The heroics of Arjun Vinod and Lalit Dubey and a team effort enabled the Stars to reach the semi-finals of the CSPL league championship.

The Stars beat last year champions Power Wintherthur by 34 runs to book a place in the semifinals against Nomads CC. The Stars scored 272 runs thanks to a classy 64 runs by Lalit Dubey followed by a good partnership of 60 runs between Mounir Barone and Ali Saleem. Vipin and Aman hits some lusty blows to propel the innings to a winning total.
Power then were cruising at 202 for 3 wickets but the guile of young Arjun Vinod who dug deep into the Power batting line up with 6 wickets for 34 runs enabled the stars to overpower the opponents by 34 runs. He was deservedly named man of the match. The stars fielded well and held some stunning catches in the field.
