Spin skit­tles A team

The New Zealand Herald - - SPORT -

New Zealand A’s woes with legspin have con­tin­ued as they stum­bled to a six-wicket de­feat against In­dia A in the third ODI in Visakha­p­at­nam. Legspin­ner Karn Sharma, who had taken 16 wick­ets in the two ear­lier four-day­ers, took 5-22 as the Ki­wis were bowled out for 143 in 37.1 overs. In­dia A didn’t start their run chase con­vinc­ingly, los­ing their first three bats­men cheaply to sit on 23-3 two balls into the eighth over. How­ever, Shreyas Iyer stead­ied the ship with 37 off 36 balls then Vi­jay Shankar and Deepak Hooda put on an un­beaten 57-run part­ner­ship to see In­dia home. In­dia has a 1-0 lead in the five-match se­ries af­ter the first game was washed out and the sec­ond ended in a dra­matic tie.
