The Confidence Booster

BCC Macche had lost all their five matches of NitinShirgurkar’s Belgaum Premier League by a huge margin and nothing different was expected from them when they locked horns with Belgaum Sports Club.

With 29 runs on the board and top three batsmen back to in the pavilion it looked like same old story for Macche. But after that ShashankHiremath and Bharat Gadekar stitched an incredible partnership of 83 to pump the score to 129 in 20 overs. The counter attack by the duo allowed the team to gather 42 runs in the last three overs. 

            The bowlers of Macche took inspiration from the batsmen and bowled their hearts out. Although, Macche lost the match, they gave a tremendous fight and the game was in balance till the 19th over. Throughout the match it looked like some different 11 players are fielding in the ground. 

            Skills and talent of players is always crucial for a team in Cricket. However, one thing which separates good teams from great ones is their confidence. And it takes only one inspired performance from someone to boost the confidence of the team.

            KapilDev’s 175 against Zimbabwe in 1983 world cup proved to be the turning point for the Indian team while Imran Khan’s inspired captaincy ignited the rather dull looking Pakistani team in the 1992 World Cup.

            With only a few games left and the doors of the knock-out stage closed, Macche has still a lot to play for in the tournament.   And the confidence they gained in this match will surely come in handy.     

            One thing for sure. Other teams now cannot afford to take Macche lightly because this team now has realized their potential.
