Senthil earlier pointed out to me that Sajiv has a group of 6, while he has a group of 4, so the two teams can be based around the two groups. As this is a public holiday game, I was ok with that. Senthil can be captain of his group. However, as Sajiv's group are new or relatively new, the player with the most number of games in the current 6 month period can be captain. That would be Raj Singh, with 32 games. Sajiv was concerned that his team would have too many defenders, but if the new players on his team are defenders, we have too many defenders all round, so both teams will have a surplus of defenders!
Whites and reds traded goals to 2-2. Reds then stormed ahead 6-2 with Pondy making a nuisance of himself up top harassing whites’ defenders constantly.
Whites then made a comeback all the way to 6-6 with some all round inspirational play. Both teams pressed for a breakthrough which eventually to the Reds who scored 4 in the last 10 mins for a bloated scoreline.
