Vinu sets up big win for Cambridge

A ten-wicket haul for the match by Vinu Prasad set up Cambridge Cricket Club’s eight-wicket victory over Jawahar Sports Club (2) in the KSCA, Group I, Division II league for the Sri MAT Acharya Shield here.

Vinu’s 5/24 helped Cambridge bundle out Jawahar SC for a paltry 103 in 36.5 overs. The Cambridge batsmen, powered by half-centuries from Rajoo Bhatkal (68) and Rahul Vernekar (61), then posted 251/6 declared in 68.3 overs, gaining a healthy first innings lead of 148 runs.

Jawahar SC batsmen failed to build a strong total in their second essay as well and they were skittled out for 186 in 75 overs, setting a 39-run target for their opponents. Vinu once again proved to be the most successful bowler for Cambridge, returning with figures of 5/64.

Cambridge knocked down the target in 9.2 overs, losing two wickets, to walk home with five points.

Jawahar SC were docked a point following their defeat.

In another game, Kushwal W bagged nine wickets for the match to help Jolly Cricketers bag three points from their drawn match against Young Lions Club.
