Aryan Reddy Shines But Oakridge Has The Last Laugh
In a recently held U-19 game between Oakridge International School and Little Scholar School, the former came out on top. 14 Year old Aryan Reddy had an incredible game but unfortunately lost out.
Batting first, Oakridge set a steep target of 338 in 50 overs as one-down batter Vasu Dev Sahoo scored an astonishing 94 off just 90 deliveries. He was supported by opener Aarush Paruchuri who got a half century to his name. Small but crucial contributions from other batsman propelled the total to 338. Reddy bowled economically and got 3 wickets too for Little Scholar. Abdul Rahman, Mandala Samridh and Azhar Sneith picked two wickets each.
Just as with the ball, Aryan stood apart with the bat. Scoring an impressive 112 off 124, Reddy dominated as he opened the innings. Hrishikesh Vemagal acted as his wingman scoring 54. Apart from these two, no other batsman even reached double digits. Little Scholar only managed 202 as Oakridge win by 136 runs.
Star of the game, Aryan is currently competing for a place in the Hyderabad U-16 State Team. With supreme domination in HCA U-19, it certainly pushes his case.
