Batting first, Gopalapuram could manage only 136 runs courtesy Parthiban Jayaraman’s (5/39) five-wicket haul. Defending a low total, Gopalapuram’s left-arm spinner Nirmal wreaked havoc, scalping seven to skittle out Dorairaj Memorial for a paltry 120. In another duel, M Vetrivel (116 not out) smashed an unbeaten century to guide Eagle Cricket Club to a three-wicket success over Egmore Club.
