Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20: Manish Pandey sparkles as Gulbarga Mystics power past Mangalore United

0

It
was
an
important
win
for
Gulbarga
Mystics
to
keep
themselves
in
the
hunt
for
knockouts
stage
next
week.

With
their
fifth
victory
from
eight
matches,
the
Mystics
zoomed
to
the
top
with
10
points,
same
as
Bengaluru
Blasters
and
Mysore
Warriors
at
the
end
of
eight
matches
for
all
the
six
teams
in
the
fray
with
the
top
four
going
into
the
knockout
stage.

The
Blasters
are
on
top
with
a
better
net
run
rate
followed
by
the
Mystics
and
the
Warriors.

Chasing
a
stiff
target
of
165
for
victory,
the
United
batsmen
found
the
going
tough
right
from
the
beginning
and
the
loss
of
three
early
wickets
by
the
seventh
over
made
the
task
all
the
more
daunting.

Abhinav
Manohar
(51,
34
balls,
2
fours,
3
sixes)
kept
the
United
in
the
chase
with
a
fighting
knock,
but
once
he
was
dismissed
off
the
first
ball
of
the
18th
over,
the
target
was
beyond
the
reach
of
the
fragile
United
tail.
A
desperate
Manohar
went
after
a
short
and
wide
delivery
from
young
leg-spinner
Kushaal
Wadhwani,
but
only
managed
to
nick
it
to
be
caught
by
K
L
Shrijith.

K
Shashi
Kumar
made
a
bold
attempt
to
pull
off
an
improbable
victory
smashing
Wadhwani
to
three
successive
boundaries
of
the
last
three
balls
of
the
same
over,
but
that
was,
as
the
saying
goes,
too
little
too
late.

Young
Wadhwani
was
again
impressive,
finishing
with
figures
of
3-48.

Earlier
in
the
first
innings,
Captain
Manish
Pandey
came
good
when
it
mattered
the
most
to
steer
Gulbarga
Mystics
to
a
fighting
164-6.

While
an
all-round
performance
by
CA
Karthik
who
scored
a
steady
38
off
32
balls
and
bagged
two
wickets
giving
away
just
nine
runs
helped
seal
the
game
for
Mystics.

Coming
in
to
bat
when
his
team
was
in
a
bit
of
a
spot
at
55
for
four
in
the
eighth
over,
Pandey
took
time
to
settle
down
in
a
key
clash.

More
at
stake
was
a
place
in
the
playoffs
with
the
winners
joining
the
table
toppers
Bengaluru
Blasters
and
Mysore
Warriors
with
10
points
each
and
two
matches
to
go
for
all
the
six
teams
in
the
fray.

The
Mystics
began
rather
shakily
losing
two
early
wickets
by
the
fourth
over
after
being
put
into
bat
by
United.

Opener
Devdutt
Padikkal,
who
had
led
his
team
to
a
fine
victory
less
than
24
hours
ago
hitting
a
fluent
61-ball
78
against
the
Blasters,
was
unusually
fidgety
as
the
odd
ball
kept
low.

After
a
charmed
life
at
the
crease
for
a
sedate
25
off
22
balls
(4
fours),
the
left-handed
youngster
perished
to
an
arm-ball
from
K
Shashi
Kumar
which
cramped
him
up
and
slipped
through
to
strike
the
stumps.

Pandey,
who
will
be
remembered
for
ever
for
being
the
first
Indian
batsman
to
score
a
century
in
the
Indian
Premier
League
way
back
in
2009,
found
an
able
partner
in
Ajit
Karthik
(38,
32
balls,
3
fours,
1
six)
and
the
two
added
82
runs
for
the
sixth
wicket
before
the
Indian
international
(58,
48
balls,
4
fours,
2
sixes)
perished
going
for
a
big
hit
and
getting
caught
on
the
long-on
fence
with
the
score
on
139
and
10
balls
to
spare.

But
Ritesh
Bhatkal
provided
the
much-needed
pyrotechnics
pulling
the
first
ball
he
faced
over
long-on
for
a
six.

He
hammered
one
more
maximum,
flat
and
hard
over
deep
midwicket
off
the
third
ball
of
the
last
over
and
finished
off
with
a
flourish

a
thick-edged
boundary
over
short
third
man
as
Gulbarga
finished
on
a
challenging
164
for
six.
