Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 2022 Quarterfinals Results
Mumbai beats Saurashtra: Five required off the final over and it was panic in the Mumbai camp as Tanush Kotian took an unnecessary double only to fall short of his crease. Saurashtra kept fighting but Shivam Dube finishes things with a boundary and the relief on Ajinkya Rahane’s face says it all. Shreyas Iyer was the star with the bat with a 30-ball 40 but it was the late blitz from Shivam Dube who scored a 13-ball 25 and helped Mumbai seal a semifinal spot. Chetan Sakariya bowled brilliantly and took a four-wicket haul but it wasn’t enough as Saurashtra gets knocked out of the tournament.
Mumbai 132/6 vs Saurashtra: Back-to-back wickets and Saurashtra storm back into the game as Shreyas Iyer and Sarfaraz Khan fall in consecutive balls to leave Mumbai six down. Both batters had to stay to keep the Mumbai dugout relaxed but Saurashtra fighting every single ball and suddenly they sense they have an opportunity to knock out Mumbai. The next three overs will be very crucial. Nerves in Mumbai camp.
Mumbai 108/3 vs Saurashtra: Sairaj Patil and Shreyas Iyer have forged a partnership and this is vital from Mumbai’s point of view. The required rate has touched 10 while the current run rate is just above 7 rpo and that shouldn’t bother Mumbai much. With batsmen like Sarfaraz in the sheds, the Ajinkya Rahane-led Mumbai will be confident of gunning down the total. Iyer is timing the ball beautifully and has picked the bones out of a Chirag Jani slower one and dispatched it over the long-on region for a maximum.
Mumbai 58/3 vs Saurashtra: Huge wicket as Chirag Jani traps Ajinkya Rahane and Mumbai in a spot of bother. Length delivery, angling into the batsman, Rahane tried to play it on the leg side but missed the ball as the ball hit him flush on the pads and that was plumb. Shreyas Iyer is looking in good nick as he opened his account with a maximum but Mumbai needs a partnership. Sairaj Patil, the impact player, walks in with Mumbai needing 109 runs in 72 balls.
Mumbai 48/2 vs Saurashtra: Chetan Sakariya strikes again and he removes Jaiswal in a rather controversial fashion. Massive wicket in the context of the game as Shreyas Iyer joins Rahane. The Mumbai captain has dropped anchor and has the experience of bailing his team out of trouble. Saurashtra believes it can defend this total.
Mumbai 8/1 vs Saurashtra: Chetan Sakariya strikes and he gets the prized scalp of Prithvi Shaw and that’s a massive blow for Mumbai. Sakariya lured Shaw by bowling outside the off and the batsman went for the shot only to edge it to the keeper. Ajinkya Rahane is in the middle and it’s a golden opportunity for the Mumbai captain to make a statement and guide his team through. Yashasvi Jaiswal joins Rahane.
Saurashtra 166/8 vs Mumbai: Terrific from Mumbai as they have done extremely well to restrict Saurashtra to 166/8 with Tushar Deshpande picking a three-wicket hail and Mohit Avasthi taking a couple of important wickets. Mumbai applied the choke early with early wickets and took the momentum away from Saurashtra in the first 10 overs with their bowlers sticking to tight lines and not allowing the batsmen to open their arms. However, Prerak Mankad took the attack to the opposition and provided the impetus with a brilliant 25-ball 61 and along with Sheldon Jackson stitched a half-century stand to get the Saurashtra innings back on track. But on a good batting wicket with dew coming into play, Mumbai will facy knocking down the total and enter the semis.
Saurashtra 146/4 vs Mumbai: Prerak Mankad has smashed an unbeaten half-century and he has been rock solid with the bat, currently batting unbeaten on 56 off 22 balls while Sheldon Jackson is struggling to time the ball but has played the perfect foil to Mankad. The partnership is worth 74 and with Mankad in good rhythm, Saurashtra will aim a score something around 180.
Saurashtra 108/4 vs Mumbai: Prerak Mankad and Sheldon Jackson bring the 100 up for Saurashtra and the partnership is 42 off 28 deliveries and this is a vital one from Saurashtra’s point of view. Both batsmen have found their feet and with another 30 deliveries left, one of them have to go downtown and power Saurashtra to a challenging total.
Saurashtra 84/4 vs Mumbai: Saurashtra has been caught on the crease and there is absolutely no momentum as on a good batting track its batsmen have come under serious pressure, Sheldon Jackson is not able to break away from the schakles and Prerak Mankad has just found one boundary. Vishvaraj Jadeja was promoted up the order but the move didn’t work as Aman Khan dismissed him with the batsman hitting straight to Prithvi Shaw at mid-wicket. Mumbai’s ploy of bowling wicket to wicket has helped them keep the batsmen grounded and the regular strikes have dented Saurashtra.
Saurashtra 71/3 vs Mumbai: Mumbai has sucked the momentum away from Saurashtra and an excellent full-blooded dive by Yashashvi Jaiswal at deep mid-wicket packs off Samarth Vyas as Shivam Dube strikes. It’s the pressure of dot balls and lack of boundaries that forced Samarth to go for the big shot and credit to the Mumbai bowlers for bowling stump to stump and not allowing Saurastra to dominate. Visvaraj Jadeja joins Sheldon Jackson. Time for jailbreak.
Saurashtra 49/2 vs Mumbai: The game is evenly poised at the end of PowerPlay as Mumbai will be happy having packed off both the openers while Saurashtra hasn’t let the wickets affect the scoring rate. Mohit Avasthi dismissed Harvik and it’s the extra pace that troubled the batsmen. Short of a length delivery and Harvik decided to go for the pull but lacked the timing as the ball climbed on him and the opener ended up offering a simple catch to Tanush Kotian at mid-on. Sheldon Jackson is in the middle along with Samarth Vyas. It’s a good batting wicket and Saurashtra will look to put a solid total on board.
Saurashtra 45/1 vs Mumbai: Spin does the trick for Mumbai as Shams Mulani strikes to dismiss Cheteshwar Pujara, who chips down the track only to offer a simple catch to Ajinkya Rahane at mid-off. There was absolutely no pace in the delivery and Pujara had to reach for the ball and chipped it straight into the hands of Rahane. Mumbai strikes inside PowerPlay.
Saurashtra 21/0 vs Mumbai: Harvik Desai and Cheteshwar Pujara have given Saurashtra a fiery start with Mohit Avasthi and Tushar Deshpande operating with the new ball. Desai has taken most of the strike with Pujara happy to play the second fiddle.
Mumbai Playing XI: Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane(c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Sarfaraz Khan(w), Shams Mulani, Tanush Kotian, Tushar Deshpande, Aman Hakim Khan, Mohit Avasthi
Saurashtra Playing XI: Harvik Desai, Cheteshwar Pujara, Samarth Vyas, Sheldon Jackson(w), Prerak Mankad, Chirag Jani, Jaydev Unadkat(c), Jay Gohil, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, Chetan Sakariya, Kushang Patel
Himachal stuns Bengal: Vashisht and Gangta slammed half-centuries as Vidarbha stunned Bengal to enter the semifinals of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. Chasing 200 runs to win, Vashisht made an unbeaten 76 off 42 balls and Gangta made a match-winning 50 off 37 balls to win the match by four wickets.
Vidarbha wins thriller, beats Delhi by 1 run: Yash Thakur bowls a brilliant last over and concedes just 8 runs from his final over as Vidarbha ekes out a thrilling one-run victory over Delhi to storm into the semifinals. Vidarbha skipper Akshay Wadkar led from the front with a timely knock of 63 off 53 balls as Delhi did well to restrict Vidarbha to 157/5. Shikhar Dhawan and Himmat Singh gave Delhi a good start but Yash Thakur played the role of wrecker-in-chief with a four-wicket haul (4-0-29-4) to knockout Delhi out of the tournament.
Punjab beats Karnataka by 9 runs: Shubman Gill stars with a scintillating century as Punjab defeated Karnataka by nine runs to qualify for the semifinals. Abhinav Manohar hammered an unbeaten 62 off just 29 balls and kept Karnataka alive in a tall run chase but the Punjab unit survived a scare to book a spot in the semifinal.
Karnataka 105/3 vs Punjab: Ramandeep Singh breaks the stand and that’s the breakthrough that Punjab was eyeing. He removes the dangerous Manish Pandey, who departs for a 29-ball 45. Karnataka suffers a double blow as Chethan smokes Ramandeep for a maximum and the right-arm medium pacer comes up with a superb reply as he dismisses the batsman to leave Karnataka five down. Needs 121 runs in 42 balls.
Karnataka 68/3 vs Punjab: Manish Pandey and L Chethan have forged a 40-run partnership and the 50-up for Karnataka. The current run-rate is 8.4 rpo while the required rate is 13.04 and this is going to be a huge task for Karnataka. Punjab gunning for wickets as they know a couple of wickets will clear their passage to the semifinals.
Karnataka 20/3 vs Punjab: Punjab bossing the match and having posted a mammoth total on board, its bowlers have given a perfect start having reduced Karnataka to 18/3 inside the PowerPlay. Skipper Mayank Agarwal falls cheaply while Rohan Patil was caught well short of his crease while trying to steal a single. Wicketkeeper Luvnith Sisodia fell to Baltej Singh to leave Karnataka in the doldrums. The experienced Manish Pandey is out in the middle and he has to play a blinder of an innings to help Karnataka extend its stay in the tournament.
Our Correspondent Y.B. Sarangi with an update from Eden Gardens: Scouts from several IPL teams are watching the players keenly.
Punjab 225/4 vs Karnataka: Punjab rode on Shubman Gill’s maiden T20 century to post a mammoth 225/4 in 20 overs and the India international stamped his authority against Karnataka. Punjab started in poor fashion by losing two quick wickets but Gill along with Anmolpreet Singh forged a 151-stand for the third wicket and took the attack to the opposition. Gill was severe especially on the spinners as the opener hammered 11 boundaries and nine maximums striking at 229.09. Anmolpreet did play his part with a fine half-century. For Karnataka Vidhwath KLaverappa was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets.
Punjab 188/3 vs Karnataka: Shubman Gill has slammed a brilliant century off just 49 deliveries - his maiden T20 hundred - and his knock is stitched with 11 hits to the fence and six sixes at a strike rate of 214.00. That explains how the Punjab opener has toyed with the Karnataka attack en route to his century. Punjab going really strong and is eyeing to post a score in excess of 200. Gill has dismantled the attack and has treated the spinners with utter disdain.
Punjab 152/2 vs Karnataka: Anmolpreet Singh brings up his half-century and along with Shubman Gill is just dealing in boundaries. The partnership is 142 off just 77 balls and Karnataka bowlers have got no answers. The duo has looted 72 runs in the last five overs and Shubman Gill is going at a strike rate of 200.00. They are simply toying with the opposition bowlers on a batsman friendly wicket.
Punjab 121/2 vs Karnataka: Shubman Gill has come to the party and that’s an excellent half-century and the Punjab opener has held the innings together. After suffering an early setback, Punjab is back on track with Gill smashing a half-century and along with Anmolpreet Singh forging an unbeaten 100-run partnership. On a good batting track, Gill has paced his innings beautifully with five boundaries and two sixes and the fast outfield complementing the batsmen. The spinners have been taken to the cleaners with J Suchith and K Gowtham leaking runs. Excellent batting from the Punjab batsmen.
Punjab 70/2 vs Karnataka: The recovery is done and both Shubman Gill and Anmolpreet Singh have found their feet and have forged a brilliant fifty-run stand off 36 balls. In the last five overs, over 40 runs have come and both batsmen have played shots on either side of the wicket. On a good batting track, Gill has been impressive by playing on the up with Anmolpreet dancing down the track to get in the odd boundary. The running between the wickets has been excellent and the run-rate is over seven runs per over. Punjab on the attack.
Punjab 48/2 vs Karnataka: Shubman Gill has taken charge and has announced his arrival with a superb six over the mid-wicket before getting his wrists into play with an excellent flick to the boundary. It’s a slow start from Punjab and understandably so as they lost two quick wickets. It’s over to Anmolpreet Singh and Shubman Gill. Karnataka on the other hand are on attacking mode with their fast bowlers testing the bowlers with pace and extracting a bit of bounce from the Eden surface. There’s a fair bit of green but that shouldn’t bother the batsmen much. End of PowerPlay.
Karnataka 19/2 vs Punjab: Vidhwath Kaverappa picks his second wicket and this time the fast bowler removes the in-form Prabhsimran Singh - courtesy of an excellent catch from K Gowtham. The batsman closed the face of the bat tad early on a length delivery, the ball takes the leading edge and the ball was almost dying but Goutham puts in the dive, and gets his fingers underneath the ball and Karnataka is thrilled and Mayank Agarwal’s decision to bowl first after winning the toss has paid dividends. Punjab under the pump.
Punjab 8/1 vs Karnataka: Vidhwath Kaverappa strikes early for Karnataka as he removes Abhishek Sharma who falls after opening his account with a boundary. The batsman however fell while trying to guide the ball to fine leg, only managing a nick to the wicket-keeeper. Early breakthrough for Karnataka. Prabhsimran Singh joins Shubman Gill.
Karnataka Playing XI: LR Chethan, Mayank Agarwal(c), Luvnith Sisodia(w), Manish Pandey, Abhinav Manohar, Manoj Bhandage, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jagadeesha Suchith, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Vidhwath Kaverappa, Vasuki Koushik
Punjab Playing XI: Shubman Gill, Abhishek Sharma, Prabhsimran Singh(w), Sanvir Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Mandeep Singh(c), Anmolpreet Singh, Harpreet Brar, Mayank Markande, Baltej Singh, Siddarth Kaul
