Young Boys clinch thriller

Varun Prakashs all-round effort goes in vain

Varun Prakash made an undefeated 62 and Suresh contributed 60 as Head Quarters reached 201, their principal destroyer being Sathadeep with figures of five for 65.
Prakash threatened to bowl his side to victory by taking two for 33 and supporting Manjunath (3/46) admirably, but Young Boys rode on small but crucial contributions from Harish Kamath (39), Lokesh (34) and Rajaram (48) to narrowly squeeze home.

In another match, Engrades Cricket Club notched up a commanding 155-run win over Anglo Youth Cricket Club.

Batting first, Engrades CC posted a mammoth 305 all out in the allotted 50 overs and Anglo YCC were swept under the rug for 150 in 41 overs.

Praveen (75), Arun Kumar (50), Raj (52) and Praveen C (57) scored a half-century each  for Engrades.
