Rahul, Vinu do star turn for Cambridge

 Rahul Vernekar’s polished hundred and Vinu Prasad’s five-wicket haul trumped Adhoksh Hegde’s all-round show of an unbeaten century and a three-wicket effort as Cambridge Cricket Club collected three points on the basis of their first innings lead in their drawn encounter against Vijaya Cricket Club in the KSCA Group I, II Division league for the MAT Acharya Shield here.

Desite Hegde’s 118 not out, Vijay CC could muster only a modest 235 all out in 83.4 overs as Vinu returned impressive figures of 5/60.

In reply, Cambridge CC declared their innings closed at 343/5 in 75 overs with Vernekar producing 108. Anurag Bajpai (97) narrowly missed out on his cenury while Abhishek Bhat contributed an unbeaten 62 to help Vijaya CC garner lead.
