Interhouse Cricket: A running commentary

The Inter House Cricket Tournament kicked off on the February 9 with Green House playing Blue House. Blue House were definitely the underdogs going into this match but they put up a good fight. Blue House was put in to bat and made a modest total of 69 runs in 12 overs with the batting collapsing to the mighty bowling of Dhananjaya Chak who snatched 5 wickets in just 3 overs. The top scorer for Blue House was Raghav Sareen of class IX scoring 17 runs. Green House won the match with three overs to spare as Blue House gave a mammoth total of 44 extras. The Man of the match was undoubtedly Dhananjaya Chak of Green House. 

The next match played on the same day was between Red House and Yellow House, two evenly matched sides. 

Yellow House won the toss and elected to bat. They were off to a flying start with the run rate being 8 in just 4 overs but later lost wickets at regular intervals with Aashman Bhatia, 16 runs, being the top scorer. Dhruv Mahajan and Utsav Sidhu pulled things back with economical spells picking up four wickets between them. Yellow House eventually ended up with a score of 65 in 11.3 overs with three balls to spare. In reply Vikas Venugopal and Karan Vasudeva got their team off to a great start, with Vikas doing bulk of the scoring ending up with an individual total of 45 not out. Red House cruised to victory winning by a massive margin of 10 wickets, as the Yellow House bowlers did not live up to their expectations. Vikas was rightly named Man of the Match, with a score of 45 not out as well as two catches and a stumping.
