The Harbax Singh Stadium at Delhi saw Haryana complete a fine nine
wicket win over Services in their Ranji One-Day encounter played
today. On winning the toss, Haryana skipper Parender Sharma elected to
field. Mediumpacer Vineet Jain and left arm spinner Pradeep Jain
combined to get rid of the top four batsmen, all bowled, as Services
lost wickets at regular intervals. Barring a 32 from SD Nadkarni, the
Services batsmen all succumbed meekly and together could muster only
163 before they were all out.
Chasing a small target like 163 was never going to pose any problems
for the Haryana team against a comparatively weak side. Opener P
Sehrawat helped himself to an unbeaten 103 as Haryana overhauled the
total with twelve overs to spare. There was no joy for the Services
bowlers as Sehrawat occupied the crease for over two and a half hours.
Striking the ball to the fence nine times in his essay, Sehrawat
authored an easy nine wicket win.
