Ludhiana, July 17

Ludhiana trounced Fatehgarh Sahib by 10 wickets in a group B match in the Inter-District T20 Cricket Tournament for Punjab Championship played at GRD Global Education Institute ground on Hambran Road here on Saturday.

Batting first, the visitors were bundled out for a small total of 79 runs. They failed to put any semblance of resistance against Ludhiana bowlers as only two batsmen, namely Gurmail Singh and Ajay Pal Singh, could reach double figure.

Gurmail scored 27 runs off 39 balls with the help of one boundary and one six while Ajay Pal contributed 11 runs including two hits over the ropes.

For Ludhiana, Hartejassvi Kapoor, Baltej Singh, Vaibhav Kalra, Dipin Chitkara and Yogi shared the bowling honours. Hartejassvi chipped in with three wickets after conceding 26 runs, Baltej got rid of two batsmen for 11 runs and Vaibhav captured two wickets for 18 runs. Dipin Chitkara grabbed one wicket for nine runs and Yogi claimed one wicket after giving away 14 runs.

Facing an easy target, Ludhiana consumed just 6.3 overs to overhaul Fatehgarh Sahib’s total to register a facile victory.

In the next match, scheduled for July 19 at Mohali, Ludhiana will take on Mohali.
