Ajay's fiery ton spurs India to win

Bangalore, Dec 4, 2012 dhns:

India further cemented their status as the tournament favourites with a brilliant win against a poorly prepared English team in the T20 World Cup for the Blind at the Central College Grounds on Monday.

Riding on the back of blind cricket’s fastest century from Ajay Kumar Reddy (131, 48 balls) and a captain’s knock from Shekar Naik (134 n.o.), India scored 325 for three and then reduced England to 151 for seven in the allotted 20 overs. Reddy’s hundred came off 34 balls.

The story of the day, however, was vice-captain Ajay. After his breathtaking century that included 23 hits to the fence, the right-hander returned to the field to torment the opponents some more as he scalped a couple of wickets to round of a good day at the office.


Brief scores: India: 325/3 in 20 overs (Shekar Naik 134 n.o., Ajay Kumar Reddy 131) bt England: 151/7 in 20 overs (Luke Sugg 48, Hassan Khan 32; Ajay Kumar Reddy 2-17, Subash Bhoya 2-35); Sri Lanka: 314/3 in 20 overs (Ravindra 134, Deshapriya 75) bt Nepal: 137/6 in 20 overs;

Pakistan: 358/2 in 20 overs (Mohammad Zohaib 156, Mohammad Jaffer 82, Mohammad Akram 69) bt South Africa: 116/7; Australia: 239/6 in 20 overs (Mathew Horsey 60, Lindsay Heaven 59, Corrie Heberley 25) bt West Indies: 174 all out in 16.5 overs (Gregory Stewart 27; Raymond Moxly 3-38).
