Ladies and gentlemen, Welcome to the post match report of the first of the three ODIs between the CFAI and VP at the Thakur College stadium on Dec 3,Sunday. It was a full house today with almost 3500 turning up for the much-awaited match up.

Without much ado, lets get to the action. VP had predecided on a very unconvetional batting order with FSA and Asset Valuation (AV+PF) opening the innings followed by Ethics,Quant in the middle and Eco bringing up the tail.

Since it was home ground, VP had a slight advantage over others and rightfully got cracking in the first innings with FSA and AV completing in record time(1.5 hrs). Then came the middle order. Ethics was always going to be tricky and was on a tricky wicket from the word go.Finally after wasting much time in the initial deliveries, panic set in and started hitting blindly (a la Sehwag).
Then came an unanticipated respite in the form of Quant.It played above expectations and was completed in normal time. Eco lived up to its tailender reputation by hitting almost all deliveries blindly.All in all the first session, the performance was a little above expectations.

The unexpected performance in the first innings gave rise to renewed fears of a fightback by the CFAI in the noon session. And truly, compared to the first, the 2nd session was a disaster. Except FSA and to some extent AV, no player could read the pitch correctly and the middle order collapsed like a pack of cards.The tailender didn’t even give a glimpse of a fightback.The less said the better about the second session.

So, the final decision rests in the hands of the Third Umpire(CFAI) . Fingers Crossed (both hands and feet).Let’s hope the first session performance gets the team through.
