India C 296 for 4 (Shubman 106 *, Kishan 69, Suryakumar 56 *, Ashwin 1-46) beat India A 293 for 6 (Easwaran 69, Rana 68, Vijay 3- 40) by six windows
Shubman Gill has dazzled in the IPL, but for those of the more conventional disposition, he made a great statement with his First A hundred list in a chase. From 85 for 3, India C rode the first successful pursuit of this Deodhar Trophy, sealing its place in the final against undefeated India B. All three matches were played in Feroz Shah Kotla, but this release played better than the previous two where the The pursuit teams achieved only 218 and 201. Gill, however, led this chase of 294 with the first hundred of the tournament.
Gill was supported by the batter-guard Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. What will impress the three national selectors who attended is that there were a lot of sensible punches with an impressive stroke game. Following the trend in this tournament, and with Ajinkya Rahane and Suresh Raina missing, India C seemed to be out of the competition chasing the biggest total of the tournament.
Very soon in the piece, Gill prepared to hit, and Kishan assumed the role of executor. Kishan has shown in the past that he can innovate and strike against slower players. He hit international bowling players Mohammed Siraj and R Ashwin by two limits in one final. His attack rate was less than 100 only against Ashwin and Nitish Frog. Meanwhile, Gill intoned Ashwin and Shams Mulani by six each.
International teams may also want to see the recordings of this chase as a tutorial on how to face Kedar Jadhav, who was recovering from his latest thigh injury. . They played the full balls in a straight line (Kishan even drove one behind him for four) and waited for the short ball. Suryakumar was the most severe in Jadhav, hit a short, low-bounce ball for an extra six in outward coverage.
By this time, Gill and Suryakumar had sailed through the slightly nervous period after Kishan's firing by a 60-69 ball. Now Gill, too, began to boast, beating a slower gorilla of Dhawal Kulkarni by the half the field. Suryakumar responded with two sixes in empty positions, which slowed the progress of the match. The power of Suryakumar hitting again was from a persecution template: the higher order takes you to position 35 with the application rate in control, and then the big hitter kills the contest.
Gill raised his hundred with only 12 required races, and then finished the game with a limit on the last ball of 47.
