SVM win cliffhanger
Our Sports Reporter

Ludhiana, October 25
Despite fine batting display by Arjun Puri, Akash Juneja and Archit, Kundan Vidya Mandir School, Civil Lines, bowed out from the PCA Parle Inter-School Cricket Tournament (U-17) today as they were humbled by the Sanatan Vidya Mandir School by 9 runs

The tournament is being organised by the Ludhiana District Cricket Association under the ageis of the Punjab Cricket Association at the Sacred Heart Senior Secondary School, Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar Ground here.

With two wins each, Sacred Heart School, BRS Nagar, KVV School and Sanatan Vidya Mandir School have accumulated four points.

However, on the basis of better average, the hosts, Sacred Heart School, have qualified for the Inter-District Inter-School Tournament scheduled to start from next month.

In the last league fixture, Kundan Vidya Mandir School needed a resounding victory to secure a place in the Inter-District stage of the tournament but they stumbled at the last hurdle, leaving a berth for the Sacred Heart School, BRS Nagar.

Sanatan Vidya Mandir School won the toss and opted to bat. Owing to Nakul Sharma's sterling batting performance, who hit 66 runs, they made 170 runs in 34.1 overs.

Other notable scorers were Deepak Bansal and Navdeep who contributed 21 and 17 runs, respectively.

For Kundan Vidya Mandir School, Jasdeep was the pick of bowlers, claiming four wickets. Bharat Malhotra and Tarun Bawa chipped in with two victims each.

The KVM lads began their reply on a sedate note with Arjun Puri (33), Akash Juneja (35) and Archit (45) scoring lavishly but the batting order down the line failed to capitalise on the healthy foundation and their essay culminated at 161 runs with two balls to spare.

Brief scores: Sanatan Vidya Mandir School- 170 all out in 34.1 overs (Nakul Sharma 66, Atul Kohli 15, Deepak Bansal 21, Navdeep 12 and Vinod 17; Bharat Malhotra 2 for 20, Tarun Bawa 2 for 33, Jasdeep 4 for 28 and Shivam 1 for 17)

Kundan Vidya Mandir School- 161 all out in 39.4 overs (Arjun Puri 33, Akash Juneja 35 and Archit 45; Deepak Bansal 1 for 23, Vimal 2 for 22, Nakul Sharma 2 for 22 and Atul Kohli 1 for 36).
