Both matches between Indo-Bulgarian CC and BSCU – MU Plovdiv turned out to be high-scoring thrillers that ended in a win for the former. Leaders INB remain unbeaten in the tournament.
In the first game, despite a valiant effort from Sulaiman Ali, who smashed a 38-ball 73, PLO ended up falling agonisingly short of the target by three runs.
Agagyul Ahmadhel slammed three sixes off six deliveries to take INB to a very formidable total, also helped by skipper Prakash Mishra’s innings. Saim Hussain tried to force the issue for PLO during the run-chase, but an all-round disciplined bowling performance led by Deep Singh helped INB secure yet another win.
An unbeaten 25-ball 32 from Akshay Harikumar went in vain as Mayank Singh picked up two wickets and helped Academic - MU Sofia to their fifth win in succession.
In the last match of the day, PLE batted first but once again the lack of quick-fire runs proved to be an issue. Albin Jacob was the pick of the bowlers for MUS. The run-chase was guided by Firas Hussain, who retired hurt after a 28-ball 43. Huzaif Yousuf also slammed 20 runs in 11 deliveries to take MUS to their sixth straight win.
