Young Cricketers ride on batsmen's exploits

Five half-centuries guided Young Cricketers (1) to a facile 111-run win over Chamarajpet Cricket Club in their KSCA Group I, Divison IV league tournament for the Metro Shield.

Batting first, Young Cricketers rode on half-centuries from Sanath (53), Praveera (74), Srinivas Raju (61), Balaji (50) and Vasanth (83) to post a daunting 295 for nine in 50 overs.

In response, Chamarajpet’s batsmen -- Akshay (55) and Hariharan (51) -- put up a semblance of a fight but the target was too far-fetched as a result of lack of contribution from elsewhere as they were bundled out for 184 in 28.5 overs with Bharath picking up four wickets for Young Cricketers.

In another match, Friends Cricket Team defeated Vikram Cricket Club by five wickets.
