Put into bowling first, TECO Maritime did failry well but conceded 49 runs in a tight 6 overs game. Some hard hitting from Tamil Thalaivas skipper & openers Ramesh Kalimuthu (20 of 13) and Vasu Selvam (21 of 13) entertained the crowds with long sixes and fours. Chasing 50 to win, TECO had a diastrous start loosing their top 6 batsman for a poultry score of 23 runs in 4 overs. Saving the best for the last, two young chaps and the last pair from TECO Maritime - Ila Maran (18 of 7) and Nikil Garg (11 of 5) took TECO Maritime to the finishing line with some hard hitting sixes and fours, winning comfortably with 2 balls to spare.
