Malviya beat Vidya Jain to win Raghubir title
THE FINAL of the Lala Raghubir Singh tournament between Vidya Jain Academy (VJA) and Malviya Cricket Club (MCC) was a rather one-sided affair with VJA being bowled out for a paltry 64 in just 13.5 overs. They lost by ten wickets.
Though the organisers seemed to have made some 'big' arrangements for the final with music and lights, the relatively short match left them with no option but to kill time between the two innings.
VJA, who had reached the final after surprising many fancied teams such as Sonnet and ITC, were let down by their batsmen. Batting first, they seemed to have started well, reaching 31 for one in four overs, but soon lost opener Agnesh Surya for 23. No other batsman was able to stage any sort of resistance, and VJA sunk to 45 for 8 in a few minutes.
For MCC the wickets were shared among Pankaj Thakur, Praveen Thapar and Kapil Rana, who took three apiece. They were helped by some very bad shot selection from the VJA bats. The target hardly proved to be a cause for worry for MCC, and they achieved the target in just 9.3 overs without losing a wicket.
VJA 64 in 13.3 overs (Agnesh Surya 23, Rohit Sharma 15; Pankaj Thakur 3-18, Praveen Thapar 3-12, Kapil Rana 3-13) lost to MCC 65 in 9.3 overs (Dharmender 28, Dushyant 32).
