It was the all important semi-finals of the U/14 Singhania Tournament between IES Mulund & Singhania School held at the Raymonds Cricket Ground in Mumbai. Singhania School (SCA) won the toss and elected to bat first as they have a strong batting line in the likes of Jay Jain, Aryan Dalal & other talented kids.
Batting first, Singhania Boys could have done a better job considering their strong batting line up but still they came up with a defendable score of 185/10 in 34.4 overs where in their opener Aryan Dalal scored a very solid looking 40 off 72balls(4fours). The pick of the scorers was Jay Jain scoring a crucial half-century (54 off 53) while also stitching a very important 100 run partnership with Aryan Dalal which helped them atleast cross the 150run mark. Shreyas was the pick of the bowlers taking 3/28 followed by 2/12 & 2/27 by Hrishikesh & Herambh.
Chasing 186, IES Mulund were all out for 144/10 in 34 overs. It was a great bowling perfomance from Singhania bowlers which restricted them to just 144 and defend a match of a low total. Mandar G was the pick of the bowlers taking 3/20 in 5 overs followed by 2/15 by Srivatsa. Left-arm spinner Aryan Dalal also bowled well chipping in with 2/18 in his 7 overs followed by 2/23 by Anuj.
Singhania school earned a commendable win in the semi-finals while it was a collective team efforts put by the Singhania boys while all-rounder Aryan Dalal was declared ‘man of the match’ for scoring 40 & also taking 2wkts. Cricketgraph congratulates Aryan & the whole team for putting up such a great show & also wishes luck to all the talented players for a great year ahead.
