After choosing to bat, 777 lost opener Gaurav in the very first over bowled by Seychelles international paceman Rajeev for four runs. That was the start of a top-order collapse as Arun, captain Krishna Naidoo and Alam were also back in the pavilion in a short time.

Then Suranga joined opener Nataraj and did the rescue work for 777 and added 35 useful runs. Nataraj scored 20 runs before Arctic Turn ran him out.

From there, Suranga carried 777’s innings on his shoulders, scoring run a ball 40 runs with All-rounder Surangathe help of five boundaries and two sixes before he was bowled by Pandey. Govind went through 777’s middle order by taking 3 wickets, and a late flourish from Parthibhan took 777’s score to 97. Parthibhan was bowled by Hari for 14 runs.

In reply, Arctic Turn lost Vijesh’s wicket for four runs as he was bowled by Arun in his first over.
