Newlook Central Railways,comprising promising juniors like Amit Kumar and Arun Bani and Fardeen Khan demonstrated enough skill as they routed Wellingdon YMCA 84-28 in their group C tie of the Mastan YMCA Basketball tournament,at their courts at Nagpada today. The trio were at the forefront and were very effective in their attacking mode as time and again they shot baskets at regular intervals,which left their rivals defence in disarray right from the first quarter to the final fourth.
Not long age,Central Railway were the most feared side with star internationals in their ranks,but after the departure of their stars players,Central Railway inducted some talented juniors and hoped that these talented juniors would keep Central Railways flag flying high. And today they did enough to show their talent and skill which augurs well for the railways outfit.
