Held at All Saints cricket ground against Vasant Vihar School, Singhania School clashed with them for a crucial semi-final match where in Singhania School won the toss & elected to bat first in this 2day match since they have a good batting line up including their in-form Jay Jain who had a nice Lashkaria Tournament.
Their decision to bat first was quite spot on as they managed to score 273/10 in 92.3 overs. Opener Parth Ingale scored a 110ball 64 at the top of the order smashing 14 fours in it. Parth certainly gave a good start which developed a positive momentum. At no.3 came their left-handed Jay Jain who showed his mettle and class once again as he scored a stunning 96 off 198balls in the scorching heat. We have seen Jay playing aggressive cricket and today we also got to see that he has the patience and resilience to play a proper test cricket knock wherein he exactly batted for 198minutes in his 198ball stay smashing 16fours in it. Om Kesh Kamat also chipped in with a 42 to help his team cross the 250 run mark and reach 272. Sankalp Gupta and Atharva Jadhav also bowled really well taking 3wkts each while Tejas chipping in with 2wkts in his 3overs.
Vasant Vihar School in reply were all out for 245/10 at the end of the 2nd day’s play and Singhania school were the winners of the crucial semi-finals. Opener Yash Shaikh(89 off 138) & no.3 batsman Vrishin Shetty(60 off 114) looked very promising with their 156runs stand for 2nd wicket but they lacked support from the other end. Right-arm spinner Om-Kesh Kamat bowled a marathon spell of 33 overs in which he gave only 65runs while taking 4wkts while left-arm spinner Jash Jain chipped in with 3/74.
Singhania School won the match and the highlight of the match was certainly players from both the teams like Jay, Om and Parth from Singhania played really well while it was a tough fight given by Vasant Vihar’s Yash & Vrishin with their 156run stand. Cricketgraph congratulates Singhania school for their win while also wishes luck to all the talented boys for a bright future ahead.
