Skipper Sabaorish Ravichandran made 19 off 20 balls in the middle order to ignite the hope of a successful chase.

West Kanto Hurricanes looked to be favourites by the end of the first innings. Their start wasn’t too encouraging as the opener Shubham Shukla was dismissed cheaply. After his dismissal, Wataru Miyauchi and Vinay Iyer tried their best to stage a fight but the target looked too tall amidst an ordinary slow batting approach.
