Jadhav, Nadeem star for India B in Deodhar Trophy title win
Ranchi: Kedar Jadhav conjured up a well-calculated 86-run knock before left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem claimed four wickets as India B lifted the Deodhar Trophy with a comprehensive 51-run win over India C in the final here today. Electing to bat, India B recovered from early jolts to post a competitive 283/7, courtesy fifties by Jadhav and Yashasvi Jaiswal (54), and a 33-ball 45 from Vijay Shankar down the order. Shankar smashed four boundaries and two sixes in his innings before falling to Porel. The bowlers, led by Shahbaz Nadeem (4/32) and Mohammed Siraj (2/43), then joined the party as India B restricted India C to 231/9 to complete the victory.
Brief scores: India B: 283/7 (Jadhav 86, Jaiswal 54, Shankar 45, Gowtham 35*; Porel 5/43); India C: 232/9 (Garg 74, Axar 38; Nadeem 4/32, Siraj 2/43). — PTI
