Mulapadu (AP): Skipper Ishan Kishan blasted a 55-ball 100 (8X4, 7X6) to power Jharkhand to a facile nine-wicket win over Jammu and Kashmir in a Group ‘A’ match in the Syed Musthaq Ali Trophy T20 cricket tournament here Friday.
Sent into bat by Jharkhand, J&K made 168 for 9 in 20 overs with Jatin Wadhwan making the top-score of 47 while Rahul Shukla took five wickets.
The talented Kishan took the J&K attack by the scruff of the neck, hammering boundaries and sixers at will.
He lashed shots to all parts of the ground, taking the team home in the 17th over, for its second straight win.
J&K 168 for 8 in 20 overs (Jatin Wadhwan 47, Manzoor Dar 39, Rahul Shukla 5 for 37) lost to Jharkhand 170 for 1 in 16.5 overs (Ishan Kishan 100 not out, Anand Singh 48).
Points: Jharkhand: 4, J&K: 0.
