President's XI take control

Dharwad Zone’s Shivham Gondkar shone with eight wickets but that was not enough to stop President’s XI from taking a comfortable first innings lead in the KSCA inter-zonal under-16 tournament on Wednesday.

Batting first, Dharwad batsmen fell like a pack of cards and were bowled out for a paltry 85 in 42.2 overs. Deepesh Poonia (4/20) and Jerrin Joy (4-41) shared the spoils with four wickets apiece.

In order to contain President’s XI, Dharwad had to bowl out of their skins and while Shivham managed to do so with a fine 8/52, President’s XI still posted 181 all out in 54.4 overs for a 96-run lead.
