GWU vs OSU,T-Bird vs Texas Tech,Auburn vs UF, GWU vs UHouston !

George Washington University vs Ohio State University Wednesday March 16, 2011.
Once again an early start meant dewy conditions, this time at Brian
Piccolo Park.  GWU won the toss and elected to bowl first.  Steady
innings at the top of the order gave OSU a good platform from which to
launch into the last ten overs, and launch they did, scoring at 6.8
runs an over in the final ten. 
Two wickets in his last over, V.Khatri put a dampener on the end of the OSU’s innings ending with
figures of twenty seven for four.  The run chase for GWU started
superbly with the opening partnership taking them all the way to 88.
The run chase came down to the last ball and with the final single GWU
got over the line.  GWU win by 5 wickets.

Thunderbird vs Texas Tech Wednesday
Thunderbird batting first made it to 108 for 9 losing wickets at
regular intervals.  No batsman lasted long and the high score was 16.
Texas too had a sluggish innings, but they made the runs with 2 overs
to spare.  N Shah was a highlight for the innings when he top scored
with 38 from 15 balls, including 4 sixes!  Texas win by 4 Wickets.

Auburn University vs University of Florida
A wicket in the second over gave UF a rocky start and no batsman
looked settled on a pitch that kept low.  The only score of note, on
their way to a total of 100, was S. Pohekan who blazed 4 sixes in his
total of 28.  With a deceptively small score to chase, AU seemed
confident, but a wicket on the fourth ball was an unwelcome surprise.
The AU ship was steadied by N. Thaiagarajan who scored a majestic 56
(4 fours and 2 sixes) to bring them home for the win, in the last
over. AU win by 7 wickets.

George Washington University vs University of Houston
In an almost a reverse innings, UH scored at a belligerent 8.4 runs an
over, until they were suddenly halted by a small collapse of 5
wickets.  Top scores from I. Ahmed of 40 and S. Abbasi of 30
respectively set the target at a competitive 147.  GWU, coming off a
win in the morning, could not find their feet in the batting and were
all out for 102.  A real treat came from A. Nandra who scored an
upbeat 51, in the dying stages of the match.  UH win by 36 runs.
