Dravid, Mardi shine as BUCC drub Standard

Former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid turned up for his club Bangalore United Cricket Club (1), and the presence of the legendary cricketer was enough to inspire them to an innings and 91-run win over Standard Cricket Club in the KSCA Group I Division II tournament for MAT Acharya Shield over the weekend.

Batting first, BUCC scored 365 for nine in 73 overs with Dravid making a solid 69. He was well supported by Nihal Ullal (86) and Sharath Srinivas (40).

Chasing a massive target, Standard were no match for the left-arm pace of Parappa Mardi. Mardi grabbed seven wickets conceding 34 runs in the first innings to skittle out Standard for 160 all out and the pacer bagged four more wickets in the second innings to wreck Standard, who were all out for 114 in 33.1 overs.

Raunak Shah (3-38) and Zeeshan Ali Sayed (2-8) produced good support spells.
