Yesterday however, Rehan Shaikh turned the tables once again in Fatima’s favour, scoring an unbeaten 184 under pressure. This, after clinching two crucial IES wickets — middle order batsmen Suvarna Rohan (23) LBW and Tejas Shetty (0) clean bowled — earlier in the day through his medium pace.

Then, coming in at No 4, 14-year-old Rehan hammered a quickfire 172-ball 184 (including 27 boundaries & three sixes) to help Fatima end the day on 284-3.
Meanwhile at Azad Maidan, IES VN Sule Guruji skipper Shreyas Kemkar carried on from his overnight 104 and went on to score a mammoth 303 not out as the Dadar side beat St Mary’s ICSE (Mazgaon) by a whopping 617 runs.
