The third day of the tournament was not fruitful as the dismal performance by the school team dampened the spirit to some extent. At the formal dinner hosted for all the teams, The Principal, Dr Madhav Deo Saraswat cheered them and motivated them not to lose hope in future. He was engrossed in serious discussions with the cricket team. It did lift the spirit of the team and by dinner time they appeared to be a bit relaxed.
