THE Technoline Warriors edged past Megamart Spam Boys Kings in the pick of the matches from the latest round of the Indian Club Zain Bahrain Premier League.
The Group A clash saw the Kings win the toss and elect to field, with Biju top-scoring with 25 in a competitive Warriors total of 45.
In response though, Ramil's 22 had the Kings on track for a successful chase but they were bowled all out with one ball to go in the innings and two runs short of the target.
In another Group A clash, the Indian Star Lions had a far more comfortable outing as they romped to a 47-run victory over the MCC Cobras.
It was an impressive total of 68 for five in the Lions' innings that did the damage and with the Cobras facing such a steep challenge, they collapsed for 21 all out.
The final match of the night was another entertaining Group A battle, as the Dr Mobile Al Kerlawi Tuskers' score of 43 for two proved good enough to ensure victory over the Club 7 Devils, who could only manage 38 all out in response.
Behbehani Brothers Badshahs continued their impressive start to the competition with another victory over the BMMI Karnataka Royals in the opening Group B encounter.
The Badshahs racked up 37 for five in their allotted six overs and ensured a six-run win by restricting the Royals to 31 in the same period.
The Indian Club Zain Bahrain Premier League continues tonight with Tecnoline Warriors taking on Bahrain Finance Company Eagles, the Behbehani Brothers Badshahs meeting Standard Chartered Bank Tigers and the Sun Gulf Chargers facing the Salmabad Challengers. The Club 7 Devils go up against the MCC Cobras while the Eagles will play their second match of the night against the Dr Mobile Al Keralawi Tuskers.
The seven-a-side softball tournament is based on the format used in the professional Indian Premier League, with 16 invitational teams from around the country competing for a total prize-pot of $1,000 (BD378).
