Starter Mayank Agarwal smashed a blustery century as India A recorded a convincing seven-wicket success over West Indies A in the Tri-Series in England on Monday.
Pursue 222 in the allotted 50 over’s, India A were home with plenty to spare at the Grace Road, with Mayank’s 102-ball 112 being the highlight of the innings.
India medium pacer Deepak Chahar was the largely successful bowler of the day, returning with imposing figures of 5/27 in his full quota of 10 over’s. It was due to Chahar’s fine bowling that India A could cut short the West Indies A’s innings in 49.1 over’s.
The 27-year-old Mayank laced his beat with 11 boundaries and 2 sixes and was involved in a 148-run partnership for the 2-wicket with Shubman Gill (58 not out off 92 balls).
Once Mayank was out in the 33rd over and Shreyas Iyer (1) also left cheaply, Gill and Rishabh Pant (18 not out) took India home, getting the target in 38.1 overs.
Former batting first, West Indies A were bowled out for a modest 221 after losing wickets at regular intervals. Deepak Chahar was the wrecker-in-chief as he sent back two top-order batsmen with just 14 runs on the board.
