CHENNAI: The second edition of the Elite Super Sixes, sponsored by Bathcaff and powered by The New Indian Express, got off to a rousing start at Citi Centre on Thursday as seven of the eight participating teams were seen in action.
Three matches were won chasing, while three were won batting first, as the teams gradually got used to the format and adapted to the indoor pitch. In a fitting opener, the winners and runners-up of last season, RCC Platinum and RCC Magnum, kicked-off the event, with the holders winning both the opening encounters.
The other big gainer was RYA Cosmo Elite, which also won two matches to grab the joint early in the table. The 10-day cricket tournament is being played on a league basis, with the top four teams at the end of the league phase progressing to an IPL-styled qualifier and eliminator.
