CSA Triangular Series Points Table
6th one-dayer, Pretoria: Shikhar Dhawan's blistering 248 takes India 'A' to final
Aug 12, 2013Shikhar Dhawan slammed 248, the second highest List A score ever, from 150 balls. His double century came in just 132 deliveries and included 24 boundaries and 4 sixes. He fell 20 runs short of the highest score in List A cricket. The record remains with Alistair Duncan Brown of England, who scored 268 off 160 balls for Surrey vs Glamorgan at The Oval on 19th June 2002. Pujara remained not out on 109, with India ending the innings on 433 for 3 in their must-win match versus hosts South Africa 'A'. In 19 ODIs to date, he has already struck three 100s, three half-centuries and averages 43.11.
South Africa 'A' gave a great chase thanks to centuries from Reeza Hendricks (106) and Vaughn van Jaarsveld (108) before being bowled out for 394 in reply. India 'A' will now play Australia 'A' in the final of the tri-series on Wednesday, 14th August.
6th one-dayer: India 'A' 433/3 (Dhawan 248, Pujara 109*) beat South Africa 'A' 394 (van Jaarsveld 108, Hendricks 106, Pandey 4-76) by 39 runs
Tri-series Final: India 'A' vs Australia 'A'
India 'A' convincingly take CSA Tri-series title in Pretoria
Aug 14, 2013India 'A' emphatically beat their Australian counterparts by 50 runs to clinch the Tri-series final of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) triangular series at the TUKS Oval in Pretoria on Wednesday. Opting to bat first after winning the toss, India lost two wickets in the first six overs, but the 108-run third-wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan (62) and Dinesh Karthik (73) pulled the innings back in India’s favour. But India lost their last five wickets for 14 runs as they recorded the third-lowest total of the tournament.
In Australia’s chase, Tim Paine (47) and Hazlewood (30) were the only ones to prosper in the face of some tight bowling from the Indian, especially the quick bowlers, who were able to extract slight extra bounce. Speedster Mohammed Shami (2-30) dealt initial blows, while Shahbaz Nadeem (3-34), Perveez Rasool (1-30) and Suresh Raina (1-33) kept the Aussie batsmen under tight leash. Australia were bowled out for 193 in 46.3 overs, handing India their fifth 'A' tournament victory since the concept was introduced in 1994.
Tri-Series Final: India 'A' 243 all out in 49.2 ov (Karthik 73, Shikhar 62) beat Australia 'A' 193 all out in 46.3 ov (Nadeem 3-34, Mohammed Shami 2-30) by 50 runs
