BC wins Jack Kyle trophy

British Columbia U19s won the 2019 edition of the Jack Kyle Under-19 Cup winning twice against each of Alberta U19s and Saskatchewan U19s at Edmonton’s Victoria Park on May 18 and 19. Saskatchewan came second thanks to winning both matches against Alberta U19s.
Saskatchewan U19s made just 95 all out in the opening game of the tournament, the innings fizzled out as Jamison Schulz-Franco grabbed 4 wickets for just 6 runs from 2.5 overs. BC went on to reach a winning 97/6 after 15.1 overs.
Saskatchewan then posted 138/7 against Alberta, a total that proved the highest of the tournament. The total was based on useful contributions by Ahsan Ali (38 runs), Adhil Chatha (35) and Malya Parik (29). Alberta replied with 120/9, losing by 18 runs. Adil Chatha took 3 wickets for just 8 runs from 4 overs and Arbab Anwar Khan grabbed 3 for 17 from 4 overs to thwart the batting efforts of Navi Thandi (38) and Hassan Iqbal (20).
Alberta U19s, as it turned out, came closest to beating British Columbia in the last game on Saturday. BC hit 129/7 from 20 overs but did just enough to defeat the efforts of Navi Thandi who struck 49* of Alberta’s 126/7 when the 20 overs ran out. BC won by 3 runs. Arshdeep Dhaliwal chipped in with 29 for Alberta while three batters reached the 20’s and 30s for BC: Jamison Schulz-Franco 33, Kartik Joshi 25, Gurnek Singh Johal 23.
British Columbia U19s beat Saskatchewan U19s by 48 runs in the opening game on Sunday, then repeated the Saturday score of 129/7 from 20 overs against Alberta U19s. This time Alberta was held to 101/8, so BC won by 28 runs.
Udaybir Singh Walia made 25 and Kartik Joshi 23 as BC U19’s reached the 6 runs per over mark with 121 all out from 19.4 overs against Saskatchewan. Hasnan Ahmed was the only batter to break the 20-run mark with 21 as Saskatchewan stumbled to 73 all out after 73 overs. Utkarsh Davan took 3 wickets for 17 runs in 3.3 overs to wrap up the game.
Udaybir Singh Walia then top-scored with 35* as BC U19’s posted 129/7 from 20 overs for the second time in this competition against Alberta U19s. Kartik Joshi made a useful 29 for BC. Navi Thandi continued to lead Alberta’s batting, this time making 32* but despite help with 21 runs from Taimoor Shahzad, Alberta just crossed the century mark with 101/8 (20 overs) and lost by 28 runs.
Alberta’s innings progressed at a faster rate in the last game against Saskatchewan. Kunwar Channa tallied 27 and Taimoor Shahzad 25 but the innings folded quickly as Fahad Javed picked up 3 wickets for 7 runs in just 1,3 overs. Malya Parik lead with 30 as Saskatchewan moved to a winning 105/4 after 12.3 overs. Alberta’s innings had ended on 104 all out from 13.3 overs.
So Saskatchewan U19s won both games against Alberta U19s to take second place behind unbeaten British Columbia U19s. Alberta U19s came close in the first game against BC, losing by just 3 runs, but ended with what must have been a disappointing 4 losses from 4 games.
