Saurashtra clinched his trophy elite in the fourth round at Rajkot in his Group B match where he beat Delhi by an innings and 214 runs to score 7 points and bolster hopes for the quarter-finals. I was.

It has always been a difficult task for the visiting team after Saurashtra 574/8 declared to leave Delhi 441 behind.

Hrithik Shokeen showed his willingness to fight again because he has everything. Promoted to third place, he chose rides and movies to mark his 50th. A one-on-one duel with Jaydev Unadkat spiced up an otherwise one-sided contest. But firing Chirag Jani before tea was practically the final nail in the coffin.

The first Delhi player showed more guts in his second essay, although Unadkat was shot down in a very cheap eight-wicket move for 133 in the space of his 35 overs. Ayush Badoni took on his Unadkat and defeated his new Lucknow Super Giants teammate 6-4.

However, the resistance was short-lived. He added 67 to his first wicket against Dhruv Shorey when Harvik Desai made a clever stump to end Badoni’s stay.

Shorey was bowled clean in the next over by his Yuvrajsinh Dodiya. Dodiya, who took 91-for-5, destroyed Yash, the Delhi skipper with an extra jump before lunch, when he found Drur slipping, he landed another blow. Dhull’s scores of 0 and 4 reflected the general predicament of his team, who were all out for 227.

The morning was terribly windy and bitterly cold. Delhi seemed to have given up on not having enough bowling resources to match Saurashtra’s hitting power. That became more apparent in his first hour decision. Spinners Lalit Yadav and Shokeen endured a heavy workload, but worked in tandem for his first 45 minutes. No pacemaker came.

It appeared to be in the hands of a seeded Arpit Bassavada and a lively Unadkat.

Interestingly, on Wednesday, Unadkat was preparing for a throwdown at the practice net when his top order dug in against Toothless Delhi Bowling. “

Unadkat started the day with a nice drive of his 4 from shokeen and followed it up with his 6 sweep his shot in the deep midwicket from the same bowler.

He reached 50 of his 52 balls and even more balls were seen when he was caught attempting too many big throws on Lalit’s bowling. Meanwhile, Vasavada hit 150 on a late cut of 4. He may not have a chance to hit 200 here, but winning the inning would make this an unforgettable outing for the left-hander.
