SJII & ACSI Captains, Before TossACS (Independent) & Raffles Institution Storm Into CCAB A Division School National Finals with Comprehensive Wins


The A Division Semi Finals, held at CSC & IA grounds on 11 May 2017 saw ACSI clashing with SJI International and RI taking on Victoria Junior College.

At the CSC ground, SJII won the toss and elected to bat. They got off to a brisk start with their openers getting to 22 by the fourth over, when Rajat got bowled by Nicholas Singham. Dharmil and Shane took the score to 41 by the 9th over. But once Shane was dismissed for a well compiled 28 the rest of the batsmen surrendered meekly. Only Mitra Sachin contributed towards the end taking SJII to a fighting sore of 81 in their 20 overs. Yuvraj Singh 2/21 and Shezad 2/13 were the most successful bowlers for ACS.


Yuvraj and Shardul attacked the SJII bowlers form the outset and put on 50 runs by the fifth over, when Shardul got bowled by Ashwin for 17. Yuvraj continued to play some good shots all around the field to ensure a 9-wicket win for ACS. Skipper Somil Batavia was not out on 17 to see his team through to the final. Yuvraj was unbeaten on 35 (3 x 4’s, 1 x 6). A comfortable win for the defending champions.

VJC & RI Captains, Before Toss

 

In the other semi-final, RI won the toss and elected to field. VJC started off badly, losing their top three batsmen for 22. However, they recovered very well through some sound batting performance from their middle order. Venkatesan led the way with an excellent 33 off 42 balls. Just when he looked set for a big score, he was needlessly runout. Skipper Kunal Doshi scored an unbeaten 15 to ensure that VJC got to a good score of 113 in their 20 overs. Ahaan Achar and Vaishob Anand took two wickets each for RI.

 

VJC needed early wickets at the start to have a fighting chance but the RI openers Abdul Rahman and Mustafa Anis sent their bowlers on a leather hunt scoring at will. They dealt mostly in boundaries and by the time Mustafa got out at 96  the game was as good as over. Mustafa took the game away for VJC with his scintillating knock of 56 off 46 balls (7x4’s and 2 x 6’s). The match finally ended in the 14th over with RI winning comfortably by 9 wickets. Abdul Rahman who gave valuable support to Mustafa, was unbeaten on 31 off 41 balls. An outstanding show by the 2 openers.         

 

Brief Scores: Victoria JC 113 for 9 in 20 over. Vekatesan Somesh 33, Kunal Doshi 15 NO, Ahaan Achar 2 for 15, Vaishob Anand 2 for 8.

                         Raffles Institution 114 for 1 in 14 overs.  Mustafa Anis 56, Abdul Rahman 31 NO.

                         Raffles Institution won by 9 wickets.
