The Raymond Cricket Ground witnessed a great bowling perfomance from the young Lokpuram Boys & especially Naman and Soham showed a lot of promise with the ball. On a damp wicket like Raymonds, the decision of batting first did make much of a difference to the Lokpuram school as they knew if they bowl well they can restrict BSMS to a low total.
BSMS batting first managed to put only 82 runs on the board with the loss of 10wkts in 20 overs. Left-arm spinner Soham Pitkar was simply phenomenal with the ball scalping 4/6 in his 2 overs. Right-arm fast bowler Naman Hiren also entertained the spectators with a magical hat-trick to trouble the opposition & further dent their innings as he came up with economical bowling figures of 3/11 in his 5 overs followed by 2/21 by Jainam Kataria.
Chasing 83 was a mere formality though BSMS gave a tough fight as they did not allow them to win the match before taking their 6wkts where Shubham scalped 3 while Anish chipped in with 2wkts. Eventually BSMS chased down the score in 14.1 overs & won the match by 4wkts.
It was a commendable win for Lokpuram school & Naman Hiren was declared ‘man of the match’ for his economical bowling & also taking a hat-trick while Soham’s perfomance was also appreciation worthy. Cricketgraph congratulates the whole team for their win & wishes them all the luck for their future matches too.
