Menaria stars for India 'A'

Dhawal Kulkarni scalped two wickets, while Basant Mohanty and Sandeep Sharma also took one wicket each.

Brief scores: New Zealand A: 216 all out in 47.2 overs (Carl Cachopa 80, Luke Ronchi 34, Andrew Ellis 34; Ashok Menaria 5-38, Dhawal Kulkarni 2-41) lt to India A: 217/4 in 38.5 overs (Unmukt Chand 59, Mandeep Singh 59, Mark GIllespie 2-62).
