SINGAPORE U19s blaze through undefeated to WIN the ICC CWC Qualifiers Asia Div-2 Championship. The win takes the TEAM one step closer to an U19 WC berth.
In the finals, Hong Kong u19s who won the toss and elected to bat were restricted to 201/9 (50.0) by a solid Singapore u19s bowling unit performance.
The chase got tricky as Singapore was 2 for 7 with both openers back in the hut and further challenging when Sid Srikanth the leading run-scorer of the tournament was back in the sheds with the board reading 46/3(11.5).
It is at this juncture that Singapore u19s showed their depth in batting reserves with Vihaan M 102(92) playing an innings fitting the BIG FINAL to score a century and take the TEAM to within sight of glory.
The ever-dependable rearguard action of Aaryan Modi 56*(70) and Capt. Jeevan S 13*(15) ensured Singapore chased down the target and Won by 5 wkt with more than 12.0 overs to spare.
The WIN was stylishly signed off by Captain Jeevan S, hitting the winning runs with a crisp SIX over long on. The team charged on to the OCA Oval as proud SCA Officials watched and cheered the boys on together with the rest of the support staff.
Singapore u19 Capt. Jeevan S was awarded the PLAYER OF THE TOURNAMENT for picking up a truckload of wickets (15 wkts in 5 games).
Singapore U19s won many an applause and fans for the brand of cricket they played in Oman. Wish them all the very best and trust this WIN will build a great TEAM & PLAYERS contributing to many more PROUD MOMENTS FOR SINGAPORE CRICKET for years to come.
SCA THANKS ALL THE WELL WISHERS for their support.
The TEAM ARRIVES IN SINGAPORE ON SUNDAY. WISH THE TEAM A SAFE JOURNEY BACK.
