Last week our team won the Intra-Ericsson cricket tournament. We set a target of 124 (15 overs), thanks to Vijay who made a brilliant 53 with 6 huge hits.
A match which was supposed to be a easy win for us at a time when they needed 18 runs of 6 balls. I was asked to bowl the last over keeping in mind the way I bowled the final over of the previous match giving just 3 when they needed around 15.
But the situation was not all the same. The first few balls were hit hard which cleared the boundaries and another controversial “NO” ball given by the umpire, when the batsman was caught, all added up and brought the match to a nail biting finish when the scoreboard finally showed 2 runs required of 1 ball. The batsman was with fresh blood, not like me, who plays cricket once in a year.
I prayed all gods I knew and bowled the last ball which exactly hit where I wanted for the previous balls to be hit and batsman completely missed it..
If I would have given those 2, I would have wont the title Aadu(Goat) of the match!!!
I couldn’t believe that we won and to be true I had never played such a match in my life before. We won all the 3 matches in the tournament…
