Post Chatterjee's wicket, Aamir Gani trapped Kaif Ahmed in front and Adamas' bowlers were looking 

to bundle them out below a hundred. However, a few contributions from the lower-order batters 

took their score to over a hundred.  

Saksham returned with two wickets, and Malda were eventually bundled out for 122.  

During the chase, tough times continued for Adamas' openers as Shakir Habib Gandhi returned for 

four. Captain Mukesh Kumar was too hot to handle with the new ball and took two wickets without 

even giving away any runs.

could not get going and after Pramod Chandila's (18) unfortunate stumping, it became tougher for 

the lower order to keep up with the asking rate.
