Vijay Hazare Trophy: TN thrash Karnataka by 8 wickets in Southern derby
Left-arm spinners M Siddharth and R Sai Kishore came up with impressive performances as Tamil Nadu outplayed arch-rivals Karnataka by eight wickets in an Elite Group 'B' match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Thursday.
Save Pandey (40) and Rohan Kadam (37), none of the other Karnataka batters could make a significant contribution. Tamil Nadu then rode on B Indrajith's unbeaten half-century to overhaul the target in 28 overs.
Kadam's innings was ended by M S Washington Sundar (1/27), who castled him.
Indrajith and Washington Sundar (31 not out, 33 balls, 3 fours) made sure that there was no further trouble as they closed out the chase in the 28th over. It was the second occasion in recent times that Tamil Nadu had managed to put it across Karnataka after having nailed a thrilling final of the Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
In other matches of the group which were affected by rain, Mumbai got past Baroda, while Pondicherry pulled off a surprise win over the fancied Bengal -- both via the VJD method used in domestic matches.
