On Tuesday evening, a friendly cricket match was played at Zabeel Park between the students and staff of Manipal University Dubai. The staff team captained by Mr. Ahmed, won the toss and elected to bat. The student team, captained by Nigel Rodrigues restricted the staff team to 87 runs within the stipulated 20 overs.
The student team batted off 88 runs in just 13 overs to win the match. It cannot be said there is no tension in a match. However, the match played under floodlights was cordial and easy going as these are just the warm up matches for an upcoming tournament. More details as it happens on this blog.
