Maharashtra storm into final

Bangalore:Jan 23, 2013 DHNS

Visitors set up title clash with defending champions Mumbai

Maharashtra stormed into the final of the Cooch Behar Trophy under-19 tournament for the second successive year by virtue of first innings lead after their match against Karnataka petered into an expected draw here on Wednesday.

Heading into the final day with a handsome lead of 253/3, the visitors were hardly troubled, wrapping up the proceedings a little after tea at the Chinnaswamy stadium to set up a revenge final against Mumbai.
The final will be played at the Subrata Roy Sahara stadium in Pune from Jan 27-30.

First innings tormentors Shubham S Ranjane (50) and Nikhil Naik (68) once again produced gritty knocks, blunting any faint hopes that Karnataka had harboured.

The duo, which came together at the fall of RT Sharma’s wicket in the seventh over of the day (32.3), stitched together 94 runs in 30.3 overs that took the wind completely out of hosts’ attack.


Although the hosts fought back in the post lunch session, bowling out Maharashtra for 211 in 79.3 overs, it came too late in the day as they were left with an imposing task of chasing 414 in one session.

Playing for time, the hosts scored 96 for three in 21 overs when play was called off with just the mandatory overs left in the day.

Mumbai outplay Punjab

Defending champions Mumbai overpowered Punjab by 158 runs in the second semifinal in Mumbai.
Chasing 222 for victory on the final day, Punjab were bundled out for 63 in their second innings.
A Parkar was the wrecker-in-chief, claiming seven for 30 for the hosts.

He was ably supported by A Kadam, who returned with figures of three for six.

Brief scores: Maharashtra: 476 all out in 152.5 overs and 211 all out in 79.3 overs (Shubham S Ranjane 50, Nikhil Naik 68; Prateek Jain 2-38, Suchith J 4-61) vs Karnataka: 273 all out in 107 overs and 96/3 in 21 overs (Rohan Kadam 33, KN Bharath 25 n.o.).

Mumbai: 160 & 188 (A Herwadkar 51; A Bajwa 7-73) bt Punjab: 127/8 & 63 (A Parkar 7-30, A Kadam 3-6).
