After a brisk start when Ravindra Public School made 35 runs in the first five overs, Vidya Jain Public School came back strongly to restrict scoring down to 117 for seven in 20 overs. However, the hinges came off its chase for victory when Vivek Bhatu struck frequently and helped his team score a superb win.
In other matches, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan scored a second successive win in Group E, a facile 41-run verdict over Frank Anthony Public School, while Shourya Chaudhry was unfortunate to miss the milestone of a century for Vishwa Bharati Public School (Noida).
