Two weeks ago, the Harvard cricket club took only an hour to be bowled out for 55 runs.
Last Saturday on Soldiers Field, the Crimson again was at bat for about an hour. But that's all the time it needed to overtake MIT's score of 59 runs for 10 wickets taken. In fact, Harvard scored its 60 runs without loss of a wicket.
It just wasn't MIT's day. The Engineers' main partnership of Salman Chaudhary and Nasser Ahmad--a duo that had scored 91 runs two weeks ago--lasted for only one run this time.
Meanwhile, Harvard's fielding was quite impressive. A highlight of the action was Crimson wicketkeeper Craig Ewington's lightning-quick stump on Chaudhary.
Meanwhile, senior Clyvan Belle and freshman Ali Agha were bowling very good Harvard innings, keeping the ball inside on the leg stump.
After five MIT wickets had been taken, the Crimson sent up Shubham Chaudhuri to bowl. In his five overs of work, he took four of the last five wickets, giving up 16 runs.
