Satyak's fifer takes Hansraj Morarji on verge of victory

Thirteen-years-old Satyak Patel's family relocated to Navi Mumbai so that he could be admitted to Andheri's Hansraj Morarji School and fulfill his cricketing ambitions

The move seems to have worked for the left-arm spinner, who ended the day with figures of 12-5-12-5 which helped his team bowl out Dhirubhai Ambani International School (BKC) for a paltry 86 in 38 overs on Day Two of the three-day Harris Shield Plate Division final at Cross Maidan yesterday.

In their first innings, Hansraj reached a total of 367 in 107 overs courtesy a gritty 153 by Onkar Thakur. The Andheri team, in their second essay, ended the day on 71-1 with a healthy 352-run lead.

Having scalped Dhirubhai Ambani’s skipper Agni Chopra (51), Karan Dharia (4), Devansh Jalota (6), Arnav Parikh (2) and Mohneesh Hinduja (0), Satyak took his tally to 25 wickets in five matches.
