Anuj Bhargwaj, left arm chinaman of Ravinder Fagna CA further piled up misery with his four over spell. He finished with three wickets giving away just 8 runs.
Mohd Shanib with two wkts was the other bowler with reasonable success. Drone Kishore top scored 22 for RR Gym but it was his run out that started that deadly middle order collapse.
Chasing 59 in 40 overs should have been a cakewalk for Ravinder Fagna CA, but it was anything but that. Left arm spinner Parth Bhatia came up with an inspired spell of bowling. He picked up 3 wickets for just 8 runs in his seven overs resulting in the chasing side tottering at 44 for 5. However, the target was too small to begin with and their skipper Sameer Khan their at the crease amidst all the mayhem.
