The excitement in the tournament continued on the fifth day. The first match was played between White House and Orange House in the under-13 age category. Batting first, Orange House scored 90 runs in 20 overs. Palash scored the highest of 32 runs for the team.
Chasing the target, White House started the innings by scoring ones and twos.
