Rarest incident: 10 batsmen fall for a duck in U-16 Harris Shield match


Mumbai, Nov 21 (IANS): In one of a kind incident, not even a single batsman of the Children's Welfare Centre School team was able to score a run against Swami Vivekanand School (SVIS) in a U-16 Harris Shield match as 10 of them fell for without scoring.

While chasing a mammoth 762-run target on Wednesday, Children's Welfare Centre School were all-out for just 7 runs, with all runs coming off extras and in the process suffered a massive 754-run defeat at the New Era Cricket Club plot, Azad Maidan.

Earlier, SVIS from Borivali amassed 761/4 in 45 overs with their one batsman -- Meet Mayekar -- playing an unbeaten knock of 338 runs. His 134-ball delivery knock was studded with seven sixes and 56 boundaries. Krishna Parte (95) and Ishan Roy (67) too made significant contributions.

SVIS -- which is also the alma mater of Rohit Sharma -- plundered 605/4 in 39 overs but the Children's Welfare Centre School were penalised 156 runs for not completing their 45 overs in time.

For Swami Vivekanand International School, Alok Pal scalped six wickets conceding just three runs while Varad Vaze picked two.

    I guess even Junior level cricket did not spare from betting and match fixings. Current Economic crisis have led unemployment and left no option but to engage in illegal activities for the survival.

    Thank god 7 runs came in the form of leg bye,wide,no ball and so on to bring some pride and smile otherewise this would have a added misery to the team and the coach not a single run came from the bat without troubling the scorers.Thats why cricket is a foolish game played by 11 fools and watched by 11000 fools.
