Al-Barkaat MMI English School (Kurla) team consists of kids from humble backgrounds, but their hunger for success helped them beat a heavyweight of a school team at Azad Maidan yesterday

The Kurla outfit defeated former champions Rizvi Springfield (Bandra) by virtue of their 103-run first innings lead on Day Three of the MSSA-MI Giles Shield Elite Division semi-final.

Rizvi bowled out Al-Barkaat for 189 in 70.3 overs in the second innings, but it was too late. With half an hour of play left, Rizvi made 31 runs in 11 overs — far behind their 292-run target and Al-Barkaat was declared the winner.
