CHENNAI: The last day of the league phase of the Elite Super Sixes indoor cricket tournament presented by Bathcaff and co-sponsored by Jineshwar Capitals and Infra Venture at Netzz Cricket, on the roof top of Citi Centre Mall, witnessed a mad scramble for the four playoffs slots as all teams were in with a shout before play began for the day. RYA Metro were the luckiest to make it through as their blazing start to the tournament, when they won six out of ten matches, proved extremely important as sneaked through by a point ahead of RCC Diva.
RCC Magnum, who had the consistent Kunal Khicha, in the running for player of the tournament, to thank for their three wins out of four matches on the last day, jumped up to third to make it to the playoffs.
At the top, the battle to finish No 1 went down to the wire, as both RCC Platinum and RYA Cosmo Elite pushed each all the way, before Platinum bagged the all-important bonus point on Thursday to finish first and earn the bragging rights.
The playoffs are scheduled to be held on Saturday.
