Match Report Indus I Playoff (Semi Final) vs Tracy United

by Satish G.
 This is one of the most unbelievable wins in my cricketing life.  I couldn't sleep for 2 days before this match.....and was in disbelief at the end of 30 overs of our innings....... BUT Neel Bhai.....you were simply unplayable(crucial partnership with Koka with the bat and the opening bowling that Tracy were privileged to face you).....Kalyan.....you were the man of the entire match(36 not out and an opening spell that will be part of Indus folklore). Take a bow Neel bhai and Kalyan, for the opening spell.....I wish we recorded our opening bowling spell....would've served as an inspiration for all current and future Indusites and as a lesson in fast bowling(especially when defending a small total).....Terrific display by our team.....Shashi....I salute your superb captaincy.....your field changes for the crucial opening wicket that set the stage for the match and Himmy's dismissal and your captaincy in general for the whole year. I am not even sure if I am writing all the events in order in this email.....but I believe this performance so reflects our spirit.
Just to be part of this historic win is an honor....salute all my awesome team mates.....Pravin B who batted so beautifully and fluently when everybody looked to be struggling against Tracy's bowling(Not a single wrong shot till he got out and fearless keeping as usual).......Koka whose catching was so close to perfection(except maybe Mark Waugh and other greats).....This team is never short of miracles.....full on confidence, belief and attitude....I wish Rakesh saw the match and wrote this match report....Sunny bhai and Praful whose sheer presence ensured we won the match and kept the record intact (Indus never lost a match when Sunny bhai or Praful played)......Preetam bhai and Viji.......you make things happen....you simply rock......Koka(you are the heart and soul of Indus).....Barry(there is no player as talented as you in our team....make statements with the bat in future....you can easily do it).

Awesome support from Ramesh bhai and family, Srini and family, Neel bhai and family including a whole group of neighbours, Subrat, Arvind, Kethi, Prem(awesome umpiring ;) and as usual super cool bidu.

All said and done,.........Job only half done....let's win some silverware for our club.....we have to WIN this year.....this is a once in a year opportunity....something that was possible because of hard work all through the year.
1.2.3. GO INDUS!!!
