Welcome to CricBay 2015 Regular Season Finals

Dear CricBay,

It's that time of the year again. The culmination of  everything we have done and worked so hard for this whole season. The grand finale is here and it is time to celebrate the eight teams who have managed to stay alive in a hyper competitive and brutal of a RR2. 

Chennai, those perennial hot favorites have managed to break their semi-finals hoodo are going to appear in the Platinum finals for the first time. So Are the super exciting boys from Sahara. Incredible talent that is Sunil Dalal, the smartest Cricket brain of Sir. Singampalli, Pleasing to the eye batting style of their Captain Nandha, ever miserly Wilson bowling overs after overs and every one from that Chennai team will be a treat to watch.

Not much needs to be mentioned about Sahara.. They are by far one of the most exciting teams we have had in a while. Their supremely talented, fast and furious bowlers led by Tariq combined with batsmen with devil-may-care attitude lead by Badar Munir will be a perfect match for Chennai. We will probably get one of the finest Platinum finals. 

Immortals will play their FIFTH Gold finals and this time they will face talented Talons (second Gold finals and third CricBay final). With a bit of luck this could have a platinum game just to give you an idea of talent in both teams. Venkat and Anand with help from Subbu and Ronik can tear apart most CricBay teams on an average day. Immortals with their army of allrounders will be a perfect match for them Talons. Another exciting game on the cards.

Force 11 (who had to beat the mighty Extreme XI) will play their third CricBay finals and they will face Super over experts RCB in Silver finals. This game alone would be enough to attend the finals because entertainment is guaranteed when these bunch of talented cricketers are playing the winners-take-all game.

Alpha Lions will fight it out with Strikers for Bronze trophy.. Both are playing their first finals and a guaranteed thriller on the cards.

It goes without saying, 8 of the very best teams from their divisions have worked hard, focussed throughout a highly competetive season and stayed consistent and readhed their pinnacle.

Excited Yet?
