The third round of Harris Shield match between Cathedral & John Cannon vs IES was a good competition where in Cathedral school won the toss and put themselves to bat first. The team reached a fighting total of 181/8 in 45 overs out of which No.3 batsman Shreyas Saraf scored a splendid 75*.
Shreyas was cool and batted like a pro remaining unbeaten till the end, just exactly what his coach and team needed from him. Shreyas who is known for his calm temperament at the crease and building the innings did exactly what his role was.
IES were put through some grueling bowling sessions and their Batsman were consistently kept troubled by Krish and Sumir. Left arm off spinner Krish Shah was the man of the hour putting strong performance with the ball taking a five wicket haul for his 5/24. He got adequate support from medium pacer Sumir Zhaveri too who grabbed important breakthroughs with his 3/37.
Bundling the IES school for 132 & winning the match by 49 runs, no one from their side apart from Yash’s 35 looked solid enough to face their bowling. Cathedral & John Connon who has a lot of support from their school management and principal to nurture the talents surely has an in form set of players in their arsenal to prepare themselves for the next round of matches!
