Mantri-KPL 2010 : Finals : Mangalore United reigns supreme

Finals: Bangalore Provident Rural vs Mangalore United at Bangalore on 29.09.10: Mangalore United won by 44 runs

The finals provided an anti climax to the tournament. Chasing a modest 113, Provident crashed to the lowest total of the tournament – 68 – leaving Mangalore United victors by 44 runs.

Mangalore United who opted to bat first after winning the toss posted 113 for 9 in 20 overs. Nidhuvan Kumar {20} and KK Nair {21} were the main contributors to the total. Nidhuvan Kumar and R Jonathan added 25 runs for the third wicket was the substance of Mangalore’s innings.

Three run outs late in the innings to step up the scoring rate did not help much in Mangalore’s innings,

What followed in the second half of the match was a complete disaster. It was a parade of batsmen walking back to the pavilion as the spin duo UB Patel {4 for 11} and KK Nair {4 for 13} mesmerized Provident.

Provident started well by putting on 32 runs for the first wicket, but the exit of opener MK Manjunath saw them losing the rest of the wickets for the addition of 36 runs. Manjunath {14} and VST Naidu {22} were the only two batsmen to reach double figures. VST Naidu saw his team mates returning to the pavilion, while he was stubborn at the other end. He departed the scene at the score of 59 and his wicket was the eighth wicket to fall in Provident’s innings. Nine runs later it was all over for the defending champions as they were shot out for 68.

Summarised scores : Mangalore United : 112 for 9 in 20.0 overs {Nidhuvan Kumar 20, KK Nair 21, A Jagan 2 for 21, AU Shetty 2 for 20} won against Bangalore Provident Rural : 68 all out in 16.1 overs {VST Naidu 22, UB Patel 4 for 11, KK Nair 4 for 13} by 44 runs

Skipper Ganesh Satish made 34 in 27 balls containing four fours and a six in a stay of 37 minutes at the crease. Though K Gowtham {18 in 10 balls with two fours and a six} and RR Bhatkal {26 not out in 12 balls with 12 balls with four fours and six} scored runs in a late order flourish, it was too late for Malnad Gladiators to put up a match-winning total. Sanjay Kumar and KC Avinash added 64 runs for the second wicket in 9.3 overs was another contributing factor for Malnad Gladiators’ total. AU Shetty with 2 for 18 was the most successful bowler for Provident.

Chasing 158 for a win, Provident openers – MK Manjunath and VST Naidu put on 62 runs for the first wicket and the victory was never in doubt for Provident. The first wicket partnership was consolidated by yet another useful stand of 47 runs for the fourth wicket between B Akhil and AA Joshi.

MK Manjunath {30 in 29 balls with two fours and two sixes}, VST Naidu {44 runs in 35 balls with six fours and one six} and skipper B Akhil {45 not out in 22 balls with four fours and three sixes} contributed to Provident’s comfortable win.

As many as three bowlers – K Gowtham {1 for 42}, SK Moinuddin {1 for 38} and RR Bhatkal {1 for 35} – conceded 35 plus runs, which did not help Gladiators’ cause.

RT Ponting would be playing his 25th test against India when he appears for Australia at Bangalore, the second test of the series. He would earn the distinction of becoming the first Australian cricketer to appear in 25 tests against India

VVS Laxman would be playing his 25th test when he appears at Mohali, the first test of the series. He would become the third Indian cricketer to appear in 25 or more tests against Australia. Others are SR Tendulkar {30} and R Dravid {27}. {Note – SR Tendulkar and R Dravid’s appearances include Mohali test}

VVS Laxman would go past two other Indian cricketers – GR Viswanath and DB Vengsarkar – who have played 24 tests against Australia

R Dravid needs two more innings for his 50 innings against Australia. If he plays those two innings, he would become the second Indian batsmen to play 50 plus innings against Australia. SR Tendulkar has played 55 innings prior to the start of the series.

AB Agarkar {08} and BS Chandrashekhar {06} are the other two Indian batsmen who have scored five or more ducks.

RT Ponting has captained Australia in nine tests against India prior to the start of this series. Mohali test would be his tenth test, he would equal the record held by RB Simpson, and SR Waugh who have captained Australia in ten tests against India RT Ponting would become the fourth captain to lead in ten or more tests against India.

He would become the third Indian batsman to play 30 plus tests against specific opposition. Others are – SM Gavaskar – 38 tests against England and GR Viswanath – 30 tests against England.

SR Tendulkar would become the first Indian cricketer to play 30 tests against Australia. He would become the 23rd Cricketer to play 30 or more tests against Australia. The break up of 22 cricketers read thus – 18 England cricketers and 04 West Indian cricketers.

Prior to the start of the series, V Sehwag has scored nine fifties against Australia {03 C plus 06 HC}. He needs one more fifty for his tenth fifty.

VVS Laxman has taken 29 catches against Australia and one more catch would give him an aggregate of 30 catches. He would then become the second Indian fieldsman to pouch 30 plus catches against Australia after R Dravid who has an aggregate of 44 catches prior to the start of the series.

RT Pontng has pouched 28 catches against India and one more catch would put him on par with ME Waugh who has 29 catches. Two more catches for Ponting would give him 30 catches and with it the Australian record for most catches by a fieldsman against India.

Prior to the start of the series, R Dravid has an aggregate of 196 catches and four more catches would make him the first fieldsman ever to pouch 200 catches in the annals of test cricket.

RT Ponting has taken 74 catches on away soil and one more catch would give his 75th catch. He then would become the fourth fieldsman who has an aggregate of 75 plus catches on away soil – R Dravid {104}, ME Waugh {84} and SP Fleming {77}

Prior to the start of the series, R Dravid and SR Tendukar have an aggregate of 5997 partnership runs. They need three more runs for 6000 partnership runs.

R Dravid and SR Tendulkar have 40 fifty plus runs partnerships between them and two more fifty plus partnerships would give them 42 fifty plus partnerships, Should they get them they would be on par with CG Greenidge-DL Haynes and ML Hayden-JL Langer pair who have 42 fifty plus runs partnerships

The other calendar years in which he has totalled 1000 runs are – 1000 runs in 1997, 1088 in 1999, 1003 in 2001, 1392 in 2002 and 1063 in 2008, He would go past ML Hayden of Australia, BL Lara of West Indies and RT Ponting of Australia who have scored 1000 plus runs in five calendar years

Mohali test would become the first test ever to witness rival batsmen batting at number three to have an aggregate of 9000 plus runs – RT Ponting of Australia {9519} and R Dravid of India {9065}.

R Dravid would be playing his 55th test batting at number three at home when he plays the test at Mohali. He would equal the record held by RT Ponting who has played 55 home tests. Dravid’s second test at Bangalore would give record 56 appearances at home while batting at number three.

Mohali test would be the 75th test for SR Tendulkar at home. He would become the fourth cricketer to appear in 75 home tests. Others are – SR Waugh {89}, AR Border {86} and RT Ponting {79}. He would become the first cricketer from any country other than Australia to appear in 75 home tests

Mohali test would be the 68th away test {including neutral tests} for RT Ponting. He would go past ME Waugh who has played 67 away tests and occupy the fourth place among the Australians who have appeared in most away tests – SR Waugh {79}, SK Warne {76}, AR Border {70} and RT Ponting {68}
