Cricket : Haryana strike back in style

Vidarbha call the shots on day one

 Centurion Shalabh Srivastava and Aditya Shanware, who missed his three-figure score narrowly, batted Vidarbha Cricket Association into a position of strength on the opening day of their semifinal against KSCA XI in the Dr (Capt) K Thimmappaiah memorial invitational cricket tournament here at the Chinnaswamy stadium on Saturday.

Shrivastava stroked his way to 145 (196b, 20x4) while Shanware fell on 94 as the duo raised a mammoth 226 runs in 358 balls to power Vidarbha to a comfortable 311 for six in 90 overs.

Ravi Janged (30) and Aditya Sarvate (33) were in the middle at close of day one. Seamer S Arvind was the most successful bowler grabbing 2/44.

Haryana hit back

In another semifinal at the Alur ground, Haryana Cricket Association hit back through Jayant Yadav after being dismissed for a modest total.

Despite Rahul Dalal’s sparkling ton (112, 152b, 13x4, 2x6), Haryana could muster only 221 all out in 62.1 overs against Dr DY Patil Academy as Manjeet Chaudhary (4/50) caused havoc with able support from Iqbal Abdulla (2/41).

Haryana, however, struck back to leave DY Patil teetering at 104 for five in 26.5 overs with the off-spinner (5/26) claiming all the wickets to fall.

Brief scores (semifinals): At M Chinnaswamy Stadium: Vidarbha Cricket Association: 311/6 in 90 overs (Aditya Shanware 94, Shalab Shrivastava 145, Ravi Jangid 30 n.o, Aditya Sarvate 33 n.o.; S Arvind 2-44) vs KSCA XI.

At Alur (2): Haryana Cricket Association: 221 all out in 62.1 overs (Guntash Veer Singh 37, Rahul Dalal 112; Manjeet Chaudhary 4-50, Iqbal Abdullah 2-41) vs Dr DY Patil Cricket Academy: 104/5 in 26.5 overs (Kevin Almieda 36; Jayant Yadav 5-26).
