Guwahati, Nov. 8: Modern English School handed an eight-wicket defeat to South Point School in their group league match of the 3rd Sitaram Agarwala inter-school (under-17) cricket tournament at Judges Field here today.

In reply, Modern School achieved the modest target losing only two wickets in 9.4 overs.
Subham Dutta (21, 4x2) and Abhijit Roy (16, 4x2) were the only notable scorers for South Point.
