Teams from eight districts took part.
Our first match against Ooty was won by 70 runs and M Surya was named Man of the Match.
We went on to beat the Salem team by 9 wickets and then victory over Trichy by 69 runs (39 scored by Kanaga Subranian in a fine performance) took us to the semi-final in which Chennai was beaten by 50 runs.
In the finals against Kerala we batted first scoring 203 for 6 in our 30 overs. Kerala managed 131 for 9 giving us victory by 72 runs: a stunning result which won us the trophy.
Our batting was outstanding throughout the tournament but it was the strength of our bowling that devastated the opposition.
This superb performance was made possible by vigorous practice, the professional and dedicated coaching by our coach Mr. Rajasekaran, and the spirit and confidence of the players.
It was a moment of pride for all Jayendrans as our cricketers excelled and brought laurels to the school. Our principal, Management and staff felicitated the Coach, Players and Physical education department in the school assembly for their wonderful performance.
