Batting first, their decision to bat first wasn’t spot on. None of the batsman managed to make much of an impact as all of them got out in their 10’s and 20’s. Off-spinner Bharat Major who has been consistently bowling well in the Kanga was finally reaped with rewards as he took an impressive 5wkt haul taking 5/42 in 12 overs.
