Batting first, Lochan Appanna’s splendid 197 and Abhishek Poll’s unbeaten 94 and a half-century from Aiyappa CR (61) spurred Cottons to 503/7 in 90 overs.

FAPS were skittled out for 254 with Luvnith’s hundred (120) and P Rishiketh’s 52 not enough to get them closer to Cottons’ massive score. Following on, FAPS were restricted to 51/2.

In the second semifinal, Presidency School beat St Joseph’s Indian High School (SJIHS) on the basis of first innings lead. Presidency School made 298/9 in 90 overs.

In their second innings, Presidency made 197/6 in 65 overs with Saurabh top-scoring with 93.  The final will be played on Friday and Saturday at the JSS (T) grounds.
