As India, Rajvardhan Hangargekar scores five wicket and Sai Sudharsan hits a tonne. Pakistan A are defeated by 8 wickets.

When Pakistan batted first, they were all out for 205 in 48 overs thanks to Hangargekar’s five for forty-two in eight overs, and Sudharsan’s unbeaten 104 off 110 deliveries, which made sure that the modest mark was attained in 36.4 overs.

Sai Sudharsan, a young batting prodigy, scored an incredibly exquisite hundred to go along with bowler Rajvardhan Hangargekar’s five-wicket haul as India A defeated Pakistan A by eight wickets on Wednesday to finish the league round of the Emerging Asia Cup with an undefeated record.

 

When Pakistan batted first, they were all out for 205 in 48 overs thanks to Hangargekar’s five for forty-two in eight overs, and Sudharsan’s unbeaten 104 off 110 deliveries, which made sure that the modest mark was attained in 36.4 overs.

 

 

In order to complete his fourth List A hundred, Sudharsan pulled veteran Pakistan squad pacer Shahnawaz Dahani before lofting him for back-to-back sixes.

In addition to three sixes, Sudharsan, who played against Nepal the previous evening, hit 10 other boundaries. Once he was in position, his driving on both sides of the wicket was majestic. His nearly 40 singles, which he used to keep the strike rotation going, were his best at-bat.

 

Credit must go to captain Yash Dhull (21 not out off 19 balls), who gave Sudharsan the majority of the strike during their 53-run stand and allowed him to go for the milestone.

 

In order to win the match and reach his century, Sudharsan struck Dahani for a beautiful six over extra cover.

“I was concentrating more on safe runs. decreasing dot balls and concentrating on ones and twos. It was a dangerous and difficult wicket to bat on against spinners. It was preferable to face fast bowlers, Sudharsan said following the game.

 

No Pakistani batter even reached the fifty-run mark, therefore Hangargekar and left-arm spinner Manav Suthar (3/36 in 10 overs) deserve equal credit for limiting Pakistan’s batting.

 

The Pakistani team’s total would not have attained the final appearance of respectability if Qasim Akram (48) and Mubasir Khan (28), who combined 53 for the seventh wicket, hadn’t been able to help.

 

The hulking Maharashtra man, Hangargekar, bowls back of the length stuff with sporadic larger deliveries that work. The top order batsmen found it challenging to drive on the up since the pace is in the neighbourhood of 140 clicks.

 

The Rajasthani guy SutHar too changed up his tempo and made effective use of the loop to collect his fair share of dismissals.
