Match Report – Sat 21 Sep 2019 – MSDCA vs AIS

After playing series of in-house matches amongst the academy’s intermediate teams, it was a great opportunity for our intermediate team to participate in a match against other school academies to get greater exposure to hone their skills and to get experience of playing in a real match environment.

Dhoni Intermediate team was led by Captian Krishiv Garg. The toss was won by AIS team and elected to bat. They scored 206 for the loss of 6 wickets in 25 overs. In return, Dhoni team could score only 84 all out in 21 overs. AIS team won by 122 runs.

With the win of AIS, it was a good learning opportunity for Dhoni team particularly on the fielding placement to prevent boundaries and giving wides and no balls,  but despite this there were positive observations noticed among the Dhoni team as they took six wickets out of which there took four run-outs of AIS batsmen. Pick of the bowlers were Kashyap, Shreesh, who took one wicket each. Kashyap took two run-out both with unassisted direct throw on the wicket. Vihaan also contribute by making a run-out. In batting, the highest score was of Samyak scoring 10 off 14 balls, Kashyap 9 off 32 balls, Rohit 8 off 20 balls. Amongst all, Kashyap was awarded the best player award for his best performance.

Overall, the team have enjoyed the match despite the loss, as there were lot many areas they got exposure to, which they will try to address and perform better in the next coming matches.
