Railways win a thriller
Railways notched up a narrow three-run win against Rajasthan in their Ranji Trophy one-day match at Udaipur on Friday.
Put in to bat, Railways made 251 in their innings. With opener Amit Pagnis making 45 off 51 balls and Tejinder Pal Singh top-scoring with 63 off 72, the total looked to touch the 300-run mark. The middleorder, however, lost its way, and only a steady innings from Yere Goud enabled it to touch the 250-mark.
Rajasthan lost Siddharth Joshi early, but opener Gagan Khoda made 69 off 91 and Nikhil Doru hit 60 off 80. With the two at the crease, and even after Khoda's departure, Rajasthan looked set for a win. Four batsmen were run out, however, to leave Rajasthan bowled out for 248, three runs short of Railways target.
