RIDING ON a superb six-wicket haul by Zuber, the Red House today lifted the trophy for the under-13 category of the St Michael’s Inter-Academy Cricket Tournament being organised at St Michael’s Cricket Academy at Bab-e-Aali Stadium. The Red House defeated Yellow House by 62 runs.

In the first final match of the tournament, which is being played for under-13, under-15, and under-17 categories, the Red House dominated over Yellow House in every department. Besides the splendid performance of the team, the luck too favoured the Red House.

Batting first after winning the toss gave the opportunity to the Red House to set a big target for the Yellow House. The budding cricketers of 10 to 13 years of age played like professionals. Scoring 122 runs in the stipulated 40 overs, the Red House was quite satisfied. Faraz Ahmed scored the highest (24) runs while Talib scored 21.

For the Yellow House, Awadhesh claimed five wickets. Hamid and Mohit claimed two wickets each. Chasing the target, Zuber put up perhaps his best performance. His six wickets haul compelled the Yellow House team to surrender. Such was his fabulous bowling that the Yellow House team collapsed for 60. Raunaq scored 15 runs. Zuber was declared man of the match.
