Right handed opener Vinayak Yadav top scored with a solid looking 73 off 125balls which somewhat solidified the innings. Nishant Singh and Sunny Yadav also chipped in with 32 & 27 respectively.
Raahil Mehta from Utpal Sangvi was terrific with the ball as he looked really dangerous and troubled the batsman. Raahil was the pick of the bowlers as he took an impressive 5wkt haul in the match.
Chasing 217 is not the toughest of tasks but good bowling by Gyan Kendra restricted Utpal Sanghvi Global School to just 53runs. Left arm medium pacer Sunny Yadav simply stunning with the ball as he came up with match winning bowing figures of 5/20 in 8 overs. India already has a shortage of genuine left arm pacers and watching such a young prodigy bowl so well feels good to watch. Gyan Kendra School won the match by a big margin of 163 runs and these two young boys vinayak and sunny definitely stood out.
