SoBo Supersonics’ winning streak finally came to an end when they clashed with the NaMo Bandra Blasters on Monday evening. Supersonics won each of their first three matches before going down to Bandra while defending their total of 151/8. No batsman stepped up and batted long for the Supersonics as they ended up with a below par total.

They will face the struggling Shivaji Park Lions team in their 5th match. The Shivaji Park team made it to the final of the previous edition but are yet to win a match this season. They ended up on the losing in all the three matches they played this year. One of the key reasons for their debacle has been their batting failure as they are failing to put on big totals.
