Balmohan Vidyamandir School is definitely raising their stakes day by day. From playing in the Plate Group last year, Balmohan team has worked hard & given great performances over the time to raise their game to a different level. It is because of their sheer hard work they are playing in the Elite group of the Harris Shield Tournament this year. That’s a meteoric rise for a hard working team which has given consistent performances every time over the past one year.
Their strong performance can rightly be reflected in the ongoing game against Jamnabai Narsee Team where they have displayed a lot of resilience against the Jamnabai team. Winning the toss first, Balmohan went off to a solid start with the help of Shreyas Pathak and Swarup Kamble. Shreyas who was going through a rough patch requested the coach to open the innings & it reaped heavy dividends for the team.
Both the openers looked rock solid at the crease and were looking poised to score a big hundred. Kamble got off to a good start but lost his wicket at 33 facing 105 balls. It was altogether a different case for Shreyas Pathak as he continued playing good shots and scored a superb hundred in no time. His free flow with the bat continued even after he completed his century as he remained unbeaten on 162 off just 186 balls. Shreyas played classy shots which were really good to the eyes. Not a single bowler could decode his solid technique and resilience at the crease. The best part about his innings was he was completely calm and never played a risky shot despite playing at a strike rate of almost 85. Other batsman came in & supported him nicely forming useful partnerships. Atharva Chauhan also scored a splendid half century as Balmohan Team finished the day at 309/5 declare. Jamnabai bowlers toiled hard but it was not enough against the free flowing Shreyas who batted like a wall for his team. Jamnabai team is under pressure to chase the target where in they have already lost two big wickets.
The coach himself stated that their aim is to win the match outright to be on the top of the table. Balmohan boys are aiming to win this match upfront against Jamnabai and their eyes are surely on the prestigious Harris Shield Trophy.
