The toss was won by the Mumbai Champs and the captain Astle chose to bat first. As the innings started, the opener Jadhav faltered a bit and lost his wicket.

The middle order batsmen could not do much but put in their best effort. From the lower order it was Khirid who managed to lend the required momentum to the team by scoring a fast 32 runs off 24 balls. Total score of the team was 160 runs. Hall from the Lions team obtained 4 important wickets from the Champs.
Faltering in the batting line up can be said to have caused the Lions this defeat. The highest scorer from the Lions team was Chetan Sharma with 23 runs. TP Singh scored 21 runs and three other players could make runs in double figures but were not able to cross the twenties mark. Captain Cairns scored just 6 runs. The team finished at the score of 125 runs giving a victory of 35 runs to the Mumbai Champs.
