Sumit Mathur, Prashant Singh shine in Daredevils Cup

New Delhi, Oct 5 (IANS) Left-arm spinners Sumit Mathur (Ganga International School) and Prashant Singh (St. Sophia Senior Secondary School) became the first bowlers to claim five-wicket hauls in the second Daredevils School Cup at the Air Force Cricket Ground in Palam here Saturday.

Mathur, who played for Delhi under-16 team in the Vijay Merchant Trophy, was the toast of Ganga International's second successive victory in Group B, an eight-wicket conquest of MRV School, Dwarka. His haul of five for nine in four overs reduced MRV School from 45 for two to 79 all out.

Prashant was the architect of St Sophia's massive 169-run victory over St Mary's Public School, Dwarka. His haul of five for three in 2.2 overs ensured that his team bowled out its rival for just 24 runs. Earlier, riding on a 136-run second-wicket stand between Akshay Solanki (57, 38 balls, eight fours, one six) and skipper Ankit Gera (63, 56 balls, five fours, one six), St. Sophia posted a huge score of 193 for four in 20 overs.

The scores:

Group B: MRV School, Dwarka, 79 in 20 overs (Sumit Mathur five for nine) lost to Ganga International School 80 for two in 15 overs (Yash Vora 34 not out, Arun Dalal 31).

Group D: Don Bosco Public School 53 in 16.5 overs (Hemanshu Choudhary two for 18, Anuj Siwash three for 12) lost to St Mary's Public School, Neb Sarai, 64 for two in 12.2 overs (Anuj Siwash 30 not out).
