Cricket news - Sandeep 7-fer sinks Haryana; lifts Punjab to the top
Punjab vs Haryana
To say that the pacers dominated proceedings at the Moti Bagh Stadium in Vadodara would be an understatement. The game lasted only 31.2 overs altogether, but it witnessed the fall of 17 wickets in a low-scoring affair. Haryana, after opting to bat, were skittled for a paltry total of 49. Only two of their batsmen managed to get to double-digits and as many as five bagging a duck. The new ball bowlers - Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma - accounted for all the ten wickets. The latter bowled eight overs on the bounce and finished with spectacular figures 8-2-17-7. The final pair added 13 runs - highest of the innings - before getting bundled out.
Punjab's chase wasn't smooth either. Barring Abhishek Sharma, the unbeaten opener and top-scorer, none of their batsmen went past single-digits. Despite losing wickets regularly - courtesy Ajit Chahal's four-fer - Punjab managed to get past the winning line in the 16th over.
Brief scores: Haryana 49 in 16.1 overs (Nitin Saini 22; Sandeep Sharma 7-19, Siddarth Kaul 3-29) lost to Punjab 50/7 in 15.1 overs (Abhishek Sharma 22*; Ajit Chahal 4-32) by 3 wickets.
Tamil Nadu vs Tripura
Tamil Nadu kept their winning streak intact by registering their sixth successive win of the tournament. It was an all-round performance from Dinesh Karthik's men as they inflicted a heavy loss on Tripura at Jaipur. After opting to bat, the top-order duo of Abhinav Mukund and Baba Aparajith notched up their respective half-centuries. The cameos from skipper Karthik and Murugan Ashwin powered TN to a score in excess of 300. Chasing a stiff target, four of the top five Tripura batsmen got into the twenties, but none managed to kick on. All the five Tamil Nadu bowlers were amongst wickets as Tripura folded out in the 35th over.
Brief scores: Tamil Nadu 315/8 in 50 overs (Baba Aparajith 87, Abhinav Mukund 84; Ajoy Sarkar 3-51) beat Tripura 128 in 34.3 overs (Pratyush Singh 24, Milind Kumar 24; T Natarajan 3-22) by 187 runs.
Services vs Jammu and Kashmir
Services hardly broke any sweat as they romped home with a 7-wicket win over Jammu and Kashmir. Despite getting starts, the top and middle order Jammu and Kashmir batsmen couldn't kick on and hence were bowled out for 189. Chasing a below-par score, Services lost their openers cheaply. However, Gahlaut Rahul Singh ensured that his opponents weren't given a sniff. The southpaw was involved in a match-winning 132-run partnership with skipper Rajat Paliwal en route to an unbeaten century. Services hunted down the target with 94 balls to spare.
Brief scores: Jammu and Kashmir 189 in 48.3 overs (Paras Sharma 49; Diwesh Pathania 4-39) lost to Services 190/3 in 34.2 overs (Gahlaut Rahul Singh 124*, Rajat Paliwal 49; Ram Dayal 1-15) by 7 wickets.
Railways vs Rajasthan
In a thrilling game at the Jaipuria Vidyalaya Ground in Jaipur, Rajasthan managed to tie with Railways. Arjit Gupta found little support in his knock of 90 board as the hosts were bowled for a below-par score of 206. Railways didn't get off to an auspicious start as Abhimanyu Lamba ran riot with the new ball. The 23-year-old pacer nipped out the top four Railways' batters and reduced them to 28 for 4 in the 12th over. However, the visitors staged a comeback - thanks to a fighting knock from Dinesh Mor. The wicketkeeper-batsman was involved in a couple of half-ton partnerships for the fifth and sixth wickets respectively. Despite the fall of wickets at the other end, Mor remained unbeaten and took the game deep. However, with one run needed off the last delivery, Pradeep was run-out and the game ended in a stalemate.
Brief scores: Rajasthan 206 in 47.4 overs (Arjit Gupta 90; Himanshu Sangwan 4-44) tied withRailways 206/8 in 50 overs (Dinesh Mor 92, Karn Sharma 31; Abhimanyu Lamba 4-15).
