Dubai — Nishant Shewakramani’s six wickets haul went in vain as Young Talent Cricket Academy suffered a narrow two-run defeat against Colts Academy in the Under 16 Skyline Ramadan at the Skyline College ground in Sharjah, a Press release said.

Colts Academy, who batted first, were bowled out for 113 runs in 18 overs. Nishant was the wrecker-in-chief as he single-handedly took on the Colts batting line-up by claiming six wickets for 17 runs. Neil Lobo (27) and Owais Sajid (26) were the only two Colts batsmen to show some resistance.

In reply, the YTCA batsmen inspired by Fahad Nawaz (37) and Karan Achutanan (27) came within sniffing distance of the victory target but were denied by the excellent team effort of Colts Academy.

In another match, Imad’s quickfire unbeaten knock of 56 backed by Tasawar’s all-round performance powered Mudassar CC to a five-wicket win over Al Asim CC.

Al Asim, who batted first, cashed in on Sajjad Khan’s 43-ball knock of 65, to put on 163 runs in the allotted 20 overs. Sajjad hit six sixes and five boundaries as he along with Farhan Azhar (20) took on the Mudassar bowlers.

Tauqeer had an excellent outing for Mudassar with three wickets for 34 while Tasawar (2-23), Zeeshan (2-24) and Naveed (2-45) contributed to their team. In reply, Mudassar CC, capitalised on some brilliant stroke play by Imad and Tasawar to reach home by scoring 164 runs for five wickets.
