Format: 35 Overs
After a great UK tour, attention turned once again to Île de France fixtures and the away game against Chantilly. Having enjoyed a victory in the same fixture last year, the squad travelled to the match hoping for a similar result. After electing to bat first, Standard posted a very competitive score of 313 for the loss of just two wickets, which set them up superbly for repeating last year’s win. Top scorers included Shaunak with 69 runs, Dilip with 53 runs and Nishant with a quick-fire 58 runs off just 30 deliveries.
In return, Chantilly mustered 185 runs all out from 32 overs, with Praneeth, Shakeel and Nishant all amongst the wickets. The result meant that SAC have recorded back-to-back away victories over Chantilly over the last two seasons.
The result – a 128-run victory for Standard Athletic CC
