India B 231/9 (50)

05:00 pm: Hanuma Vihari once again came to the rescue with a poised 76 to help India B recover and post a decent total of 231/9. India C in reply kept losing wickets at regular intervals to be bowled out for 201 in 48.2 overs. Spinner Krishnappa Goutham and part-timer Manoj Tiwary turned the match in India B's favour as they shared six wickets among themselves.

04:45 pm: India B beats India C by 30 runs.

4:40 pm: WICKET! Jaydev Unadkat strikes to remove Navdeep Saini as India C loses its ninth wicket. India B favourites to win from here. India C needs 31 runs in 12 balls with one wicket in hand.

4:30: Washington Sundar and Navdeep Saini are trying their best by keeping the India B bowlers at bay. India C requires 36 runs in 24 balls. 

4:20 pm: India C 180/8 in 43.4 overs

4:00 pm: Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav depart as India B is chipping away.   India C 158/7 chasing 232.

3:48 pm: Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav hold the key as India C requires 83 runs in 84 balls. Should be an interesting chase if the duo hang in.

2:41 pm: WICKET! Krishnappa Gowtham picks his second wicket as Suresh Raina departs. Raina charges down the track, goes for a wild swing but misses it completely as the ball sneaks under his bat to castle the stumps. Poor shot selection. India C in a spot of bother having lost its third wicket. India C 74/3 in 21.1 overs.

2:32 pm: WICKET! Krishnappa Gowtham breaks the stand as he gets India C skipper Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane did all the hard work but plays a rather uncharacteristic shot as he hits straight into the hands of Manoj Tiwary at covers. India C 65/2 at the end of 19 overs.

2:27 pm: India C 60/1 in 18 overs

2.00 pm: After 12 overs, India C is struggling at 32/1. The B bowlers have done well upfront to contain Rahane.

R Samarth c Agarwal b Chahar 5 (19)

India C 21/1 (8.4)

1.45 pm: Earlier in the day, Vihari displayed his class and confidence with a second consecutive half-century in the tournament. His footwork and shot selection improved after a stint with Team India in Tests.

1.40 pm: Rahane and Samarth are taking it slow and playing sensible cricket. There is absolutely no need to hurry and worry as the target is very much achievable if wickets don't tumble. This is a good testing ground for Rahane as a limited-overs player.

1.30 pm: FOUR! First boundary for India C off Rahane's blade. What a lovely timing! FOUR! Rahane is slowly trying to break free. This time, off Nadeem.

India C 12-0 (4.5)

1.22 pm: Deepak Chahar keeps it tight as well. One off the second over too.

1.15 pm: Skipper Ajinkya Rahane and Ravikumar Samarth are out in the middle. This should be an easy chase for India C.

Shahbaz Nadeem bowls a tight first over, only one run off it.

India C 1/0 (1.0)

12.42 pm: Nadeem and Unadkat stitched a 36-run stand for the last wicket that helped India B to 231/9 in 50 overs.

12.28 pm: Pappu Roy has been the pick of the bowlers this morning. What a lovely spell by the 23-year-old left-arm orthodox bowler. His cricketing journey is one inspirational tale.

12.15 pm: OUT! Kishan plucks a low offering as Vihari edges a Gurbani delivery.

H. Vihari c Kishan b Gurbani 76 (94) 4s 6

India B 195-9 (44.4)

11.18 am: 50 for Hanuma Vihari. India B 140/5 in 32 overs.

11.10 am: Suresh Raina has been handed the ball. He could be the breakthrough man for India C. Vihari is using his feet well against the spinners and looking set for another fifty. He is batting on 47.

India B 131/5 (30)

India B

10.51 am: Vihari is turning out to be the crisis man again. The right-hander has moved to 31 off 37 balls.

India B 90/5 (19.4)

10.24 am: OUT! Roy cleans up Tiwary 16 (18) 4s 1 6s 1

The Vihari-Tiwary pair added 99 runs for the fourth wicket yesterday, before a mix-up turned the tide. They looked set for another one today. Good presence of mind from Roy to attack Tiwary's exposed off-stump.

India B 87-4 (18.3)


9.59 am: WICKET! Pappu Roy gets rid of the dangerous Iyer, caught behind by Ishan Kishan.

India B 47/2 (10)

9.45 am: Rahane has quite a few bowling options in Vijay Shankar, Washington Sundar and Pappu Roy.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer is in .

P Chopra b Gurbani 17 (26) 4s 3

India B 40/1 (8)

9.22 am: Agarwal is literally punishing Saini. Two consecutive boundaries takes the right-hander to 19 off 13 balls.

9.18 am: India B is scoring at six-an over. You trust Agarwal to keep the scoreboard ticking. He has been in form and is a delight to watch.

India B 24/0 (4.0)

9.14 am: Mukund, Rahul Chahar and Umar Nazir are sitting out today for India C. On the other hand, India B have rested Varun Aaron, Rituraj Gaikwad and Mayank Markande.

9.08 am: There is apparently a bit of bounce on the wicket, uncanny for Kotla. But it looks like a good batting track and batting first is perhaps the right decision. The wicket may slow down a bit in the second innings.

9.03 am: Mayank Agarwal, who provided a solid start to India B yesterday, will look to continue the good run. Prashant Chopra is his new opening partner.

Navdeep Saini bowled an expensive first over, conceded eight runs. Rajneesh Gurbani to start from the other end now.

India B 8/0 (1.0)
