Ludhiana, June 14

Impressive innings by Kamal (120), Jaiveer Bhinder (80), Moulik Chhabra (56) and an equally useful bowling display by spinner, Prabhkirat Singh (7 for 56) and Garv Kumar (6 for 52) anchored Kapurthala to an innings victory over Ludhiana in the last league match of group B in the ongoing Punjab State Inter-District U-19 Cricket Championship for Dhruv Pandove Trophy played here at the GRD Global Education Institute ground on Hambran Road on Tuesday.

With this win, Kapurthala scripted second outright victory and topped the group to qualify for the semi finals whereas Mohali and Ludhiana with one outright win each finished at second and third place, respectively. Ropar secured fourth position and Nawanshahr finished at the fifth and last spot.

On Monday, Ludhiana in the first innings were bowled out for 141 runs and Kapurthala, in reply were 138 for four.

Today, the visitors resumed at overnight score and went on to score 306 runs in 75.4 overs thus taking a vital and decisive lead of 165 runs. Last night not out batsmen Kamal and Jaiveer Bhinder took the score to 175 before the latter losing his wicket after contributing 80 runs.

Kamal slammed 120 runs off 165 balls with the help of eleven boundaries and three sixes. Siddhant Tiwari of Ludhiana got rid of nine batsmen in 32.4 overs after giving away 113 runs however this feat went in vain as Kapurthala gained first innings lead that turned the tide in their favour.

Facing a deficit of 165 runs in first innings, Ludhiana wilted under pressure as their second essay culminated at 110 runs in which Prabhkirat Singh played a stellar role, chipping with seven wickets to steer his side wrap up the issue comfortably (by an innings and 55 runs) and secure a berth in the knock-out stage.
