Festival Cricket Match
30 November 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The festival cricket match was played between staff and students on November 30, 2020. The staff team was led by Headmaster Mr Ajay Singh and the students’ team was captained by Head Boy Shivam Virk. The proceedings got underway at 6.00 pm at the Headmaster’s Green. The batting and bowling were mutually decided. It was a 12-over match. The staff team batted first and put on board an impressive score of 111 for 7. Mr Ajay Singh contributed blistering 34 runs off 38 balls. He batted till the tenth over. He was supported in his efforts by cricket coach Mr Gurmeet Sethi. The duo of Shivam Virk and Mehul Maur did their level best to restrict the staff team but failed miserably. It was an uphill task for the students to chase the target with an asking rate of 9.3 per over. Shivam and Maninderpal were the openers. They scored 29 in 3 overs when Maninder lost his wicket. Shivam was the next to go. With the captain’s departure, the students were not able to firm up a stable partnership. The blitzkrieg unleased by the staff was simply unstoppable. With eight wickets down, it was left to Kartikey and Harman to salvage some pride. They managed to make it to 50 runs but it was too late to repair the damage. Manav contributed with a few boundaries here and there. The lethal bowling by staff undid every tactic and strategy adopted by the students. The Headmaster’s haul of 5 wickets got the staff its first 57-run win of the season. The commentators comprised Ranjodh Singh, Tavish Sood, Gurnoor Pahwa, Naina Bath and Chandan.
