Crisp show by Parle!
Tilak Vidyalaya (English) trounce St Jude HS by 375 runs in Giles Shield.
Parle Tilak Vidyalaya English's (Vile Parle) left-handed batsmen—Raza Mirza (238) and Sai Sanil (173 not out) along with off-spinner Sanskar Dahelkar (7-13) helped their school post a huge 375-run win over St Jude's High School in the under-14 Giles Shield at Azad Maidan on Monday.
Raza and Sai stitched a 362-run stand for the third wicket which allowed Parle Tilak post a mammoth 468 for three in the allotted 45 overs. Dahelkar was just unplayable during his 12-2-13-7 spell. In reply, St Jude team managed just 93 with the help of 41 extras.
In another one-sided affair at the same maidan, IES VN Sule Guruji Vidyalaya (Dadar) thrashed OLPS (Chembur) by 229 runs.

In reply, the Chembur side were bundled out for a mere 73, thanks to left-arm spinner Dharsh Murkute and pacer Ishan Ghadigaonkar, who claimed five and three wickets respectively. Defending champions Al Barkaat MMI (Kurla) survived a big scare against VK Menon Academy (Borivli) in a closely-contested low scoring encounter at Oval Maidan.
