J&K Bank Academy take on SCFA Srinagar today at TRC
SRINAGAR: The inclement weather conditions in the Kashmir division brought major relief to the natives as they were battling an unexpected temperature rise early in the year while on the other hand, incessant rains in the past 24 hours left most of the playfield and stadiums soggy due to which 2nd semi-final of Spring Shield Cricket Tournament being held in Nanil, Anantnag and Tennis Ball Cricket tournament matches scheduled to be held in Khrew, Pulwama on Thursday was rescheduled for today.
Meanwhile, Pahalgam Blues registered their entry into the final of the Spring Shield T20 Cricket Tournament on Wednesday, trouncing Seer XI by 5 wickets.
The second clash for the entry to the summit between BSM Mattan and GSM Mattan scheduled for Thursday was postponed due to wet soggy outfield and inclement weather conditions. Both the teams had reported on the ground and umpires after inspecting the outfield decided to call off the match for the day not before rescheduling the game for tomorrow.
Similarly, the Tennis Ball Cricket event slated to be held in Khrew Play Field was also called off and postponed till today.
Meanwhile, in the ongoing JKSC Youth Football League, two matches were played at TRC Synthetic Turf Football Stadium in Srinagar on Wednesday.
In the first match, JK Bank Academy defeated Bandipora Academy by 2-1, and in the second match, SCFA Srinagar outplayed Baramulla Football Academy by 2-0.
With these wins, J&K Bank Academy occupies the second spot in the points table with 4 points following SCFA Srinagar which has maintained its position at the top of the table with 6 points.
Both teams will face each other in a do-or-die match on Friday. The game is a must-win for J&K Bank Academy whereas a draw will earn SCFA Srinagar the long-battled Youth League Championship. The match is expected to go down the wire and is reckoned to be one of the best contests in the league.
All the events are being organised by J&K Sports Council under a special sports initiative under the banner of “My Youth My Pride”.
