Match number 13 and the last match of the league for LCC. Equation was simple : win the match and ensure place in division 1 next year. Winning the toss, LCC decided to bat first with a clear goal in mind to build partnerships and this is exactly what Sagar Memane and Nandeep Soggi did with their 108 runs partnership. To add to this, quick fire innings from Sahil Bharti and Paygham Omari helped LCC register an above par score of 196/8.
SEPCC started their chase with little caution and ocassional aggression which was not enough for their required rate of around 10 per over. Early breakthrough from Nandeep Soggi hampered their chase even more. Some middle order partnerships from SEPC batsmen did look promising but were not enough as they were well challenged by LCC’s bowling attack, especially the medium pace from Gursewak Sandhu who bagged 4/15. Finally, SEPCC were bowled out at 148 and LCC won by a huge margin of 48 runs.
Nandeep Soggi for his all round performance of 53(31) runs and 2/20 wickets was declared the man of the match. With this victory LCC regained their well deserved position in division 1.
The star performer of the season for LCC, Sagar Memane, joined the 1000+ runs and 100+ wickets club of LCC. Congratulations Sagar Memane and Lords Cricket Club!
