In dramatic fashion General Education Academy (Chembur) snatched a tense one-run first innings lead against fancied Springfield (Khar) and ensured a semi-final win on an interesting second day of the MSSA inter-school Harris Shield boys’ U-16 cricket tournament at Bombay Gymkhana on Wednesday.


After being dismissed for 174 in their first innings, the General Education Academy (GEA) bowlers rose to the challenge, in particular off-spinner Rohan Patil, who claimed 6-32 and was involved in the crucial run out of non-striker Shubham Shaikh (No. 9 batsman) to help restrict Springfield to 173 all out in 52.4 overs.

In the second semi-final, Swami Vivekanand International School (Borivli) defeated IES New English School (Bandra) via first innings lead to set up a meeting with General Education Academy in a three-day final to be played at the Brabourne Stadium from December 11-13.

In the second semi-final at the MIG Cricket Club ground in Bandra, Swami Vivekanand dismissed IES New English for a paltry 176 runs in the 74.5 overs in their first innings and then posted a decent 216 all out in 58.5 overs to take a crucial 40-run first innings lead and clear their passage to the summit clash. IES New English were 69-4 after 21 overs at close of play.
