Haryana CA, NCA enter final
Haryana Cricket Association and the National Cricket Academy moved into the final of KSCA's All-India invitational cricket tournament defeating KSCA Colts by 170 runs and the KSCA President's XI by eight wickets, respectively, in the semi-finals that concluded here Sunday.
A fighting century by Shishir Bhavane (105, 125b,11x4, 3x6) went in vain as the Colts were bundled out for 228 in their second innings as Haryana coasted to a comfortable victory.
In the other semi-finals, the NCA made light of the target to score 196 for two in their chase to ease past President's XI whose second innings effort of 423 made no impact as Chirag Khurana (66 not out) and Anikit Bhavne (75 not out) carried the Academy to victory.
Haryana CA 405 all out and 228 all out in 56.4overs (Rahul Dalal 40, Jayant Yadav 35, Kuldeep Hooda 50, Prasidh Krishna 2/54, Gowtham K 5/107, J Suchith 2/49) beat KSCA Colts 246 and 228 all out in 48.4 overs (Shishir Bhavane 105, Suchith J 37, Yuzvendra Chahal 3/30, Jayanat Yadav 2/69, Sachin Rana 2/19) by 170 runs.
KSCA President's XI 214 all out and 423 all out in 100.1 overs (Abrar Kazi 72 (89 balls, 8x4), Chirag Khurana 5/79, Deepak Chahar 2/82) lost to National Cricket Academy 443 all out and 196 for 2 in 40 overs (Chirag Khurana 66 not out, Ankit Bhavne 75 not out) by 8 wickets.
