Krishnappa Gowtham hits a six off Kaul


During the first game of the ongoing Deodhar Trophy between India A and India B in Ranchi, Krishnappa Gowtham, the India B all-rounder played a stunning cameo to help his team to put up a total of 302 for 6 in their allotted 50 overs.

Came in to bat at No. 7 in the 48th over, Karnataka all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham smashed an unbeaten 19 off 8 with the help of a boundary and two sixes in a well-made 37-run partnership along with another all-rounder Vijay Shankar who scored 26.

However, on the penultimate delivery of the penultimate over Gowtham scooped India A bowler Siddarth Kaul for a maximum over third-man. Although he wanted to play the shot towards the fine-leg at first, he adjusted the bat according to the line of the ball and it ended up landing in the stand. Kaul, on the other hand, had a pretty bad show with the ball as he conceded 77 runs for a wicket in his 10 overs yesterday.

After having won the toss, India A captain Hanuma Vihari put India B into bat where Ruturaj Gaikwad and Baba Aparajith stitched a 158-run stand for the third wicket. While Gaikwad smashed 113 off 122 which included eight fours and four sixes, Aparajith ended up scoring 101 off 101 with the help of six boundaries and two sixes.

Apart from Hanuma Vihari’s 59 off 82, none of the batsmen of India A did well with the bat. Pacer bowlers Roosh Kalaria and Mohammed Siraj who bagged 3 and 2 wickets respectively, played an important role to bowled the opposition out for 194 in 47.2 overs and India B registered a win by a whopping 108 runs.
