Chicago Hurricanes vs Ghicago Phantoms;

Chicago Hurricanes won the game by 65 runs Chicago IL: Hurricanes lead by Pruthvish Patel opened their season against Chicago Phantoms who came into this game with a huge win from their previous matchup with Destroyers. The Hurricanes won the toss and decided to bat first. The decision seemed like a good idea since some of the key players on the team did not show up for the opening. Salman Ahmed and Dhairya Mistry opened the innings. Salman who is known to open on mostly all the teams that he has played on could not hold his end for more than 4 balls. Jasim Sajjad managed to get another wicket right after by taking Sargam Patel for a duck. Samir Chaudhari sunk his teeth into the attack when he took out the left hander Jay Patel for a duck soon after. Dhairya continued on his crusade with very little help from Jash Patel who succumbed to Jasim as well. Ravi Shah who came in next, struck it out for a fifty six run partnership. This gave Dhairya the stand he was looking for until his next partner Neel came in who actually watched Dhairya score fifty runs from the non-striker’s end. […]
