Devdhar blazes Baroda to final

Kedar Devdhar missed his century by four runs, but it didn't matter as his team, Baroda, stormed into the finals after beating Delhi comprehensively at the Bandra-Kurla Complex. Devdhar's 96 came in a stand of 143 with Aditya Waghmode, who hit a half-century to help Baroda chase down 170.

Delhi claimed their first wicket in the second over - Monil Patel - but had to wait till the 13th for their second strike. By that time, Waghmode and Devdhar had taken the score to 150. Waghmode hit eight fours and a six in his 60, before he was dismissed caught and bowled by Pawan Negi. Devdhar hit six sixes and 11 fours in his blazing 40-ball knock. He too was dismissed by Negi, but Baroda were already well on course to victory.

Baroda's spinners set up the win, sharing six wickets between them. Bhargav Bhatt, the left-arm spinner, was expensive, conceding 50 off his allotted overs, but picked up three wickets. Yusuf Pathan picked up two wickets but conceded only 30 runs. Shikhar Dhawan was the top-scorer with 62, but Delhi suffered because the middle order couldn't put on substantial partnerships. In the end, the pair of Waghmode and Devdhar showed the way.

Baroda will meet Punjab in the final tomorrow.
