Emerging Players Tournament was being held in Australia last week.. It consists of four teams from Australia(Australian Institute of Sports), South Africa (South Africa Emerging Players), NewZealand(New Zealand Emerging Players), India (India Emerging Players). It consists of One day and Twenty20 games.. And the two teams who topped the group charts after the group stages are over will be faced in the finals and the other two teams will be vying for the third spot.. After the group stages are over South Africa team topped the group charts with an unbeaten run of eight games.. India has a slightest of the margin of points to enter the finals… India has 17 points and Australia has 16 points.. Though India has one win ahead of Australia , Aussies gave India a good fight for a spot in the finals… Virat Kohli for India is in the finest of form scoring a century and two half centuries ahead of the finals… Peter Fulton is the top scorer for New Zealand , Rob Quiney is the leading run scorer for Aussies .. H G Kuhn is the leading run scorer for South Africa… And in the bowling Chennai Super Kings Find of 2009 Sudeep Tyagi is the leading wicket taker of the tournament…. In the final SA Vs India India lost the toss and are asked to bat first.. With Rahane the in form batsman and Murali Vijay the out of form batsman back in the hunt , the pressure is on Virat Kohli and Subramaniam Badrinath to take India further.. They both held together for 50 run partnership and soon India were 106 for the lost of half of the side back in the hunt leaving kohli who is exceptional with the bat…. Then Wriddiman Saha and Kohli took India past 250 run mark and with a little cameo from Mishra take India score to 288… Virat scored an all important century in the final… SA started their run chase briskly scoring at 10 runs an over… With scoreboard reading 54 in 5.4 overs India dint have any better plans in hand to stop the South Africans… Again it is Tyagi who provided the breakthrough for India with the all important wicket of the rampaging Rossoww.. Then SA middle order crumbles to the pressure against some tight bowling from the Indians.. And in the end India won the match and the Emerging Players Tournament.. Indians top the chart in both the bowling and batting departments…. Kohli and Tyagi are the future stars of India in the making.. SA is equally impressive and they deserve the medal and the tournament… NZ is the most disappointing team in the tournament… Aussies recorded the lowest score of the tournament scoring 44 against SA…
