CCL 4 Final: Karnataka Bulldozers retain title by beating Kerala Strikers by 36 runs
Karnataka Bulldozers won the 4th edition of the Celebrity Cricket league by 36 runs in the final against Kerala Strikers, thanks to Rajeevâ€™s superb unbeaten 110.
Batting first, the in-form Bulldozers smashed the Srikersâ€™ bowlers to all parts thanks to Rajeevâ€™s brilliant hundred. Rajeev was ably supported by Dhruv â€” the two batsmen have been a revelation throughout the tournament and lifted actor Sudeepâ€™s team to a massive 211.
Legendary actor Mohanlalâ€™s team struggled in the chase and lost wickets in regular intervals in the chase, chasing such a humongous score. When it seemed like a lost cause, Arjun Nandakumar gave the Srikers hope with some huge sixes. Arjun was out for a superb 78, trying to smash every delivery into the stands. Strikers finished at 175 for eight and it was purely down to Bulldozersâ€™ consistent batting throughout the tournament that helped them retain the CCL trophy. The fans came out in large numbers to support the movie stars and they would have surely got their money's worth in this final that saw many fours and sixes.
Karnataka Bulldozers 211 for 2 (Rajeev 110*, Dhruv 58*, Rahul 21; Nair 1 for 25) beat Kerala Strikers 175 for 8 (Nandakumar 78, Sleeba 29; Dhruv 3 for 22, Pradeep 2 for 29) by 36 runs.
