20 competition of softball cricket so of course a more attacking batting line is needed. The stroke playing right handed, Ravin Ivan and the attacking lefthander, Ravi Balli was sent to the crease to open the batting.
In the first over of the game, United Stars found themselves in some early trouble with Balli caught behind without scoring, followed by Vicky “Bolo” Dhanraj in the second over for one, C. Ramdhanny in the third over for one and Krishna Singh for four in the fifth over. Ivan was then joined by skipper Bobby Pahalad who seems to be getting in the habit of picking up the pieces when his team is in trouble. With 4 wickets gone for a mere 42 runs, Bobby and Ivan started smashing the ball to all parts of the park scoring at a fast pace. They both continued confidently to the 10th over taking the score to 85 runs.
The first over
after the break, Bobby continued to display his aggressive batting
skills, scoring 25 runs off the over. He added another half century
to his name before being caught on the midwicket boundary for 57 runs
off the bowling of Derek Edwin. Ivan and Bobby added a massive partnership
of 107 runs to help their team recover from an early batting collapse.
