Prasidh sets up another Karnataka victory

Prasidh sets up another Karnataka victory
Pro­m­ising pacer Prasidh Krishna, playing in his fourth List A game, put up yet another good show to set up Karnataka’s seven-wicket victory over Jammu & Kashmir in the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Friday.

In the Group D encounter, Prasidh picked up 4/15 in seven overs as Manish Pandey’s men cruised to their fourth straight victory, virtually sealing a quarterfinal berth.

Karnataka and Hyderabad are both tied on 16 points but the former holds a superior net run-rate. Karnataka and Hyderabad play each other on Saturday.

Put into bat, Jammu & Kashmir batsmen came a cropper to be bowled for a paltry 108. Barring Manzoor Dar (20), none of the batsmen crossed the 20-run mark.

All-rounder Stuart Binny also produced a disciplined effort, bagging 2/30 in seven overs.
Chasing a low score, K Gowtham, promoted as a pinch-hitter, showcased his big hiting abilities, slamming a 44-ball 53 as Karnataka cruised to the target in 17.4 overs.
