Kedar Jadahv leads India B to Deodhar Trophy; Shubhman Gill breaks Virat Kohli's 10-year record
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 on Monday.
Electing to bat, India B recovered from early jolts to post a competitive 283 for 7, courtesy well-compiled fifties by Jadhav and Yashasvi Jaiswal (54) and a 33-ball 45 from Vijay Shankar down the order.
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 for 9 to complete the victory.
Gill breaks Kohli’s record
India C lost skipper, Shubman Gill (1), who became the youngest captain to lead a side in the Deodhar Trophy final, surpassing Virat Kohli’s 10-year-old record.
After Gill’s departure, Mayank Agarwal (28) and Priyam Garg (74) added 54 runs before the opener was sent back by Nadeem in the 12th over.
In the next over, Virat Singh, who had scored a superb 76 in the last match, was run out by Ruturaj Gaikwad and Axar Patel, while Suryakumar Yadav too couldn’t reach double figures after being bowled by Nadeem in the 16th over.
Dinesh Karthik (3) also disappointed as his stay lasted only 10 balls with India C slumping to 77 for five in the 18th over.
Jajal stays unbeaten
Last match’s hero Axar Patel then joined hands with Garg and shared 63 runs. However, Garg became a victim of Siraj after he tried to play a big shot only to see his stumps disturbed.
Once Patel walked back to the hut in the 35th over, it seemed all over for India C. Jalaj S Saxena (36 not out) and Mayank Markande (27) took the team across the 200-mark but scoring at more than 10 runs an over in the remaining over proved too tall a task for the tail-enders as India C ended their innings at 232 for 9.
