Pandey puts together back to back unbeaten innings of 117 and 73 to lead the hosts to victory
India B have beaten Australia A by nine wickets in the one-day quadrangular series final at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Wednesday.
The match winner for India was in-form captain Manish Pandey who blasted 73 not out, following on his unbeaten century against the same opponent just a few days previous.
The Australians lost the toss and were sent in to bat first.
However, after being 4-192, Australia A lost their last six wickets for 33 runs to be dismissed for 225 in the 48th over.
Spinners Shreyas Gopal (3-50) and Deepak Hooda (2-41) claimed multiple wickets, as did fast bowlers Navdeep Saini (2-33) and Siddarth Kaul (2-24).
In reply, Mayank Agarwal (69), Shubman Gill (66 not out) and Pandey all posted fifties as India B reached the target one wicket down in just the 37th over.
Pandey’s effort completed a stunning double as he knocked up 117 not out against Australia A in the preliminary rounds. He fittingly completed the rout with a straight driven six over the sight-screen.
Agar claimed Australia’s only wicket.
Australia A’s first four day match – against India A – will be at the same venue commencing on September 2.
