Mumbai: Apr 9, 2014

Baroda sailed to a convincing 16-run win over Delhi with left-arm pacer Lukman Meriwala bagging five-wicket haul in the Super League stage of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 at Mumbai. Chasing 132, Delhi got off to a disastrous start losing three wickets inside six overs. Meriwala was the wrecker-in-chief bagging all three wickets.

Yogesh Nagar and Jagrit Anand then steadied the ship for Felhi though the runs were hard to come by. Baroda were excellent  with some sharp fielding making it difficult for the set batsmen to steal the twos. Baroda tightened the noose with left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya picking two wickets in the 16th over. Nagar was bowled while Sumit Narwal was brlliantly caught at long-off. With 50 needed in the last four overs, it was always going to be a tough ask.

Munaf Patel came in to bowl the 18th over and snared Varun Sood and Kshitij Sharma in quick succession. Meriwala came back in the 19th over to pick two more and completed a five-for. He ended with five for 23 while Munaf gave away 10 in his four overs. Jagrit Anand was top-scorer for Delhi with 54.

Earlier, Baroda poster a par score of 131 for six. They would been restricted to a far lower score if Krunal Pandya had not smashed a cameo of 22 in 8 balls. After choosing to bat, Baroda were off to a cautious start managing just 27 in six overs. The openers Aditya Waghmode and Kedar Devdhar tried to break the shackles when Devdhar was caught in the deep. Waghmode kep his team inthe hunt and brought up Baroda’s fifty in the 10th over with a slog sweep for six.

However, they kept losing  wickets at regular intervals. Waghmode eventually departed for 30 from 29 balls. Struggling at 101 for five, Baroda could have been restricted to a lot less.

India Under-19 player Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya presented good running between the wickets. In the last over by Sumit Narwal, Krunal hammered a six and a four which propelled the team to a good score. Krunal remained unbeaten on 22 from eight deliveries.
