Mumbai: Rest of India under-19 trounced the visiting England team by ten wickets to win on the last day of the match being played at the MIG club ground here on Saturday. Dharmi Chand (7 for 65), the Karnataka off spinner was the strike bowler aptly supported by Kashinath Khadkikar, who sent the English batsmen back to pavilion and the host batsmen found it child's play to overtake the 44-runs lead in a mere 11.3 overs.Starting off from where they left on Friday (11 for 2 off 8 overs), the English visitors, fighting the 111-run first inning lead, lost wickets at regular intervals and could make a meagre 155 runs in their second innings in 254 minutes of play in 68.2 overs.Chand proved to be their nemesis as he struck the first blow for the day, when the scoreboard showed 25 runs and John Saddler and Ian Bell were on the crease. England were already two wickets down for 11 runs when they started the days play and Saddler (8) was the first to go. Thereafter none of the Englishmen could show enough grit to remain on the wicket and get runs for their team. Chand ended up with figures of 7 for 65 in his 26.2 overs whileKhadkikar was 3 for 35 in 21 overs. For the Englishmen, Robert Ferley was the top scorer with 33 runs followed by Bell (29) and Ian Pattison (25). The Rest batsmen bundled the 45-run lead in 11.3 overs without having an extra run for support. ArindamDas (22) and Gagan Inder Singh (24) remained not out at the end of play to give the Indian boys the victory. UNI
