Shillong, May 14: Laban Bengalee Boys Higher Secondary School won the Shillong Cricket Association’s U-18 Inter School League 2022-23 by 26 runs against All Saints’ School in the final here yesterday.

On winning the toss, Laban Bengalee Boys batted commandingly to post 132/4 in 15 overs, with a smashing 86 from 46 deliveries by Dipankar Barua, while Aditya bagged 2/24 for All Saints.

In reply, the latter were only able to make 107/8 in their 15 overs, with a top score of 43 from 35 by Manthan Dey.
