India Emerging Players 7 for 166 (Dhawan 47, Matshikwe 2-27) beat South Africa Emerging Players 64 (Phangiso 18, Unadkat 4-10) by 102 runs
India Emerging Players crushed South Africa Emerging Players by 102 runs after Jaidev Unadkat dismissed the South Africans for a paltry 64. This win took India to the top of the table with two wins from as many matches while the South Africans have lost both their games.
Chasing India's 166, the South Africans were reduced to 7 for 33 at one stage. Unadkat's spell read 3-0-10-4 as eight batsmen, including the top seven, did not reach double figures. He was supported by Vinay Kumar and Piyush Chawla, both of whom took two wickets, as the South Africans were shot out in 13.1 overs.
Earlier, the Indians were off to their second blazing start of the tournament, with an opening stand of 66 in 7.2 overs between Shikhar Dhawan and captain Parthiv Patel. Patel was the more aggressive of the two, making 37 off 23 deliveries, while Dhawan made 47 off 45. Naman Ojha was unbeaten on 20 off 10 deliveries with two sixes as the Indians finished on 7 for 166, after three wickets in eight deliveries had reduced them to 6 for 142.
Australian Institute of Sports 2 for 165 (Dunk 64*, Wagner 1-34) beat New Zealand Emerging Players 8 for 161 (How 40, George 2-22) by eight wickets
Australian Institute of Sports thrashed New Zealand Emerging Players by eight wickets, overhauling the target of 162 inside 15 overs. The Australian chase was anchored by wicketkeeper Ben Dunk who shrugged off the early loss of his opening partner Nic Maddinson to remain unbeaten on 64 off 44 deliveries. Luke Pomersbach hammered 38 off 13 deliveries with three fours and as many sixes, as the Australians raced to 78 in six overs. Thereafter, James Faulkner combined with Dunk in an unbroken 87-run stand as the Australians cantered to victory in 14.4 overs.
In New Zealand's innings, captain Jamie How top-scored with 40 off 29 deliveries, as they reached 8 for 161 in their 20 overs. Four other batsmen got twenties but New Zealand lost five wickets for 19 runs at the death to be reduced to 8 for 145 in 19 overs. However, Brendon Diamanti took 16 runs off the last over in a late flourish, remaining unbeaten on 27 off nine deliveries.
