Jain Heritage prevail in thriller

Jain Heritage School held their nerve to notch up a thrilling six-wicket win over Jain International Residential School in a low-scoring tie of the KSCA (under-16) Cup for Division I teams.

Batting first, JIRS were bundled out for a mere 95 in 33.1 as Likith M Bannur dismissed six batsmen while conceding just seven runs. Jain Heritage then took the field in hope of scoring some good runs but they were in for a surprise as they were shot out for a lowly 57 in 24.3 overs as JIRS’ Sheetal Kumar bagged seven for 23.

Braced with a 38-run lead despite doing little with the bat, JIRS once again took to the field with hopes of bettering their performance with the bat but they only did worse.
With Jain Heritage’s Dee­pesh Poona (6/13) and Likith (4/13) scalping ten wickets between them JIRS were swept away for a meagre 29 in 9.4 overs.

Needing 67 runs to win, Jain Heritage lost four of their batsman but Sai Prajwal Reddy carried his team past the target on the back of his unbeaten 38.
