Heroes starts with a win

HYDERABAD: Hyderabad Heroes won its opening Indian Cricket League match against Lahore Badshahs by 18 runs after a power blackout forced use of the V. Jayadevan (VJD) method at the Lal Bahadur Stadium here on Friday. One floodlight tower failed to function till the verdict came, about a quarter of an hour to midnight.

The visiting side did well to contain Heroes in the slog overs, but was slapped a six-run penalty for slow over-rate.

The scores: Hyderabad Heroes 165 for six in 20 overs (Ambati Rayudu 58, Jimmy Maher 41) bt Lahore Badshahs 30 for two in six overs (by VJD method). — A. Joseph Antony
