Game two

Meanwhile, the Bengal Warriors failed to take advantage of some tight bowling from Hit and Run, restricting their batting total to all out for 69 runs.

Hit and Run bowler Max Harkin cleaned up the Bengal Warriors' tail with three wickets for three runs from 1.1 overs.

Their fielding was on fire, achieving two run outs and a double play from a catch.

It was widely assumed Hit and Run would cruise to victory but this was not the case.

Bengal Warriors bowler Kazi Nazmul Haque took two wickets for 15 runs and troubled the batsmen with wrist spin variations.

Hit and Run chased down the target of 71 after losing 5 wickets along the way, and almost lost another wicket after a Warriors player took a catch but dropped the ball.

They won by three wickets inside 12 overs.
