Harrow St Mary's crowned London and East champions
6:24pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in Sport
Harrow St Mary's Under-15s stand just two games away from being crowned National Champions after thumping victories over Mildenhall and Finchampstead saw them crowned London and East champions for the first time.
Unbeaten Mildenhall were made to bowl first as all HMS’ Ian Harris (47) and Kushal Patel (38) helped Saints finished on 168 for six from their 20 overs.
Mildenhall's reply never really started as they stuttered along to 65 for four off 15 overs, before a late surge, with the game all but over, saw them reach 127 for four from their allotted overs, some 41 runs short. Patel, (two for 13) and Vaibhav Dubey (one for13) were the wicket takers.
Finchampstead were also left shell-shocked as Saints romped to a ten wicket win to secure a place at the national finals.
Finchampstead batted first but were pegged back by spin and the medium pacers, finishing on 121 for eight.
With a modest target to chase, HSM did not hang around with Harris (51) initially playing the anchor role, whilst Rawal blasted away at the other end, scoring 51 from 34 balls, including three sixes as HSM won at a canter inside fourteen overs.
They will now play in the National finals at Shrewsbury School on Monday.
Joint team manager Sadhna Patel said: “I am thrilled, whatever happens now we will be very proud of our boys.”
