Current Match Report – NZ A vs India A 1st unofficial ODI 2022
Sen, making his debut for India A, bowled in tandem with the senior fast to entice No. 3 Joe Carter leg earlier than wicket. That was the third wicket of a collapse which noticed New Zealand A slide from 14 with out loss to 74 for 8 in a span of 16 overs.
However Walker was run-out within the thirty ninth over, and it took India A lower than extra overs to bowl New Zealand A out, as Thakur ended with 4 for 32 – together with getting Rippon out final – whereas Sen returned figures of three for 30.
A below-par rating on a batting-friendly pitch was by no means going to pose a risk, and India A made brief work of the chase.
After Prithvi Shaw perished for 17, Ruturaj Gaikwad and No. 3 Rahul Tripathi, who received 31, stitched 56 runs. Gaikwad’s three fours and two clear sixes helped him accumulate 41 earlier than he was caught-and-bowled by Rippon.
However an entertaining partnership adopted between India A captain Sanju Samson and the in-form Rajat Patidar. Samson was welcomed with a rousing cheer from the 200-odd spectators because the pair placed on an unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 69 to chase down the goal with seven wickets and greater than 19 overs to spare.
Samson remained unbeaten on 29 – together with hitting three sixes – whereas Patidar, who punished the bowlers every time they went full, struck a fast 45 off 41 balls. His knock included seven boundaries.
The second of the three one-dayers will happen on Sunday on the similar venue, with the guests now in a must-win scenario to stay alive within the sequence
