Saurashtra score three-wicket victory

Warding off a late scare from Karnataka bowlers, Saurashtra registered a three-wicket win over the hosts to take home six points in the under-19 Cooch Behar Trophy here on Tuesday. 

Resuming from their overnight score of 50 for no loss, Saurashtra crossed the victory line with the help of two crucial partnerships. After openers Priyajit Chudasama (30) and Jashmin Sitapara began well with a 60-run stand, middle order batsmen Jyotir Purohit (48 n.o.) and Samarth Vyas (41) put up 45 runs to get closer to the target.

The Karnataka bowlers tried to pull things back by picking four quick wickets to reduce the visitors to 178 for seven from 163 for four .  But Purohit made sure his side reach the target without any further damage. M Prasidh  (3-56) and Aditya Somanna (3-43) shared six wickets  between them for the  hosts.  Brief scores: Karnataka: 169 and 284 all out in 98 overs lt to Saurashtra: 275 and 182/7 in 63 overs (Priyajit Chudasama 30, Jashmin Sitapara 35, Jyotir Purohit 48, Samarth Vyas 41; Aditya Somanna 3-43, M Prasidh 3-56).
