Mumbai, Feb 13:
Seasoned pace bowler Irfan Pathan and upcoming swashbuckling batsman Ishan Kishan played stellar roles in West and East Zone’s comprehensive wins over North and Central Zone respectively in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 Inter Zonal tournament here today.
Pathan grabbed 3 for 10 in four overs as West stopped North, in spite of captain Gautam Gambhir’s second fifty (60) in as many days, at 107 for 8, and then romped home by eight wickets in just 12.4 overs by making 108 for 2 at the Wankhede Stadium.
Captain Parthiv Patel led from the front with a 35-ball 56 with nine fours and also added 80 for the first wicket with Shreyas Iyer (30) in nine overs to pave the way for West’s first win after the loss to Central yesterday. (PTI)
