In another match, an all-round President’s XI took 136-run first innings lead against Raichur. Amogh Shetty’s five-wicket haul (5/19) and Adoksh Hegde’s 3/8 helped President’s XI skittle out Raichur for 89.

In response, a century fro Pratik Bhandari (106, 149b, 17x4) and an unbeaten 44 from Adoksh helped President’s XI finish at a healthy score of 225/4.
