A superb performance by medium-pacers Shardul Thakur (4-32) and Kuldeep Sen (3-30) helped set up a seven-wicket win for India ‘A’ against New Zealand ‘A’ in the first one-dayer here on Thursday.
Sent in to bat by India ‘A’ captain Sanju Samson, incisive bowling by Thakur and Sen had the visiting team in trouble from the start.
At one stage, the New Zealanders looked in danger of being bundled out for less than 100, but some rearguard action by Michael Rippon (61, 104 balls, 4 fours) and Joe Walker (36, 49 balls, 3 fours, 1 six) helped them post 167 in 40.2 overs. The Sanju Samson-led team overhauled the target set by the Kiwis in 31.5 overs with the captain (31 not out, 1 four, 3 sixes) and Rajat Patidar (45, 41 balls, 7 fours) finishing the job.
