Dharwad post commanding win

Dharwad Zone completed a command eight-wicket victory over Raichur Zone in the under-25 SA Srinivasan Memorial Trophy match here at the M Chinnaswamy stadium on Sunday.

Having already gained the upper hand on the opening day of the two-day match, Dharwad Zone batsmen built on the strong platform before their bowlers came to party in style for the second time in as many days as they kicked off their campaign on a superb note.

Dharwad, 253/5 overnight, declared their innings closed at 334/6 in 70 overs to open up a hamdsome 191-run lead. Shishir Bhavane added one more to his overnight score before being dismissed for 147 while Darshan Patil chipped in with 63.

Raichur did fare better in their second innings but their 268 all out in 69.3 overs was just not enough keep Dharwad from collecting full points. Girish Kuntogi top-scored with an unbeaten 83 and Murali Krishna stroked himself to 54. For Dharwad, Ganesh Aihole took 3/73 while Parappa Mordi (2/103), Neelesh Patil (2/29) and B Tanu (2/12) grabbed two apiece. Dharwad then knocked down the target in quick fashion, reaching 78/2 in 10.4 overs. Samarth Ooty and Adithya Patil hit unbeaten 35 and 27 respectively.
