Mumbai humble President's XI

Defending champions KSCA President’s XI suffered a humiliating innings defeat inside two days of the four-day match against Mumbai Cricket Association XI in the Safi Darashah all-India invitational tournament at the SJCE ground in Mysore on Saturday.

After allowing the visiting side to amass over 200 runs for the last three wickets on Friday’s opening day, President’s XI, in pursuit of Mumbai’s 399, were simply not up to the mark. Mumbai paceman Kshemal Waingankar was the chief destroyer with a match haul of 10/83, seven of them coming in the first innings (7/45) when President’s XI were rolled over for a paltry 79.

A mammoth 320 runs in deficit, President’s XI were asked to follow on and their performance was only marginally better this time thanks to some gritty batting by the lower-order batsmen Ryan Ninan (29) and Ronit More (33). The home team innings eventually folded up for 138 in 32.3 overs as Mumbai registered a crushing innings and 183-run win.

At BGS in Bangalore, KSCA Colts positioned themselves for an upset win over KSCA XI. Overnight 279/5, Colts finished their innings with an imprrssive 406 all out on board with KC Avinash (119 n.o.) bringing up his century. KSCA XI’s reply was meek as they ended the day on a shaky 160/7 in 50 overs; still 246 runs behind Colts’ total and needing another 96 runs to avoid the follow on.

Elsewhere in Mysore, Rajasthan Cricket Academy, overnight 343/4, were in sight of a big win after reducing the Hyderabad to 104/4. Rajasthan posted a massive 626 all out with Hrishikesh Kanitkar (149) and Arjit Gupta (114) making major contributions.
