Manish Pandey’s 100 leads India A to victory - 03/09/2016

A fantastic batting display by Manish Pandey, to score an unbeaten 100 against South Africa A lead them to a three-wicket and 8 ball victory. This was a crucial game for the Indian A team as this got them points on the table for the Quadrangular A-team One-Day Series.

India won the toss and managed to restrict South Africa A to a total of 230. India came out confident to bat but chasing 231 did not seem to be all that easy for the Indian A team. The 1st wicket fell only after 41 runs and with Andile Phehlukwayo’s two wickets in the same over India A seemed to face a lot of trouble with the reality of being bowled out at 187/7, the skipper took on a lot of the pressure at this point. The duo of Pandey and Dhawal Kulkarni who managed to make 26 runs from 23 balls proved to be India A's saving grace.

The India skipper batted with truth, grace and acute performance. He showed his character when his nine fours and one six which helped India A take home their first victory in the Quadrangular A series. Pandey stood his ground and played with a calm mind in spite of not having much support from the other end. Showing his skill and talent, he managed to finish off the match and score his first ODI century this series with a stylish boundary against left off spinner Aaron Phangiso.

Bowling first, India A managed to restrict the South African A team to a total of 230 with the help of Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat and Hardik Pandya who took a total of 4 wickets and giving 88 runs among them. The South African side came back into the game with a 110 run partnership between Qaasim Adams and David Miller. No matter how great the partnership was, the side was able to make only 230, after David Miller's fall for 90 from 104 deliveries to Dhawal Kulkarni.

After the 8 wicket loss to Australia A, a few days back in the opening match of the series was in sight again. Running out of partners, Pandey tried his best to keep the team going, his 100 not out proved to be the game changer. This win allows India to be in third place just after the National Performance Squad and Australia A team.

Making a 100* from 105 balls the right-handed batsman is in good shape and will be looking to keep up this spirit in the next game against the National Performance Squad on August 21. The positive attitude will also help the skipper in the KPL next month, where he will be looking to lead the Mysuru Warriors team to another victory.
