Nikhil Mulgi removed their opener in his second over and from other end new player Nilesh Lacmane removed their other batsman. Then Imran Mohammed and Ramesh Magan from both end took charge as they both claimed 3 wicket a piece to leave Lankians 75/8 but some relaxed fielding and sloppy bowling meant Lankians only needed further 30 runs in 7 overs but a superb catch by Imran at short mid-wicket ended their innings as Friends United registered their first win in Division 2.
