Maharashtra has had an imperious campaign thus far with two wins in as many games. Their game resulted in a 57-run win over defending champions Karnataka in a rain-curtailed encounter.
Ankit Bawne (104) and skipper Rahul Tripathi’s 68-ball-70 was at the heart of Maharashtra’s win with the bat as the duo in face of no substantial support from any of the other batsmen, put on a 112-run stand to help their side post-8-245 after 50 overs.
Chasing 246, Sanklecha (1-27) and Samad Fallah (1-19) accounted for the dangerous Ravikumar Samarth (17) and Mayank Agarwal (12) cheaply to take the wind out of the chase and set up a 57 run win for Maharashtra via VJD method.
Punjab, meanwhile, rode on Shubhman Gill’s belligerent 115 to notch up a comprehensive 35-run win in their opening encounter against Himachal Pradesh. Defending 291, Siddarth Kaul was the pick of the bowlers as he claimed a four-wicket haul including the all-important scalp of Prashant Chopra, who scored a 122-ball-95 to keep HP afloat in the chase.
