Though it was an away match, the fans packed the stadium wearing kerala jersey. Hard to believe the sights of fans being this crazy for their team. Out comes Panikkar, yes he's back into the side but after a good performance Ajay has been dropped to accommodate Panikkar, the problem of plenty is haunting kerala. Deciding to bat first Mizoram were unable to pick the line and length bowled by Moideen and Riaz, picking up 8 wickets between them. Captain Kotoki being the lone batsman who tried to offer some resistance and top scored by 18 runs with none of the other players crossing two digit mark.
Chasing 44 kerala lost Panikkar and John in the power play. Nayanar and Nair stuck together and ensured kerala won without any further hassles.
A must win game awaits for kerala against Uttarakhand, 21:00, 26-02-2019.
