Karnataka win again

 A strong all-round performance from Karnataka gave them a four-wicket victory over Services in the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Sunday.

Half-centuries from Robin Uthappa, Pavan Deshpande, Aniruddha Joshi and a solid bowling show from pacer Prasidh Krishna spurred Manish Pandey’s side.

Having won the toss and put Services into bat, Prasidh (3/39) gave his side a good start removing opener Nakul Verma (4) and Amit Pachhara (7) with the scoreboard reading 20 for two.

Thereafter, the Karnataka bowlers continued to apply the pressure on their opponents and despite a few of their batsmen getting starts, Services could only muster 231 for seven in their 50 overs.

Karnataka were rocked in the beginning of their chase by Suraj Yadav who accounted for Mayank Agarwal (0) and R Samarth (1).

Skipper Pandey (23) and Robin Uthappa (51) rebuilt the innings before Deshpande (73) pushed them closer.

Cameos from Joshi (50 off 37) and J Suchith (24 off 18) ensured Karnataka overhauled the target with 35 balls to spare.
