The Warriors looked in trouble as they lost their third wicket on the score of 53 after 7.4 overs.  The innings was held together by Nikin Jose and Abhinav Manohar, both of whom added 90 runs in 58 balls for the fourth wicket. Courtesy of their marvellous batting, the United reached a total of 171 after their allotted 20 overs.

The Warriors’ openers came out to chase and gave an electrifying start to their team as they scored some quick boundaries early on. They lost their first wicket on 27 after 2.5 overs in the form of Nitin Bhille. After losing his partner, the other opener Nihal Ullal continued to attack as he sent the ball twice into the stands.

After the fall of the second wicket, captain Karun Nair and Pawan Deshpande came together at the crease and made sure that there were no more hiccups in the chase going ahead.

They finished their innings on the score of 191 at the loss of six wickets with Chethan unbeaten on 105 off 55 balls.
