Bhavan’s romp to ten-wicket win in Nagpur in MI Junior Cricket Tournament’20

Nagpur: Bhavan’s BP Vidyamandir, Ashti cruised to a comfortable 10-wicket win after bowling out Jain Heritage School for 37 runs in the Boys’ U-16 match in the Mumbai Indians Junior Cricket Tournament 2020 at the MS Dhoni Ground in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Bhavan’s bowler Rishab Oberai picked up four wickets to break the backbone of a shaky Jain Heritage batting line-up. They eventually put up a meagre total which Bhavan’s openers Chetan Meena (17 not out), Shikhar Randhir (16 not out) knocked off in two overs.

In the U-16 Girls match at Nelco Ground in Nagpur, Aditi Bante’s all-round show guided St. Joseph’s Convent School to a convincing ten-wicket win over MKH Sancheti Public School. Aditi took four wickets as Sancheti made just 46 all-out in 11.5 overs. She then hammered an unbeaten 20 in 10 balls to help her school register a big win in 3.4 overs.
