"GO STATE...GO STATE","MAROON...WHITE","GO DAWGS"...CRICKET...OUR PASSION NEVER CEASES! These were the screams resounding in the entire field when the captain of MSUCC was handed over the esteemed Vanderbilt University Cricket Trophy 2009. The road to final involved defeating University of Memphis, Auburn University and Jackson State University in the leagues and the semi final.
The exciting tour began with a game against University of Memphis. They were restricted to a score of 31 off 15 overs.This game showcased excellent bowling by the MSUCC bowlers with each bowler getting atleast a wicket. A wonderful bowling performance by Chinni Yalamanchili, earned him the” Man of the Match” for this game.
The second league match was against QPCC. The score to win for MSUCC was 80 and inspite of trying they could only make 64 off the 15 overs. This defeat led to a “do or die” game against Auburn University. A motivated talk by Vinod Rajan served as an inspiration for the team to perform their best in the remaining games.
The decider game for a spot in the semi finals was even more prestigious to win as Auburn had recently won the Bulldawg Championship Trophy 2009 held at MSU. The MSUCC team redeemed itself with a thrilling ball to ball win by chasing a score of 71. A crucial partnership between Sudhir Koduri and Ashish Jannela was the backbone of the game. Ashish was awarded the “Man of the Match” for his admirable captain’s knock.
With its entry into the semi finals, the MSUCC team was pumped up for its game against Jackson State University. Winning the toss, the team set up a score of 90 off 15 overs. The burden was onto the bowlers to restrict the chasing team. The last over was bowled by Vinod Rajan and the opponent team required 7 runs to win. Two wickets and three dot balls led to a nail biting victory by 2 runs for MSUCC. Hemanth Kalluri with an outstanding batting performance was awarded ” Man of the Match”.
The final was against University of Memphis. With already defeating them in the first league match, the team was now confident to win the tournament.The team decided to bat first after winning the toss. A pivotal partnership between Vinod Rajan and Rajat Mehrotra contributed towards setting up a target of 83. A five wicket haul by Hemanth Kalluri was instrumental in defeating the opponent team. Vinod Rajan earned “Man of the Match” for his phenomenal batting and bowling.
The overall impressive performance by MSUCC team would not have been possible without its rest of the players (the wicket keeper Narendra Rongali; the bowlers Abhinav Agrawal and Piyush Porwal; and the fielders Subbu, RamMohan Reddi, Rakesh Nalla, Nagendra Karuturi and Ankit Arya).

Defending a total of 72 runs, which, given the day's playing conditions was not as easy as it may be assumed, MSUCC bowlers began their proceedings under immense pressure. Captain Mouthgalya bowled a fiery spell taking 4 wickets missing out on a hat-trick in his third over. RamMohan bowled an excellent spell, missing out on a hat-trick, taking three crucial wickets that put the UAT batsmen further in the back seat. Vice-Captain Hamanth Kalluri took 1 wicket. The game went into a nail-biting finish when the visiting team had to score 15 runs in the last 2 overs of their innings with 2 wickets in hand. MSUCC bowlers displayed courage and discipline as they pulled off a thriller finish, containing the batsmen from scoring the runs they needed badly. The UAT batsmen stood there, looking puzzled, as they realized they were still short of their target by 7 runs when their innings ended. In the end, it was MSUCC which emerged a deserving winner of this cracker of a match which had the final result uncertain until the last moment. With this 7-run victory over UAT, which happens to be the second victory against UAT in the past 8 months, MSUCC continues on its winning streak which began more than a year ago.

MSU Cricket Club Team played University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa on September 6th on their turf and won the 16-over match convincingly. MSUCC team captain Mouthgalya won the toss and elected to bowl. Alabama batsmen could hardly connect their bats with the ball and all they could manage was a paltry 48. MSUCC bowlers dominated the game again as the opponents were all out for 48. The pitch was damp due to rain and that forced us to concede some extras. But it did not hurt us badly because Alabama wickets were falling at regular intervals.Our batting was good except for a couple of quick wickets that fell in the beginning. Debutant opener Archit played a wonderful innings cleanly striking the ball even as it was cutting unpredictably on the damp pitch. When we were 5 wickets down our captain Mouthgalya stepped in to finish the game along with Vinod in the 12th over of the innings. In the end, it was MSU Cricket Club winning the match convincingly. It is to be noted that MSUCC is maintaining a winning rate of over 86% since its founding in 2002 and is remaining unbeaten since March, 2008. Go Dawgs!!!

The MSUCC team maintained their perfect home and away record against the Crimson tide. Once again, the UAT team were beaten by a huge margin. The batting onslaught led by Phani, Nanda and Alok blasted the crimson tide attack to all corners of their home ground. Phani has been awarded for his fantastic batting performance (39 runs) with a cash prize of $40.00 by MSUCC. Then our trusted quartet of bowlers kept taking wickets at regular intervals with both Kotesh and Prabhu doing a "two" trick.
