Panchkula:

A fine bowling spell by New Zealand pacer Daryl Tuffey (3/15) helped Chandigarh Lions register a 34-run win over Delhi Giants in the sixth match of the ICL's Twenty20 tournament on Saturday.

Chasing 154 for a win, Giants were bundled out for 119 in the penultimate over. They lost their openers DA Gunawardene (5) and Monish Mishra (6) cheaply, with the latter becoming Tuffey's first victim.

The Giants's misery was compounded by the fact that they lost three of their batsmen to run outs, including skipper Marvan Atapattu, who was well set on 29.

After the skipper's fall, Abhinav Bali (32) batted with confidence and appeared to have taken the attack to the opposition, but once he got out with scorecard reading 88 for 6, the tail packed up quickly.

Earlier, Matthew Elliot (35) and TP Singh (39) helped the Lions set a decent target for the Giants after electing to bat. Opener Lou Vincent (20) and middle-order batsman Chetan Sharma (21) also made useful contributions to the winning team total.
