Match Report - T20 vs Malmö CC
2023-05-21 07:28

Stockholm CC lost their 3rd match T20 of the season in Allsvenskan against Malmö CC by 23 runs. 

I, as the captain of Stockholm CC, have mixed emotions as I pen down this match report. It was a challenging encounter against Malmö CC 1st XI in the T20-Allsvenskan tournament. Unfortunately, we fell short in our pursuit of victory, losing the match by 23 runs.


After winning the toss, we elected to bowl first, confident in our ability to restrict the oppositions batting lineup. The game started with promise as we managed to dismiss their opener, Bilal Zaigham, early on, thanks to a brilliant catch by Ashwin David A off the bowling of Paul M. The pressure was on, and our bowlers continued to apply it effectively.


However, Sunny Sharma and Hammad Rafiq, the backbone of the Malmö CC batting order, formed a formidable partnership. Despite our best efforts, they managed to accumulate runs steadily. Our bowlers battled hard, but Hammad Rafiqs exceptional batting display, including some impressive boundaries, proved to be the turning point. He was eventually dismissed, caught by Ashwin David A off Paul Ms delivery, after scoring a crucial 29 runs.

Nikhil Mathur and Qaiser Munir also made significant contributions to Malmö CCs total.


Although we managed to take regular wickets, their batsmens aggressive strokeplay pushed their score to 167 runs. Ashwin David A was the pick of our bowlers, claiming three wickets with his crafty variations.


In pursuit of the target, we had a shaky start, losing the wickets of Abhishek Mathur and Ankit Tiwari early on. Our middle-order batsmen, Vinod Chalindra and Ashwin Amalraj, showed resilience and determination, steadying the ship. However, they couldnt convert their starts into substantial scores, and we lost wickets at crucial junctures.


Malmö CCs bowling attack posed a stern challenge, consistently applying pressure on our batsmen. Musadaq Mubarak and Hammad Rafiq displayed exceptional bowling skills, picking up crucial wickets. Our batting line-up struggled to build partnerships, resulting in a disappointing total of 144 runs. Qaiser Munir was the standout bowler for Malmö CC, taking three wickets and causing significant damage to our innings.


Despite the loss, I take pride in the fighting spirit shown by our team. Our bowlers put up a commendable effort to contain Malmö CCs batting powerhouse, and our batsmen displayed glimpses of brilliance. However, we must address the areas that require improvement to perform better in the upcoming matches.


Congratulations to Hammad Rafiq for his outstanding performance, earning him the well-deserved Man of the Match award. We will regroup as a team, learn from this experience, and come back stronger in the next match. The T20-Allsvenskan tournament has just begun, and we are determined to bounce back and make our mark.


Stockholm CC remains determined and focused, ready to take on future challenges with renewed energy and vigor.
