Kaif RCB’s sole bright spot in Vijay Hazare Trophy

Uttar Pradesh batsman Mohammad Kaif was the lone bright spot for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Thursday.

Kaif scored 79* to take his team to 203/4 in reply to Rajasthan’s 202/9 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground in Nagpur, handing them a six wicket win.

Back home at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, Karnataka suffered a 62 run loss against Tamil Nadu, bowled out for 208 in 47.3 overs chasing TN’s 270. Abhimanyu Mithun did a good job taking 3/48 but found little support from his fellow bowlers. RCB’s Raju Bhatkal took 1/53 while KP Appanna went wicketless conceding 49 in his 8 overs as TN rode on a ton from Dinesh Karthik to reach 270. Mayank Agarwal only managed 10 runs in Karnataka’s reply while Mithun made 22 to make it an allround show.

Asad Pathan made just 3 runs for Gujarat in their chase of Mumbai’s 233/9 at the Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai’s bowlers managed a narrow 8 run win, keeping them to 225/9.

Not far from there, at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai, Cheteshwar Pujara made 17 in Saurashtra’s 2 run loss against Maharashtra. Batting first Maharashtra piled on 311/5. Saurashtra briefly threatened their score before ending on 308/9.
