Rajat Patidar: This RCB player’s bat roared, storming century for India A, New Zealand in trouble

Bangalore: Rajat Patidar’s unbeaten century helped India A set New Zealand A a target of 416 runs on the third day of the four-day third unofficial cricket Test. Chasing the target, the visitors got off to a disappointing start and New Zealand-A scored just 20 runs and lost one of their wickets. Chasing the target, New Zealand A lost the wicket of opener Rachin Ravindra (12), who was bowled lbw by Saurabh Kumar. At the end of the day’s play, opener Joe Carter was on a six while his partner at the other end, Joe Walker, was yet to open his account.

New Zealand-A need 396 runs to win with nine wickets remaining. India A declared the second innings first at 359 for seven, helped by Patidar’s unbeaten 109. Patidar hit 13 fours and two sixes in his innings of 135 balls. Apart from this, captain and opener Priyank Panchal (62), Ruturaj Gaikwad (94) and Sarfraz Khan (63) also scored fifties.

India started the day with 40 runs for one wicket. Panchal was dismissed with 17 runs while Gaikwad led with 18 runs. Both batted well in the morning session and took the team’s score to 130 runs. Walker (2 for 64) ended the 122-run second-wicket partnership by catching Panchal off his own ball.

Panchal hit six fours in his innings of 114 balls. Gaikwad and Patidar put India-A in a strong position by putting on a 102-run partnership for the third wicket after scoring a century in the first innings. Gaikwad, however, missed out on his second century of the match when he was caught by Walker off Mark Chapman. He hit 11 fours in 164 balls.

Patidar again found a good partner in Sarfraz Khan (63). Both added 108 runs for the fourth wicket. Sarfraz, however, fell prey to Ravindra (3 for 65) after completing his half-century. Ravindra then sent Upendra Yadav (01) and Shardul Thakur (00) to the pavilion. Patidar completed his century, after which captain Panchal declared the innings as soon as Rahul Chahar (10) was dismissed.
