In probably the most one-sided contest you will ever see, IES VN Sule Guruji from Dadar took an outrageous 287-run lead after the first day's play in their three-day Mumbai Schools Sports Association (MSSA) Harris Shield contest on Tuesday.
The IES bowlers first ran through St Mary's ICSE, bowling them out for just 18, with Atharva Chavan, Shreyas Kemkar and Parab Heramb taking three wickets each. Then IES piled on the misery on their hapless opponents with Yash Bhojane and Kemkar scoring a century each, with the latter finishing unbeaten on 104.
Prithvi Shaw top-scored with 45 for Rizvi Springfield as they were bowled out for 184 against Swami Vivekanand. Ratnadeep Chavan starred with the ball, taking figures of 4/49 while Anish Chaudhary also was among the wickets, finishing with 3/58. Vivekanand in response finished the day on 131/4 with Pranav Bhatia having scored 45.
Maxwell Swaminathan led the charge for Fatima High School from Vidyavihar, though he wasn't provided much support by his teammates. Maxwell scored 45, while Fatima were bowled out for 163 against IES New English from Bandra. Bhavya Thakkar's 5/20 reduced Shardashram Vidyamandir Boys from Dadar to 57/9 after Swami Vivekanand from Kandivili had piled on 252 in their first innings. Umesh Sheth with 84 and Atharva Poojari with 55 were the main contributors with the bat. Shams Mulani was another star bowler, this time for Don Bosco High School as he ran amok through Oxford Public School's batting line-up, getting them all-out for 59 with figures of 6/16.
