RADHARAMAN INSTITUTE of Technology and Science (RITS) continued its winning way and today registered a hard-fought a three-wicket victory over PCST in the RGPV Nodal Cricket Tournament being organised at RITS. NIP defeated JNCT in the second match.

The start of the match went against RITS when the skipper called wrong at the toss. But the PCST team failed to capitalise on the opportunity of batting first. The RITS bowlers never allowed them to score liberally. Good fielding by RITS played a significant role in restricting the opponents for 102 runs in the stipulated 25 overs.

Nikhil Sharma who played some big shots scored the highest 34 runs that included one six and five boundaries. For the bowling side, Ajay Patel with three wickets was the highest wicket taker.

Though the RITS top order could not repeat the performance of the last match, sensible batting by the middle order ensured the team’s victory by three wickets. RITS win the match in 16.4 overs. In the second one-sided match, NIP thumped JNCT by eight wickets. Chasing the target of 94 runs, NIP lost just two in 19 overs.
