JCC won the toss and inserted the opposition in. The bowlers responded well and SSCC were at one stage reeling at 109 for seven. However, SSCC recovered through Suresh ( 47, 4 fours ) and Furkhan 27 ( 3 fours ) to reach a respectable 224 all out in 55.1 overs. S R Deepu, R X Muralidhar and Mrunmay Das picked up two wickets each to share the bowling honours.
