KAR­NATAKA THRASH AP

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - SPORT -

Mayank Agar­wal’s blaz­ing cen­tury was the cor­ner­stone of Kar­nataka’s im­pos­ing 163-run tri­umph over Andhra Pradesh in a South Zone match of the Vi­jay Hazare Na­tional one-day cham­pi­onships here.

Andhra’s decision to bowl first after win­ning the toss boomeranged spec­tac­u­larly as Kar­nataka posted 330 runs, rid­ing on Agar­wal’s 137-ball 162 and Man­ish Pandey’s 63-ball 75.

In re­ply, Andhra folded for 196 in 47.4 overs with Kaif ’s 54 and Siva Kumar’s 40 be­ing the only high­lights of a dis­ap­point­ing bat­ting per­for­mance.

Agar­wal’s bril­liant knock was stud­ded with 22 fours and three sixes be­fore he ended up be­ing caught by Ricky Bhui off Andhra’s top wicket-taker Ayyappa Ban­daru, who was their most eco­nom­i­cal as well pick­ing up four for 43 in his 10 overs.

DE­SAI HIT 13 FOURS IN HIS 137-BALL IN­NINGS AND SHARED 149 RUNS FOR THE FIFTH WICKET WITH DAR­SHAN MISAL (69) FROM 25.2 OVERS AS GOA CHASED DOWN THE TAR­GET OF 284 WITH FIVE BALLS TO SPARE AT THE NSC GROUND HERE
