The Jayendra Cricket Academy T20 Tournament was held this year between from 23 to 26 January.
Eight teams took part in the competition which was held at the India Cements Ground. We are very fortunate to able to use this excellent ground with its grass wicket. Even the grass on the outfield was in very good condition which meant the braver fielders could dive. This led to some agressive fielding and exciting matches.
In the first round the Jayendra team beat Francis Xavier’s by 4 wickets which qualified us for the semi – finals where we beat St. John’s Kalakad by 72 runs.
In the final against Bell School they won the toss and opted to field. Jayendra scored 115 in their 20 overs and Bell could only manage 82 – so a good win by 33 runs.
Two Jayendrans got special mentions: the man of the match was won by S Siva Namachivayam and G Sriram got the most promising player award.
