Mumbai, March 11: Bangalore Strikers registered their first-ever win in the inaugural Indian Street Premier League T10 tennis ball cricket tournament by beating Tiigers of Kolkata in the first Super Over of the competition at the Dadoji Kondadev stadium here on Monday.
Batting first in the Super Over, Bangalore Strikes scored 21 runs with Thomas Dias scoring 13 runs in 3 balls while Mansoor KL adding 8. In response, Munna Shaikh tried his best by hitting two sixes but could not take his team over the line as they were restricted to 13/2.
The victory also ensured that Bangalore Strikers still have a mathematical chance of making it to the knock-out stage while Tiigers of Kolkata remain in second spot with four points.

Earlier, Bangalore Strikers opted to bowl first and got a break through of the first legal delivery of the innings when Akash Gautam sent back opener Fardeen Kazi. Tiigers of Kolkata captain Prathamesh Pawar then launched a counter attack and scored 25 runs of 20 balls before Gautam came back to scalp two wickets and finished with figures of 3 for 5.
Tiigers of Kolkata continued to lose wickets at regular intervals thereafter and Ashiq Shamsu claimed three wickets for 21 runs to restrict the batting side to 86 for 9 in their stipulated 10 overs.
But Tiigers of Kolkata had been defending well in the competition and made things quite difficult for their opponent. Apart from Thomas Dias (27 of 22 balls), none of the other Bangalore Strikes’ batsmen could cut loose and the equation was down to 18 runs in the final over.
Left hander Mansoor KL did a fantastic job of scoring 16 of the first four balls but they went for glory with yet another big shot and was caught. Bangalore Strikers skipper Ankur Singh then kept his nerves to steal and single and taking the match to Super Over.
