NKP Salve Challenger Trophy, Delhi v India Blue at Indore, Sep 26, 2013
India Blue won by 18 runs
26 September 2013 (50-over match)

Bhatia to Ojha, OUT, there's the wicket, Bhatia has struck, Ojha was looking to manufacture a shot there, shuffled across the stumps and looked to paddle sweep the ball, he misses and is struck in front of off stump, no doubts over whether that would hit the stumps, umpire raises the finger and Ojha is on his way, not his most fluent effort

NV Ojha lbw b Bhatia 23 (67m 43b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.48

India Blue 56/1   PA Reddy 28* (49b 4x4)   R Bhatia 2.2-0-9-1

Bhatia to Pandey, OUT, whoa Bhatia is on a roll here! Pandey has missed one and the offstump has been knocked back. After an hour of inactivity, there is finally some action. It was again a length delivery outside off and Pandey took a big forward stride to push it to the off side, but the ball jagged a touch into the batsman, went through the gap that had opened and hit the stumps. Pandey..he used to be a promising batsman once..

MK Pandey b Bhatia 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India Blue 56/2   PA Reddy 28* (49b 4x4)   R Bhatia 3-0-9-2

Bhatia to Roy, OUT, another one for Bhatia! Blame Anurag Bohra for this dismissal! It was again one of those length deliveries outside off and Roy, instead of going forward, chooses to stay back and guide it through to third man. It hits the inside edge and knocks the stumps down.

SA Roy b Bhatia 5 (9m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

India Blue 66/3   PA Reddy 33* (54b 5x4)   R Bhatia 3.5-0-13-3

Varun Sood to Reddy, OUT, now Reddy has wasted his innings! It was a touch slower and well tossed up, Reddy had been curbing his attacking instincts went for an across-the-line hoick and missed the ball completely. The middle stump takes a beating

PA Reddy b Varun Sood 53 (110m 77b 7x4 0x6) SR: 68.83

India Blue 99/4   AM Nayar 12* (17b 1x4)   Varun Sood 2.2-0-8-1

Narwal to Bawne, OUT, loud appeal and there is a wicket! It was a length delivery that jagged back sharply into the batsman, who was trying to guide it to third man. Poor decision as that hit him outside the line of off and would have probably gone over anyway

AR Bawne lbw b Narwal 13 (37m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.00

India Blue 151/5   AM Nayar 51* (41b 7x4 1x6)   S Narwal 6.3-1-35-1

Milind Kumar to Nayar, OUT, and that's the end of Nayar, missing out on a hundred after a superb fighting innings, a soft dismissal this, a full ball is chipped towards Kohli at cover, simple catch there, end of a terrific knock

AM Nayar c Kohli b Milind Kumar 91 (115m 73b 13x4 1x6) SR: 124.65

India Blue 222/6   PP Chawla 23* (30b 2x4)   Milind Kumar 1.5-0-10-1
