Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021: Semifinal 1: Tamil Nadu steamroll Hyderabad, enter final

The
TN
bowlers
backed
skipper
Vijay
Shankar’s
decision
to
field
first
as
they
bundled
out
the
hitherto
unbeaten
Hyderabad
for
90
in
18.3
overs
with
only
Tanay
Thyagarajan
(25
off
24
balls)
reaching
the
double
figures.

Saravana
did
most
of
the
damage
upfront
as
he
accounted
for
the
top
order,
including
rival
captain
Tanmay
Agarwal
(1)
and
the
in-form
Tilak
Varma
(8).

He
finished
with
the
sensational
figure
of
5
for
21,
the
second
best
ever
bowling
figures
for
TN
behind
Rahil
Shah’s
5
for
12.

Hyderabad
was
tottering
at
30
for
5
in
6.2
overs
and
it
soon
became
39
for
6
when
Ravi
Teja
was
dismissed
by
M
Mohammed
for
9.

Late
resistance
by
Thyagarajan
and
Chama
Milind
(8)
helped
Hyderabad
escape
complete
humiliation
before
they
folded
for
90
in
the
19th
over.

Thyagarajan
hit
a
huge
six
off
Saravana
and
followed
it
up
with
a
boundary
before
another
attempted
big
shot
brought
about
his
downfall.

Apart
from
Saravana,
leg-spinner
M
Ashwin
(2/13
from
4
overs)
and
M
Mohammed
(2/12
from
three
overs)
helped
keep
the
Hyderabad
batters
in
check.

R
Sai
Kishore
(1/19)
took
the
other
wicket.
While
chasing,
Tamil
Nadu
lost
the
in-form
N
Jagadeesan
(1)
in
the
third
over
and
fellow
opener
C
Hari
Nishaanth
(14)
in
the
same
over
to
Rakshann
Readdi
(2/23).

But
the
impressive
youngster
B
Sai
Sudharsan
(34
not
out)
and
captain
Shankar
(43)
saw
the
team
home
in
the
15th
over
with
a
76-run
partnership
for
the
third
wicket.

Sudharsan
batted
fluently
and
struck
a
few
stylish
shots
while
Shankar,
who
started
cautiously,
began
hitting
the
ball
powerfully
after
getting
his
eye
in.
He
finished
the
game
by
smashing
a
four
and
six
off
Rakshann
Readdi.

Tamil
Nadu
awaits
the
winner
of
the
Karnataka
vs
Vidharba
semifinal
clash
in
Monday’s
final.
