We reached the school early that day. The match started at 9 A.M. The Jain Happy School team also arrived in time.
The two Umpires entered the ground. They were followed by the two Captains. There was a toss of a coin.
We won the toss and elected to bat first. The players began to warm up. They stretched and jumped. Our openers went to bat. They were loudly cheered. There was crowd of about 500 people. They made a good start.
But then Naresh was out when the score was 20. He scored 12 runs. Kamal walked in. He played some good strokes and scored steadily. Gagan was caught behind the wicket.
He was dismissed for 18 runs. Then came in our Captain Anil. He is an all-rounder. He scored 30 runs before he was declared LBW. It included a six and two fours. Later Shankar played well and scored 25 runs. It helped our side to reach 120 runs for eight in allotted 20 overs. After lunch the Jain Happy School Team started batting.
Their opening batsman played intelligently. They scored slowly and steadily. But their middle order batsmen could not face our attack.
They were soon out one after another. They made 70 runs in 15 overs and gave away five wickets. Their tail Enders played boldly.
But then they were all out for 105 runs. We beat them by 15 runs. I took their three valuable wickets.
