His knock included 6 fours and 17 sixes and it helped Meghalaya reach a score of 230/6 in 20 overs. In reply, the Mizoram side never got going and slumped to a 130-run loss after managing just 100/9 in their quote of 20 overs.

The plate group standings are now shaping up nicely with Bihar on top with 8 points followed by Chandigarh and Nagaland who are on 6 points each. Meghalaya are in fourth place with 4 points having notched up their first win.

Skipper Puneet Bisht came in to bat for Meghalaya with his side in a bit of a spot of bother after losing their first two wickets in the Powerplay. He then went on a six-hitting spree and was well supported by Yogesh Tiwari at the other end who patiently kept rotating the strike and preserved his wicket.

The two put on a partnership of 120 with Bisht contributing to a majority of the same. Even after Tiwari’s wicket, Bisht kept going and eventually ended on 146, just four runs short of what would have been a stunning 150. In the chase, Mizoram were stifled by Aditya Singhania who picked up 4 wickets to condemn them to a huge loss.
