Rahul shines in Karnataka win

Vinay Kumars men trounce Kerala

Shimoga: KL Rahul’s quickfire half-century helped Karnataka trounce Kerala by 83 runs in their South Zone T20 cricket match for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on Monday.

Batting first, Karnataka piled on 185 for five in their 20 overs with Rahul (62 runs, 37 balls, 5x4, 2x6) top scoring and opener Manish Pandey notching up 50 off 42 balls.
Rahul was picked up by Prashanth Parameswaran after he gave a catch to Raiphi Gomez and Pandey was unfortunately run out after he cracked four sparkling fours.
Kerala bowlers did not trouble Karnataka batsmen as much as three of their batsmen were unfortunately run out. Paramsehwaran and P Prashanth picked up one wicket each.

Poor reply

In reply, Kerala could only manage to score 102 for nine in stipulated 20 overs. Local lad and medium pacer SL Akshay (2/18) and Amit Verma (2/16) were the pick of the bowlers for Karnataka. Robert Fernandez top scored with 21 for Kerala.

In another match, Andhra scored a five-wicket win over Hyderabad. Hyderabad made 161 for five in 20 overs, powered by a 118-run partnership off 82 balls for the second wicket between opener P Akshath Reddy (44) and right-hand batsman Tirumalasetti Suman (85). Andhra chased the target by scoring 163 for five with K S Bharat and D B Prashanth scoring 36 each.

In the third match, Tamil Nadu pulled off an easy eight-wicket win over Goa. Batting first, Goa managed to post 122 for seven in 20 overs. In reply, Tamil Nadu made 126 for two in 16.5 overs with an unbeaten partnership of 78 for the third wicket between Abhinav Mukund (49) and S Badrinath (31).
