EYCL season kicked off with great start. Neither the rain the day before nor the gusty winds the day of the game could hold the teams to come out and showcase their talents.
Numbers speak for the way the games progressed. 3 scores of 50+, and 7 innings of 25+ showed the batting brilliance. 5, 4,and 3 wicket hauls proved that even bowlers had their day on the field.
How coincidental it is that, two different teams in the opening games batting first setting up the same target for chasing teams (207 in 50 overs).
