Good show by Shriram for Egmore RC

Chennai: Leg-spinner C Shriram’s five for 59 paved the way for Egmore Recreation Club’s 37-run win over Krishnaraj Memorial Club in the TNCA Lower Division League.

Krishnaraj MC’s J Surendar’s five for 34 helped restrict Egmore RC to 182. But his effort went in vain as his team was bowled out for 145 with none of the frontline batsmen making any considerable contribution.
