This was a day the opposition I.C.S college of KHED will never forget in the longest time as Khalsa boys literally demolished the bowlers with their aggressive batting notching up a record highest total in this tournament ever. Played at the National Cricket Club, Cross Maidan, Khalsa won the toss and elected to bat first with an aim of making a big 1st innings total.
Their decision to bat first was quite spot on as Khalsa College went on to make a mammoth 570/7 in 45overs which is quite unheard of. Openers Jayesh pokhare and Bhavan Taneja literally took away the game from the very 1st ball with an epic 100runs stand coming off mere 30 deliveries. The positive momemtum was already set for the rest of the batsman to capitalize upon. Japjeet Singh Randhawa continued the positive momentum as he played an anchoring knock of 116 coming of mere 85 deliveries. Sanath Wagal also gave a handy contribution smashing 74runs off 50balls which eventually took their team total to such a big one.
On the other hand, Khalsa also restricted ICS to mere 89runs/all out where in Yash Chavan bowled a match winning spell taking 5wkts and stamping his presence as a frontline bowler. All-rounders Bhavan Taneja(3wkts) and Jaydeep (2wkts) gave a perfect all-round contribution in the game which played a big role today in Khalsa creating history where they also won by a record margin of 480runs. It was definitely Khalsa’s day and all the boys collectively played well together.
