In the first tour match on August 4th, the Perivale CC did not take CCA U-17 as seriously as they should have.  In addition to overcoming a nine-hour jet lag, CCA inflicted a massive blow on their underprepared opponents.

After early setbacks, CCA recovered nicely to post 240 for 7 in 40 overs.  Vibhav Altekar scored 77 and Rohan Khasgiwala scored 50 not out.  But for Manraj Rattan, Perivale CC's bowling was unthreatening.

Anirudh Srinivas (3 for 17 in 8 overs) and Akhil Ghirnikar (6 for 10 in 8 overs) bowled 16 overs on the trot and reduced them to 33 for 9 in that period. Rutvij Bhise took the honors of closing out their innings for 38 to leave the CCA victors by a mindboggling margin of 202 runs.

CCA U-17 240-7 (40 overs) defeated Perivale Cricket Club 38-10 (Akhil Ghirnikar 6-10) by 202 runs.
