Karnataka continue their winning run at Vijay Hazare cricket tournament !!!

Karnataka continued their unbeaten run at Vijay Hazare cricket tournament by beating Chhattisgarh by 3 wickets.

Opting to bat first, Chhattisgarh had a terrible start as they where reeling at 39 for 3 after 11 overs. But contributions from Abhimanyu Chauhan, Kaif and Khare helped Chhattisgarh to set a target of 200 runs for Karnataka. Vinay Kumar was the stand out bowler for Karnataka as he picked 3 crucial wickets and ensured Chattisgarh does not get any easy runs with some tight bowling. He finished with figures of 3 for 19 in 9 overs. Prasidh Krishna, who has been the highest wicket taker for Karnataka in this tournament also supported Vinay Kumar by picking up 2 wickets. Binny, Ronit More, Shreyas Gopal and Gowtham all picked up a wicket each.

But with a strong batting unit 200 runs was not a very challenging total for Karnataka as they managed to chase down the target in 37.3 overs with 3 wickets in hand.

From the batting point of view, the highly consistent Karnataka opener Mayank Agarwal continued his rich form as he managed to score his second fifty of the tournament. He scored 66 runs of 76 balls and the innings included 12 boundaries (4's). Manish Pandey, the Karnataka skipper provided good support as he managed to score 34 runs of 40 balls. SV Thakur was the most impressive bowler for Chhattisgarh as he finished with figures of 3 for 38 in 8 overs.
