U-15s Rise To The Occasion

Bahrain’s Karan Kumar batting against Oman

The 2005 ACC U-15 Cup opened with three matches in the UAE yesterday. All the matches featured excellent performances from the schoolboys, all of whom are playing at the highest level of their careers so far.

The UAE beat Maldives, Nepal beat Qatar and Bahrain beat Oman yesterday.

Conditions – in the mid 90s Fahrenheit – haven’t been easy, particularly for the sides bowling second, but they have coped tremendously well. K.K.Haridas, ACC Event Assistant comments, “the standard of play has been very good, with the fielding in particular being outstanding.”
