Our Sports Reporter

New Delhi, April 6
A devastating 4 for 24 bowling performance by leg-spinner Chetanya Nanda and dashing knocks by Mayank Sidana (60) and Saket Bhatia (50 n o) helped Sonnet Club stun Indian Airlines by five wickets and enter the final of the Devender Singh Memorial Cricket Tournament for the Tara Devi Mathur Trophy, organised by Young Friends Club, at the Harbaksh Singh Stadium. Chetanya Nanda was adjudged the man of the match.

Electing to bat, Indian Airlines lost wickets at regular intervals to totter at 94 for five, and eventually folded up for 155 in 42 overs, with Chetanya Nanda emerging as the wrecker-in-chief.

Only Rajat Bhatia showed some sort of resistance to remain unbeaten on 35. In reply, openers Mayank Sidana and Shikhar Dhawan put on 63 runs for the opening wicket to give a blazing start to the Sonnet innings.

Mayank Sidanaís 60 was studded with nine fours while Saket Bhatiaís half century contained seven fours.

Scores: Indian Airlines: 155 all out in 42 overs (Rajat Bhatia 35 n o, Shafiq Khan 25, R R Parida 21, Chetanya Nanda 4 for 24).

Sonnet Club: 156 for 5 in 38.1 overs (Mayank Sidana 60, Saket Bhatia 50 n o, R P Singh 2 for 10, Sonu Sharma 2 for 21).


Manan Sharma spins a deadly web
Our Sports Reporter

New Delhi, April 6
Left-arm spinner Manan Sharma spun a deadly web around Gyan Bharti South Delhi Academy batsmen to claim five wickets conceding a measly ten runs and guide Sonnet Club to a 20-run victory in a league match of the first Dr Hedgewar Cup Under-15 Cricket Tournament at the Rashtriya Swabhiman Khel Parisahd ground. Manan was named the man of the match.

Electing to bat, Sonnet were all out for 112 in 30.5 overs with only Mayank Aggarwal and Rushil Bhaskar batting with responsibility. Sonnetís total was an easy target but the Gyan Bharti batsmen crumbled like a pack of cards in the face of hostile bowling by Manan Sharma who inflicted one body blow after another to send Gyan Bharti crashing to 92.

Only Varun Sudan, Vidur Sethi and Prateek Pawar put up some resistance to gather some runs, but their efforts went in vain as the other batsmen caved in, unable to negotiate the guile of Mananís spinning arm.

Scores: Sonnet Club: 112 all out in 30.5 overs (Mayank Aggarwal 34, Rushil Bhaskar 30, Suhail Virmani 4 for 10, Naman Khanna 2 for 15).

Gyan Bharti: 92 all out in 32.1 overs (Varun Sudan 32, Vidur Sethi 25, Prateek Pavar 17, Manan Sharma 5 for 10, Mohit Malhotra 3 for 20).
