Sunil’s double century floors Goa

Sunil Ramesh became the first batsman to score a double hundred in the IndusInd Bank Nagesh Trophy 2019-20. The game between Karnataka and Goa was curtailed to a 17 over affair due to overnight rain and slight drizzle in the morning. The ground staff did a wonderful job to get the game started with just a 30 minute delay. Karnataka won the toss and opted to bat first. Sunil Ramesh came out with intent and smashed the bowlers all around the park. Everyone in the ground were awed by the array of strokes played from the Karnataka captain as he created history by becoming the first batsman to score a double hundred in the IndusInd Bank Nagesh trophy.

The Goa team’s morale was lost during the first innings as they couldn’t recover from bashing dished out to them. They even failed to get past 100. All the wickets that fell in this game were through run outs. With this win, Karnataka emerged as group toppers and qualified for the quarterfinals.
