U19 Boys Cricket SAIKAC – JPGS Champions
After a slow start, the results of long training sessions began to pay off with some excellent bowling from all bowlers, and we managed to bowl the BISJ team out for 159 runs. Allied to the strong bowling, the fielders did not disappoint and lived up to the team motto of “Catches Win Matches”. A special mention must go to Mustafa Usmani for an outstanding catch at point to ensure that the match stayed in our favour.
Next up JPGS was put into bat, and for the first time in a long while two new players stepped out to the crease to open the batting for JPGS. After only the first over JPGS already had their backs against the wall loosing their first 2 wicket for no runs.
At that moment Daniyal Mirza stepped out to the crease and took the game by the horns, blasting an amazing 87 runs to steady the ship and bring JPGS home to victory.
It was a very eventful and successful afternoon for the JPGS cricket team who are now proudly able to call themselves SAIKAC 2016 champions.
Well done to all payer and coaches involved and I look forward to taking this team further in the future.
