Bishnoi, Chaudhary star in Rajasthan win

ESPNcricinfo staff

A belligerent half-century by Rajesh Bishnoi laid the foundation of Rajasthan's seven-run win over Railways in a high-scoring match in Nagpur. After making a solid - albeit a touch slow - start, Rajasthan plunged into a mini-crisis as Murali Kartik struck twice in the 13th over to reduce the team to 75 for 3, but Bishnoi's swashbuckling counter helped them add 72 in the next 34 balls. He was dismissed in the last over after having hit five sixes and five fours in his 21-ball 58, but not before helping Rajasthan post 175. Railways then slid early in their chase, losing their first three wickets for only one run. Rongsen Jonathan scored a half-century, but Railways struggled to increase the pace of scoring as regular wickets fell. Aniket Chaudhary was the pick of the bowlers with a haul of four for 30.
