Inter-District (U-25) One Day Cricket Tournament
Ludhiana, October 11
A fine all-round performance by Ludhiana cricketers, Deepin Chitkara and Gurmehar Singh fashioned Moga’s 79-run victory over Ropar in the fourth and last league match of group B in the ongoing Punjab State Inter-District (U-25) One Day Cricket Tournament, played at the Government College ground in Ropar on Monday.
Moga scored 195 runs in 40.1 overs and restricted Ropar to 116 runs in 29.3 overs in which Ludhiana duo of Deepin Chitkara and Gurmehar were the main architects.
Deepin cracked a century (102 runs off 68 balls) with the help of seven sixes and 10 boundaries and then scalped two victims for 28 runs in seven overs whereas Gurmehar chipped in with 27 runs and grabbed four wickets for 22 runs in 9.3 overs to script win for their side.
Besides Deepin and Gurmehar, three other players from Ludhiana, Jaish Jain, Gobindjot Singh and Gurjot Singh, have lately shifted from Ludhiana to Moga as they alleged ill-treatment by certain selectors, coaches and office-bearers of the Ludhiana District Cricket Association.
They justified their decision to represent the district team other than their home town Ludhiana as they performed well in the tournament and helped their side reach the second spot after Mohali on the points table.
Mohali with four wins from four matches qualified for the knockout stage whereas Moga after suffering defeat against Mohali had to settle for the second place in the group B. Ludhiana, Ropar and Fatehgarh Sahib finished at third, fourth and fifth place, respectively.
