Cricket news - Karnataka lose winning streak as Baroda sneak 14-run win
Rajesh, Asfan heroics fail to rescue Bihar
After winning the toss in Vizianagaram, Bihar would have expected a better performance from their bowlers than conceding 202/4 in 20 overs, with commendable performances throughout the batting order from the Goa batsmen. The Bihar batting panicked early on and were reeling with just 38 runs and four wickets down, only to be rescued by a 99-run stand between Rahmatullah and Rajesh Singh. The dismissal of the former for 38 urged Rajesh to accelerate on his way to a valiant, but ultimately futile 28-ball 64. Asfan Khan gave the Goans a scare with an 11-ball 29, but ultimately fell comfortably short by 29 runs. Hemang Parab was the pick of the Goa bowlers, snaffling three of the top five batsmen.
Meriwala five-wicket haul triggers Karnataka brainfade
Meriwala's five-wicket haul triggered a Karnataka middle-order collapse which handed Baroda a fourteen-run win in Vizag. With the momentum clearly with Baroda in the beginning of the chase, after Yusuf Pathan and Vishnu Solanki clubbed 49 in the last 20 balls, Karnataka responded extremely well with Sasodia blazing away with a 21-ball 38 in an explosive fifty-run opening stand. Rohan Kadam's 86-run stand with Karun Nair ensured a stable middle-over period setting the platform for a Karnataka win. However, the wicket of Nair, courtesy Meriwala, triggered a dramatic collapse of 7 wickets for 37 runs. A late surge from Shreyas Gopal gave Baroda a scare, and Karnataka a sniff, but as it turned out, Meriwala did a mean finishing job too, picking up two lower-order wickets, knocking over Koushik off the final ball of his spell to end with an impressive 4-0-21-5.
Jharkhand minus Dhoni ace last-over chase
Chasing a target of 170 in Surat, Ishan Kishan and Anand Singh got off to too stable a start, scoring 43 in the first 7 overs. An 82-run stand between Tiwary and Virat Singh, came in 51 balls and set the chase up nicely. Saurabh Tiwary's dismissal brought about a bit of panic into the scene, as Deobrat got run-out in the final over, but it was well worth it as Virat Singh struck Sakaria for a boundary with three balls to spare and sealed a thrilling chase with two balls to spare.
Punjab ace truncated chase
At the sector-16 stadium in Punjab, the home team closed out a four-over chase courtesy Shubman Gill and Simran Singh, who ravaged through the Arunachal bowling for four overs before their anguish came to an end. Earlier, the top-order were rattled by Baltej Singh, who picked up three wickets, and the middle-order ran themselves out in a match reduced to eight-overs a side due to a wet outfield. The Arunachal side finished with a meagre 44/7, and Shubman Gill and Simran Singh made short work of the chase, racing to the target in half the allotted deliveries.
Pradeep hands Railways unlikely win
One would think that two seventies and a 124-run top-order stand between two Hyderabad stalwarts would be enough to set the opposition a high enough target, but with 48 to win from 18, and six wickets down, only Mohammed Ahmed could have guided Railways to an unlikely win. Little did the Hyderabad bowlers expect a whirlwind 12-ball 35 from the Railways No. 8, as they pulled off a last-ball heist, leaving the Government Model Senior Secondary School in delirium.
Nalkande five-for skittles UP for 60
Darshan Nalkande's five-for and some mindless batting by the batsmen skittled the Uttar Pradesh side for 60 in 14.4 overs in Trivandrum. After the new-ball bowlers made early inroads, picking up top-order wickets, Nalkande's introduction sped things up lower in the order, as he rolled over the middle and lower-order single-handedly, without any worthy resistance from the batsmen. Kuldeep Yadav knocked over Faiz Fazal early in Vidarbha's chase, but they chased down the total with relative ease in 7.5 overs, without losing a second wicket.
Mumbai ride on Suryakumar brilliance
With a relatively competitive 153 runs on the board, Haryana would have fancied their chances with the ball, provided they kept things tight. Things went according to the plan initially, but Mumbai skipper Suryakumar Yadav had other ideas. His violent, unbeaten 38-ball 81 was embellished with 11 fours and 3 sixes, taking a special liking to his counterpart, Amit Mishra, who returned hapless figures of 3-0-40-1. As a result, Mumbai sealed the chase with 26 balls to spare, courtesy Suryakumar Yadav's blazing knock, leaving Haryana shocked at the Wankhede.
